Our hearts are breaking for Joey King. The actress just revealed that her dog, Charlie, had unfortunately passed away. A pet can definitely become a huge part of your life, so we are so sorry for her loss.
“I had to say goodbye to my little man today. Charlie was my goofy sidekick for 15 and a half years and I’m so thankful for it,” she wrote on Instagram. “I love you Charlie forever and ever. I’ll miss you and your warm cuddles always.”
“In 2011, we received this blessing to our family. Nine years later, you turned into everyones best friend. Your slobbery good mornings and always showing us your toys were the best ever. Your cuddles always felt better than the ones before and your loyalty to our family was incomparable,” the Stranger Things star wrote on Instagram on August 3, 2020. “My heart has broken today. you were the heart and soul of this family and if anyone met Dolly, you know how special she truly was. As I held your paw while you were going to heaven… I thought about the memories we made together and the adventures we went on like, London. Orlando. Los Angeles. Canada. Atlanta. You name it, dolly had probably been there. I’ll never forget you. Never. ‘All dogs go to heaven because, unlike people, dogs are naturally good and loyal and kind.’ I love you, Dolly Brown. you will always be our number one.”
“Mighty’s on the other side now. After seven days of searching from sunrise to sunset and into the wee hours, today, the seventh day ~the number of completion~ we found his collar,” the actor shared on Instagram. “I have wept more this week than I thought possible, which has been very cathartic and healing… I left no stone unturned, crawled through all the man holes, under the roads, searched every back yard and creek bed. Had two separate sniffer dogs do their best as well. I feel so grateful to have learned from my little Mighty man that love is eternal and the true meaning of devotion. I feel sure he was looking down on me whistling in every back yard and knowing that I was doing all I possibly could to respect our bond. He was more than a companion. It was a soul connection for sure. I’m sorry. I love you. Thank you.”
Previously, the singer tragically lost her cat, Kitty Purry.
“Kitty Purry crawled through my then-boyfriend’s window 15 years ago, fully pregnant and seeking shelter. Two litters and many moons later, this street cat became a lovable mascot to many. Sadly, Kitty completed her 9th life last night. I hope she rests in salmon fillets and tuna tartare way up in catnip heaven,” she shared. “Kitty, thanks for the cuddles and companionship along the way. Big thanks to my brother David and @garethwalters for being great co-parents. #kittypurryforever.”
“We had to say goodbye to Louis The Dog today,” the actor shared on Instagram. “He lived 14 really good years. I can honestly say that for a stretch of time when things in my life weren’t great, he was my best friend. He was my guy and I’m going to miss him. RIP Lou.”
“Today we lost the most special girl. Thank you for always putting a smile on my face. It hurts so bad knowing that I won’t get to cuddle with you one last time, but I know you’re thriving up there in doggy heaven,” Nia wrote on Instagram on March 15, 2020. “Love you so much, Olive, it won’t be the same without you.”
“I’ve been working away on the new songs for most of this year in New Zealand,” the singer wrote in a newsletter to her fans in November 2019. “It’s been going pretty well, but something happened last month that I need to tell you about. Some of you may know about Pearl, my dog. Pearl came into my life in 2018, and almost immediately changed everything for me. As anyone who has had the pleasure of raising a dog can understand, my life grew exponentially. Pearl brought an immeasurable amount of joy and purpose into my world. Love vibrated all around us. I felt my life growing and swelling in healthfulness, this orb of contentment glowing around me and Pearl, and our family.”
The “Royals” songstress revealed that her furry friend had unfortunately been sick throughout his whole life, but that month, the illness had taken turn for the worse.
“One day we woke up and I knew, in that way mothers do, that he was sicker than we had realized, and that we were nearing a point where his body wasn’t going to be able to cope,” Lorde continued. “I rushed him to the specialists. Pearl had two cardiac arrests about an hour apart, and after the second one, he died. I was holding him when he went, and I know he knew that I was there. But this loss has been indescribably painful, and a light that was turned on for me has gone out. I have lost my boy, and I need some time to see the good again, to finish making this [album] for you. It won’t be the same work — as anyone who has felt loss can understand, there’s a door that opens that you step through, and everything is different on the other side.”
