"I don’t even know how to say this. This pain is the worst pain I’ve ever felt. Maui was my soulmate, the connection was unlike any other. She didn’t care who I was and what I did, she just loved me unconditionally," the High School Musical alum said on Instagram after finding out about Maui's death.
"[Christopher] and I knew with Maui she wasn’t just a dog she was something special. She had the purest soul. I know dogs don’t live as long as we do but why not? I wanted more time with her," she wrote.
"I wasn’t ready for this and now I’m broken," Ashley continued. " I will miss you every single day of my life Maui, I will never forget how much joy and love you brought to me and [Christopher]."

"I can’t stop crying but hopefully in time that will heal but know you are always a part of me and one day we will be together again. My angel. My heart," she said.
Ashley had shared with her fans that Maui was not feeling well on June 16. On the same day she had to attend a friend's wedding, so Christopher, 37, stayed with the dog at the hospital.

"Knowing my husband was just [going to] stay at the hospital all day even just to see her a couple times every couple hours made me feel at ease," she wrote. "Thanks for loving Maui as much as I do and being the best dog dad out there!"
