Our beautiful, adventurous Ava! She is a little tomboy. If it rains, she runs outside to play. If there is a mud puddle, she jumps right into it. When the KTM 525 turns on, she is in attack mode going after it!
Baron does none of these things. He rarely goes outside if it rains. He avoids mud puddles and he could care less if the motorcycle roars.
Ava’s adventurous side knows no fear, well almost no fear, she hates when Colin fires up his pneumatic tools!
One of her favorite things to do is leap off of our back patio/deck area. There are 4 stairs that run down from the patio/deck to the ground. She will leap off the top as she runs outside and will run full steam and jump over the 4 stairs as she comes inside.
It is pretty adorable as her ears flop in the air!
My husband keeps him KTM 525 in the living room, so the easiest way to get it inside is to bring it in through the sliding glass door in the back. During these times, we have a ramp in place to allow him to push the motorcycle up it and into the house.
When the ramp is in place, she loves to go sit on it, stare outside and ponder life.
Sadly this week as she attempted to jump over the stairs to come back inside, her front leg caught which resulted in a broken leg 😦
We took her to the vet immediately and he confirmed she broke it in one place and cracked it in another. With breaks comes surgery so we left her in the hands of our amazing vet.
We were able to come pick her up a few hours later. It was the saddest thing I have ever seen. Our poor baby!
The vet told us to make sure she doesn’t try to hop up on anything. We decided to make her a blanket bed on our living room floor! After this picture we added a couple of pillows and toys.
Baron even offers moral support!
Day two I stayed home from work to keep an eye on her. She preferred to spend most of the day curled up with me. I didn’t mind at all.
We took her to the vet this morning for a check up and to have her bandages re-wrapped. Everything is looking good!
She is becoming more mobile. It’s amazing how fast she can hobble around. She is already back to trying to attack Baron, which is her second favorite thing to do!
Ava will be back to 100% in no time! Just have to make sure she doesn’t try to hop up on things.
Do you know how hard it is to make a boxer not jump up?!?!