Jeffree broke down in tears over the loss of his dog Diamond in a YouTube video uploaded in June of 2019.
“This may be the hardest video that we’ve ever had to upload. There’s no easy way to say this. But a few days ago we lost a member of our family. Diamond Star, our beautiful 9-year-old Pomeranian, she passed away a few days ago,” he said. “I’m so empty, I just feel so hollow. I can’t believe it, the fact that there’s one less in our tribe is so heartbreaking. I just feel so empty right here. If anyone else has ever had a loss of a pet you know how horrible and deep this is. I’m just so grateful that we got to spend so much time with her.”
“All I feel is sorrow. We’re surrounded by our dogs and the fact that my baby isn’t sitting in front of us is really, really hard,” the makeup mogul continued. “She was such a huge part of my life. Diamond, I love you so much. Thank you for being so special in my life.”
And in October 2019, his pup Daddy also unfortunately passed away after suffering complications from an emergency surgery needed to treat an abscess in his liver.
#RIPDaddyStar 💔 With heavy hearts we have to share the devastating news that our dog Daddy passed away early this morning. His body couldn’t handle the surgery + the complications of his medical condition. I can’t put into words how much we love our pets and how much this hurts pic.twitter.com/qIDcFVQy4u
“#RIPDaddyStar. With heavy hearts we have to share the devastating news that our dog Daddy passed away early this morning,” he wrote on Twitter. “His body couldn’t handle the surgery and the complications of his medical condition. I can’t put into words how much we love our pets and how much this hurts.”
“My precious baby has passed away too young due to a genetic heart disease,” she wrote on Instagram. “Hard to explain how much I loved this cat and how heartbreaking this is. I loved jasper more than most things. I know everyone says this about their pet but he was a really special animal, totally one of a kind. He brought me and my family so much joy and I miss him so so much already.”
The “Thinking Out Loud” crooner’s manager, Stuart Camp, was looking after the little guy while Ed was away on tour. And his wife shared the heartbreaking news in August 2019.
“Our lovely little bud Baby Ba Boo aka Graham the Kitten passed away last night after being hit by a car. We are absolutely heartbroken,” she wrote on Instagram. “He was such a dude. Funny and clever and best mates with a massive German Shepherd. We are going miss you so much. Thanks for all the fun.”
Joe and Sophie are mourning the loss of their dog, Waldo. According to reports, the Jonas Brothers singer and the Game of Thrones actress’ Alaskan Klee Kai passed away after it was hit by a car in New York City. The pup reportedly “got spooked by a pedestrian, broke free, ran into the street and was struck by a vehicle.” The couple got matching tattoos in the dogs honor, so it’s clear that he meant a lot to them.
Logan recently revealed that his pet parrot had passed away.
“I hate this post so much and I hate that I have to do this but I believe I owe it to y’all after the years of continuous and relentless support… the iconic @MaverickParrot has died,” he shared on Instagram. “After being with me every day for seven years, since before I even started Vine, Maverick passed while I was away in Sweden.”
It turns out, the beloved bird was killed by Logan’s dog, Mastiff. As fans know, the social media star’s clothing line was named after the parrot.
“This little bird inspired so much of what I do. He was my best friend. He’s the inspiration behind the @MaverickByLoganPaul icon worn proudly by millions of people around the world. And as bizarre as it sounds, this little parrot’s legacy will live on FAR beyond his life,” he continued. “I’m not sure where to go from here or how to handle this because it’s symbolic to me in so many ways, but for all the Mavericks out there who continue to see life through the lens of possibility, who continue to persevere and embrace their differences, I have never-ending love and optimism for you. Maverick will always be with us in spirit, and he will forever hold the largest piece of my heart. Stay strong and I will too.”
The influencer also lost his dog, Kong Da Savage, in April of 2019.
