Chrissy Teigen, wife of John Legend, recently announced the death of her beloved Bulldog, Puddy. John gifted Puddy to Chrissy Teigen after she “convinced him half birthday gifts were real” during their first year of dating. Puddy, their “first-born” pup, gave the Internet a scare a few months ago when Chrissy tweeted that he had an emergency vet visit. The family found out that he had a tumor in his heart, but he hung in for a little while longer.

“Today our baby, Puddy, has gone on to the pup heavens. 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 on 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.”
