We said good bye this morning to our sweet girl Ava. Her spirit was always there but her body finally gave out. A year and a half she survived post surgery with as much determination and love as she gave her whole life! Nine and half years she graced our lives and we will miss her dearly! So thankful she was in our lives. See you on the other side of the Rainbow Bridge one day Ava!

I’m really sorry to read this about Super Ava, you have my sincere condolences. Thank you for allowing us to be part of her journey on three. She was such a sweetie, and a one-of-a-kind girl. I know you will miss her dearly.
I wish we could have more time with our fur kids. Ava was still a kid. She left this world knowing that she was loved though, and that is all any of us could ever want when it’s our time right? What a gift you gave her all her life, right up to the end.
Run free sweet Ava, go be Queen of the Rainbow Bridge now, your royal subjects are waiting. xoxoxoxo

I am so sorry to hear about Ava. Run free sweet girl. This part of our journey is the hardest. Watch for signs and I am sure she will give you some. The grief will come in waves. Some good days and some bad days. Thinking of you

Sweet, sweet Super Ava jumped into our hearts from day one💖 And our hearts break with yours. Such a loved and cared for girl.
So very, very sorry to read she had to head to rhe Bridge. She knew uoh lpved jer enoigh yo give her the gift of release qhen ahe let you know she was ready to be free of her failing earth clothes. And yes, her Spirit is no longer trapped and can now be free to flourish in her energy form.
Ava really has brought so much hope and Inspiration to others. She showed everyone statistics don’t mean much around here. She just got on to living life to the fullest and CLEARLY was loved every single moment of every siingle day!
We know rhe void you are facing. We know the depth of your grief that seems never ending. We also know that the never ending happy memories you shared jn those 9 1/2 years will eventually become stronger than the grief. Those memories are what defined your life with Ava.
Just as privileged as you felt to have Ava in your life, she felt just as privileged to have you in hers❤
How is the “puppy” handling things? I’m glad Ava got to show the pupper how to be a good dog.
And how is JJ doing?
Thank you for sharing Ava’s journey with us…all,of it. When you can, we would love to hear more about this beautiful Soul.
Surrounding you with Ava’s eternal light
