Gavin Ray is a male pup that was first seen on November 13, 2015 by Alice Thigpen. He was small with 5 feet across.
Alice named him after her friend’s 4 year old son, Gavin, who recently passed away from a sudden rare disease. When she asked Gavin’s mom about this, she wrote, “I would love a Gavin Ray. They are our angels and the ocean is our church.”
