9-year-old Molly Kimball wept for her beloved pet Ava.
Molly has brain cancer.
Ava was her special service dog, trained to protect the child from falling due to dizzy spells.
But, their world was shattered in March when Ava got loose and attacked their neighbor and dear friend, 6-year-old Isabelle Gernhardt.
The bite to her face was so severe; Isabelle needed more than 100 stitches.
Both families with their lawyers arrived at municipal court to decide Ava's fate, and eventually agreed to banish the dog.
Molly lost her beloved dog, Isabelle lives with nightmares, and both girls lost each other and their once innocent friendship.