“Rest in peace you little inbred. You little golden puffle poof. Your tongue will forever be long and bountiful,” Logan wrote in an emotional Instagram post. “My son @kongdasavage was taken by a coyote last night from our front yard. Despite his savagery, he didn’t stand a chance. F–k. I’ll miss his mindless, empty stares. His incessant 7 am barking. His urine stains on my chestnut floors. You’ve made your dent in this universe and I wouldn’t have expected you to go any other way… Love you @kongdasavage.”
And this isn’t the only time the singer lost a pet. Her beloved dog, Floyd, passed away in 2014, after he was attacked by a coyote.
“I don’t wanna say it because I don’t want it to be real… But my precious baby Floyd has passed away. I am broken,” the former Hannah Montana star shared on Twitter at the time. “I know I don’t mean it but I wish he would’ve taken me with him. This is unbearable. What am I gonna do without him?”

And Demi’s other dog, Buddy, was unfortunately killed by a coyote back in 2015. She shared the little guy with her ex, Wilmer Valderrama, and she was pretty heartbroken over his tragic passing.
“We are absolutely heartbroken to be writing this but Wilmer and I are devastated to inform you that we lost our little angel Buddy last Sunday. He was taken from us way too soon in a tragic accident and though I will never know why this had to happen, I do know that God only puts us through situations that we can handle so with that, together we our staying strong,” she shared in a now deleted tweet. “We have incredible people around us and so much love and support which is holding us up in this time of need. Buddy was loved by so many people and as small as he was, he made a huge impact in our lives. He truly was human in a way and we were so blessed to have him in our lives. We ask you that you please respect our privacy while we take this time to grieve and remember the magical moments we spent with our little angel. We will never forget our baby boy Buddy and his gentle loving spirit will live on in our hearts forever. RIP my tiniest little nightingale, Buddy.”
The High School Musical actress was heartbroken when her dog, Maui, passed away in June of 2019.
“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 actress shared on Instagram. “@cmfrench 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. I wasn’t ready for this and now I’m broken. 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 @cmfrench. 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.”
The musical duo shared the news that their dog, Roadie, had passed away in June of 2019.
“Our sweet lil angel Roadie went to heaven in the middle of the night as we slept on the bus from Memphis to Dallas. AJ and I are beyond devastated that we couldn’t kiss her one last time and tell her she was a good girl, but we will hold onto the 12.5 years of memories we had with her,” Aly wrote on Instagram. “Mama Michalka has been watching her the whole time we’ve been on tour and it’s given us peace knowing that just before yesterday she was happily running through the grass and snuggling with the rest of the pack on the ranch. Sweet funny Roadie Roadster you were a legendary spirit who was never in a bad mood despite your abundance of health issues. Thank you for bringing our family so much joy. And thank you AJ for giving her such a safe and loving home these past 4 years with you and Willow. Rest in peace with the rest of Gods creatures.”
“My angel… there are so many words to describe you. Joyful, kind, soulful, adventurous, giving and playful. You’re one of the last pieces of my childhood to hang onto and I will continue to do so,” AJ added. “Everyone who met you loved you. Every morning you’d greet me with a toy and every night you brought me so much joy as soon as you’d soar onto my bed ready to snuggle up for the evening. Willow and I can’t imagine life without you. Getting home from tour is gonna be incredibly hard but knowing you are free from every ailment that you had brings me peace. I love you Roadie Roadster. Your legacy will live on forever. 6.7.19.”
“Losing your childhood pet hits such a deep spot in your soul, it’s hard to explain,” the actress wrote on Instagram. “Hey Honey… I’d like to think that you are with me as I write this. Part of me feels so relieved that you aren’t in any pain anymore, but most of me is so upset that you’re gone. I know how lucky we were to have you with us for 19 years but in all that time I never let myself think about life without you. No matter where I was living, I was comforted just knowing you were there and being about to see you on FaceTime. Run wild and pain-free sweet pup, until we meet again…”
The Fifth Harmony singer took home the award for Cutest Musician’s Pet at the 2019 iHeartRadio Awards on March 14, 2019. While accepting the award, she unfortunately revealed via Twitter that her dog, Gracie, had passed away.
