‘Game Of Thrones’ Direwolf, Odin, Dies At Age 10

While the world is dealing with the Coronavirus pandemic, putting the Earth’s population in harm’s way, we have to report some unfortunate news unrelated to COVID-19. Dog lovers and fans of the massive hit HBO series, Games of Thrones, lost a star earlier this week. Odin, a Northern Inuit who played Bran Stark’s pet direwolf Summer in the first season, passed away after a long battle with mouth cancer. The beloved dog spent his final days with his family, walking along the beach and eating all of his favorite things. He was 10 years old.

The family who adopted Odin when he was just 7 weeks old, posted a touching obituary for the GoT star after he passed.

Our family are at immense heartbreak to announce that Odin passed away early this morning. It’s difficult to put into words how this has impacted us as a family for Odin lead a life like no other dog. Odin was a family member first and we got him when he was a pup at 7 weeks old all we wanted were big dogs to take hiking and to sleep at our feet in the evening beside the fire, everything after that was a bonus. Odins passing marks the end of a decade and the end of an era as he taught our friends and family a lot of lessons about life for one dog he has more stories to tell than some people would. Odin has far too many achievements to announce in this post but just look at our social media pages over the past 5 years and see. We can all take great comfort in knowing that he is forever immortalised in the great TV Show Game of Thrones as Summer Bran Starks Direwolf Pup in Season 1 episode 1 . To everyone that was lucky enough to meet him and put a smile on your face please remember that moment. It’s an incredible piece of luck to have a pet you love so well become world famous and touch so many peoples hearts. He was always fond of the beach and his favourite treats which he had almost everyday before his passing. He was met with further illness as the week continued and the vets did everything they could to keep him going but he passed away in his sleep. We are incredibly grateful for the donations made towards Odin treatment and we will use what is needed to pay his vet bill and we will donate the rest between our favourite dog charities the donations will help further dogs in need at this tough time. If you have photos or videos or stories about Odin then please send them or share them with us. Please understand we will try reply to all your messages at this very difficult time in our lives.

While his death is sad, the family’s point of his memory being immortalized on the television show is a great point. We can see Odin whenever we want by revisiting the first episode of the 21st century’s biggest show to date, Game of Thrones (which is set for a prequel series shortly).
