“I am so sorry. It’s always hard to lose a pet as they are literally apart of the family,” another commented.

In the photos that Brush shared, it was apparent that her 2-year-old son shared a close bond with Nova, and while Axel has lost one of his earliest friends, he also recently gained a new one. On Tuesday, Aug. 20, Brush and her husband Caleb Brush welcomed their second child together, daughter Evangalynn Kodi Brush, and in the weeks since her both, she and Axel have become inseparable. Frequently sharing updates on social media, Brush in late October opened up about the special bond her children are forming.