“I’ve put off writing this or even thinking about it too hard, but I feel like there’s no better day than today for celebrating the beautiful, exuberant life that was my little Gracie,” Lauren wrote. “I say this with the heaviest heart you can imagine. Our angel was taken away from us incredibly too soon a few days ago due to a freak accident that caused breathing complications we couldn’t fix. I can’t begin to express the heartache that we feel, nor the joy that this little being of light brought to my life for the short but beautifully abundant time we had together in this world. I will never forget the way she side eyed me on the regular. Her golden, graceful, playful sassy personality. Her comforting delicious cuddles. The way she grunted and huffed whenever she was annoyed with me. The way she looked at me in the morning with more love than I can understand but always reflected. The way she was always such a good girl. It was unbelievable.”
“My heart yearns to feel her licks across my face but I know her essence is with me forever and at a frequency of love we can’t even conceptualize down here,” she continued. “I pray that’s where she must belong because my heart can’t fathom why the universe would take her so quickly. I appreciate your respect and love during this time of deep mourning.”
The Lizzie McGuire actress’ dog, Dubois, passed away in February of 2018.
“I never let myself imagine what this day would look or feel like. It was us. And we were invincible,” she shared on Instagram. “I am having to look into your beautiful amber almond shaped eyes and tell you goodbye today. And honestly I would take the pain of losing you 10x over to have had you for even a quarter of that time my Dubie. First of all… thank you for being my best friend… truly. You have been with me though true pain, true happiness and joy, true confusion and disappointment and all over again.”
“You are more then I could have ever dreamt up on my own. I haven’t taken a step without you beside me for 10 years. You are my protector my comfort, my shadow, my understanding of all things good and warm and fierce,” Hilary continued. “I can’t imagine this house without your noise, your love, your energy, your smile and wagging tail. I know I will move into other parts of my life without you but I am scared. I have faith you will still be my shadow, my angel. There aren’t adjectives big enough to describe my love for you Dubes. My gratitude. I will miss you everyday of my life my sweet boy. You were that once in a lifetime dog. That special bond that not everybody gets. And I got you. You picked me. You were a force. You changed me forever. I will see you at the other end of the rainbow My boy. Forever indebted to you. RIP Dubois.”
“RIP Sammy,” the “Love Yourself” crooner shared. “You were the best puppy ever.”
In 2009, Justin revealed that the dog was there for him when he moved to a new city and had no friends.
“We moved to a city where we didn’t really know anybody so I wanted a friend, and Sam was that friend. I visited him in an animal shelter, I really encourage going out to an animal shelter to get a dog that doesn’t have a home,” the singer said.
“My family lost our best friend of 17 years yesterday… Frosty,” Stefanie wrote on Instagram at the time. “I love and miss him with my whole heart. Here’s a photo of him and my big brother Trent when he was little. love you so much Frosty boy.”
The Kardashian family’s dog, Gabbana, had to be put to sleep in January of 2019.
“Gabbana was Kendall and Kylie [Jenner]’s dog their entire lives and then when they all grew up and moved out, she became the family dog. When Caitlyn [Jenner] and my mom got separated, I took Gabbana in,” Khloé Kardashian explained in episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians. “So she’s kind of been the family dog and everyone has their own great relationship with her. Even [Kim Kardashian] loves to hate her. I love that whenever I come home from Cleveland, Gabbana is always there.”
The reality star also took to Instagram to share her heartbreak over the loss.
“Last night my sweet Gabbana passed away,” Khloé shared. “She was more than a pet. She was my first child, my companion and my friend. She was incredible! She made sure I was never lonely even during lonely times. The house will never be the same. I never thought I would be this devastated over loosing a dog but 14 years, is a long time together. She filled a significant role in my life and I’m forever grateful. I love you Goober!! I’ll remember you always!”
“I love being an entertainer but it is so painful sometimes to be away from home. 17 years she held on. So many memories. Nothing beats family,” she continued. “I remember her laying my bed, she knew when I was sad, or when I was sick. I should have been there. I just pray Alice found her wonderland.”
