Saying goodbye. Miley Cyrus took to Instagram in January 2021, and mourned the loss of her dog Mary Jane after a long battle with cancer.

“MJ was diagnosed with cancer over a year ago … & since then multiple types and tumors,” she shared via Instagram Stories. “I was told it’d be an uncertain amount of time until she’s gone. Advised to spend every second savoring anything new. I had been for 10 years.”

The former Disney Chanel star continued, “In life it is easy to take things for granted. To let little miracles pass you by without moments of gratitude. To be oblivious when the rays of heaven shine down onto you. But when it came to my ANGEL Mary Jane … never once did I forget the gift I had been given.”

Months later, couple Brooklyn Beckham and Nicola Peltz also shared tributes after losing their dog, Frankie, in October 2021.

“My heart is shattered,” the actress wrote. “My angel, Frankie has gone to heaven and I can’t fathom the idea of not being able to kiss his face one more time. Every room he walked into everyone ran to him. His energy was so pure and full of happiness. He was the kindest dog I’ve ever met. The fact I got to be his mom is one of the proudest things I can say. I miss him so much, my heart will never be the same without him here on earth. I love you so much Frankie and I know I’ll see you again one day. Thank you for loving me.”

Brooklyn, for his part, posted a photo of the pooch, writing, “Frankie was the strongest, kindest dog I’ve ever met. He was so gentle and it was an honor to be his dad. I miss you so much my boy.”
