Chrissy Teigen has always been our go-to person to make us laugh on social media, all while keeping us woke about the real issues in the world, both big and small. Last week, unfortunately, she’s taken to her accounts for a different reason.
We’re so sad to report that she and John had to say goodbye to their dog, Puddy, who is hopefully already getting belly rubs up in puppy heaven. Chrissy has been posting pictures honoring her pup all morning and wrote the following caption, which originally broke the news.
“John and I got Puddy in our first year of dating, when I convinced him half-birthday presents were a real thing. 10 years ago, on May 30th, I found the dog that would be there for us through every up, down, new house, new city, new tour, new travel. He welcomed new pups and loved new babies and new bellies. He was there for everything. Every time I needed a taste tester, someone to kiss or needed to sob into his stinky rolls, he was there. It’s true what they say. We are their entire lives and it is the greatest shame that they can only bless us with a short spark of time in ours. I always knew I would lose a piece of me when he left us. I feel the hole now. I will love you forever, my boy. My heart aches. Thank you so much for everything, everything.”
We love crying first thing in the morning.
Our hearts go out to Chrissy and John during this difficult time, and we hope they know that Puddy was just as much a social media legend as his mom is. In slightly happier news, it turns out that Puddy is actually survived by his wife, Pippa, which Chrissy made sure to clarify in a separate post along with legitimate wedding pictures featuring the two dogs.
Try again and tell us that pets aren’t integral members of the family, we dare you.
