Axel was truly a good dog. He passed away in Arlene's and Bob's arms on Saturday night, May 11, 2013.
We are forever grateful to Dr. Diana Jones and her assistant Jackie of ER4 Pets who came to our home to help us say goodbye to him. Their compassion gently eased his suffering and our heartache.
It was his wonderfully expressive face that won our hearts at the San Diego dog pound 12 years ago. Dr. Smith once said he could never play poker with a face like that. He loved to bring the newspaper in from the driveway every morning and to stand in the water at OB Dog Beach and bark his happiness. He liked to see his friends in Old Poway Park every morning on his walk with Bob. He also loved his grandchildren, Liana, Richie, Cassidy and Cameron.
We wish to thank Drs. Teague, Smith and Shinzaki and their staff at Poway Animal Hospital for a lifetime of loving care.
Rest in peace big boy, we miss you so much.
Please hug your pet in Axel's memory.
