Notícia triste para os fãs de Game of Thrones. Odin, o cão que interpretou o lobo Summer na série, morreu aos 10 anos de idade.

De acordo com seu dono, William Muhall, ele morreu após uma batalha contra o câncer. Uma vaquinha para custear o tratamento de Odin foi feita e arrecadou mais de 12 mil dólares, que agora serão usados para ajudar instituições de proteção animal.

A estreia do lobo na série aconteceu logo na primeira temporada, em 2011, e ele era o fiel escudeiro de Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead-Wright). O irmão de Odin, Thor, também apareceu no seriado — ambos foram comprados por Muhall meses antes.

A Game of Thrones Direwolves, empresa de turnês que levava os animais para conhecer fãs do programa, publicou uma nota sobre a morte do pet. Leia um trecho:

É difícil expressar em palavras como isso nos afetou como uma família, pois Odin levou uma vida como nenhum outro cachorro. Odin era um membro da família e nós o pegamos quando ele tinha 7 semanas de idade… Todos nos confortamos em saber que ele está imortalizado para sempre em Game of Thrones como Summer, parceiro de Bran Stark na primeira temporada. Para todos que tiveram a sorte de encontrá-lo e colocar um sorriso em seu rosto, lembre-se desse momento. É uma sorte incrível ver um animal de estimação que você ama tanto tornar-se mundialmente famoso e tocar o coração de tantas pessoas.

Descanse em paz, Odin!

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.
