Whether you’re a reality TV fan or not, something we can all empathize with is the loss of a beloved dog.
Khloe Kardashian took to social media on Tuesday to bid a public farewell to her longtime canine companion, Gabbana.
“Last night my sweet Gabbana passed away,” Kardashian wrote. “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!”
Kardashian, who is currently expecting a child, took custody of Gabbana when the dog was 11, following the divorce of her mother, Kris, and her stepfather Bruce Jenner — now Caitlyn Kenner. The black lab was originally adopted with another dog, the aptly named Dolce, a Chihuahua.
Losing a pet is no easier when you’re a celebrity. We send our condolences Kardashian’s way. <3
