4 Trees, Flowers, or Condolences have been shared with support of Avery's family - View on Tribute Wall
A big name for a little pup who rescued us on 05/18/14, he was affectionately known as, Avery-Pie, Boo and Baby Boy. He joined our family to be a companion to his big "sister", Molly, and they quickly formed an unbreakable bond. He often filled the role of "bratty little brother" with ease but always got his way, which Molly never seemed to mind.
Originally known as Tyson, Avery was given his name by his human brother, Heath, and the two of them became very bonded during the first 4 years of his life. Heath not only named him but also trained and taught him every trick he knew, which he learned with ease. The favorite thing was how Avery would sit up on his hind legs and get hugs. He sure knew how to win everyone over with that move. They spent much of their time together side by side and went on lots of runs and rides. When the human parents moved to Georgia, Avery and Molly went with them, but during trips back home Avery and his sister always got to stay with Heath, which they thoroughly enjoyed because they got to visit with their fur-cousins.
Avery found a new passion while here in Georgia and that was making sure that his yard was safe from any trespassers. By that I mean, running full speed out the door, taking a leap and landing 5 feet out from the bottom of the steps to run at the deer barking his loudest "You better get out of my yard!" bark ever heard. He absolutely lived for that! Even if there was a fence that stopped him, in his mind he was the toughest dog in the neighborhood. He would patrol the fence perimeter anytime he was outside and sit at the top of the steps as if on duty watching for anything that came closer than he felt they needed to be. This really meant anywhere in the yard.
Avery loved spending time with his fur-sister, laying in the warm sun, going on walks, snuggling on his bed, scratching his back under the cedar trees, eating homemade cookies, going for rides, playing ball (even if he didn't want to share), listening to mom sing (even though she couldn't), relaxing on his back, getting lots of love from everyone and laying his head on mom's leg while she worked and held his paw.
There are so many things he loved, we loved about him and we will miss deeply. To say that Avery was a beautiful, loving, sweet, unique soul that was unlike any other is putting it ever so mildly. He loved affection and he returned it in multitudes. He was dedicated and loyal to his family and loved spending time with his human cousins. He never met a toy that he tore apart because he just wanted to lay his head on them and cuddle. He was spoiled and pampered in too many ways to mention here but I will say that his pillow on his bed sure is lonely without him.
Due to an unexpected medical emergency Avery left this spiritual plane in his mom and dad's arms. His eyes never left his Mom's face. All the while being told repeatedly that he was the bravest best boy ever, how lucky we were to have him as our family and how much we loved him. But I know he knew all this over the 9 years we had him with us. He was the reincarnation of someone incredibly phenomenal and I hope that when his time comes around again that he blesses another home and family as he has ours. Everyone that met him fell in love just like we did all those years ago. What I wouldn't give to kiss his head, scratch his belly and rub those adorable ears just one more time. He will never be forgotten and will continue to be loved until my dying day.
It's said that "Grief is the price we pay for love." He was worth every moment, every tear and heartbreak. I sure do miss my sweet Boo.
He is survived by his fur-sister, Molly May, his humans: parents, Cinda and Brian Hare, his brother, Heath Curl and fur-cousins, Bailey and O'Malley and also his cousins, Alexis, Peyton & Mikey and the rest of all those who met and fell in love with him. We will watch for you in the stars.
