Chelsea Handler is mourning the death of her dog, Tammy. The outspoken comedian announced the sad news on Instagram Friday night. Along with an adorable photo, Chelsea shared an emotional farewell letter that reads as follows:
“I lost my bear today. She was struggling and I couldn’t bear to have her fight anymore. Anyone who doesn’t believe a dog changes your life has never rescued one. I only had 2 years with Tammy, but she made sure I never went to bed once without hearing her little paws mount my stairwell 2 paws at a time. If my door was closed, she slept outside my room like a security guard. Dogs give you something you never knew was missing. I love you, bear. Thanks for being such a girl. I will get another dog that needs a home and it will remind me every day how much I miss you. Lub lub lub.”
In 2014, the late-night talk show host ended her popular E! series Chelsea Lately before launching her self-titled Netflix talk show, Chelsea, in 2016.
