Former Bachelorette DeAnna Pappas Stagliano had a baby girl back in February and no doubt has been floating on a happy cloud ever since. DeAnna and husband Michael Stagliano named their little baby Addison Marie, and they have posted some of the sweetest photos of their little bundle of love on Instagram.
Sadly, however, DeAnna is now dealing with the death of her best friend of 15 years.
DeAnna's beloved dog died suddenly. She wrote on Instagram with this lovely collection of photos:
My heart is so heavy today as we are mourning the loss of our 15 year old fur baby. She has been with me half of my life. There aren't enough tears in my life to express the loss. She just got diagnosed with cancer & had a tumor removed last Wed. She died in her daddy's arms ... she wouldn't have had it any other way. We love & miss her more than words can say.
How terribly sad. I can relate. I had a cat that was my fur baby who passed away from cancer as well. That was about eight years ago and I still think about Mr. Meow Meow all the time. DeAnna's dog was named Lady.
Another person who can relate is Miley Cyrus. Miley took to Twitter the other day to express how devastated she still is over the loss of her dog in April. Some people don't understand how we can be so upset over the loss of a pet, but many pet owners understand how they really are our fur babies, how they really are family.
My condolences to DeAnna and her family.
Have you ever experienced the loss of a pet?
