Sweet, lovable, naughty, tenacious, beautiful are just a few words to describe Ava Rose. When Richard Powell showed us Ava’s dam Angel, we were totally smitten. We were thrilled when some years later he and Elizabeth Leaman offered us the little ball of fur they called Avocado. Avocado was renamed Ava Rose and grew into a welsh who epitomized the standard. After finishing her championship, Ava went to live with our friends Linda and Rudy. Ava wormed her way into the hearts of Paul, Margit and Tim too and became the beloved pet of two households. She could not have lived her life with more loving humans, for which we will be forever grateful. Those of use who are breeders can identify events that were important in moving our breeding programs forward. For us, one such event occurred the day we brought Ava Rose home. Ava is dam of our wonderful companion and stud dog GCh Abbeyrose Jersey Boy (Frankie) and great grand dam of the fabulous Captain Jack. Thanks for everything Rosebud – Rest in Peace.
