Another one of Lena Dunham’s pets dies

As many of you know, in the last 3 months my heart was stolen by an irascible 13 year old Yorkie named Bowie. After spending a lifetime with my sister @scotlan, her home now contained a baby and another on the way and Bowie’s crotchety old self wouldn’t condone it so she came to live with me, and what started as a tentative guardianship became a full scale obsession. We went to brunch and therapy and the set of a TV show and took at least 5 flights across the US. We laid our heads in a few very chic hotel rooms and walked up and down the river a million miles. She made me feel safe and strong in a sea of change and reminded me that joy needn’t be diminished by a bunch o’ imperfect body parts (she wielded her 3 teeth/3 working legs in style.) My head knew she was 91 in dog years, but my heart felt she was just a sweet baby. On August 13th this sweet baby old mama went to her final home. After a weekend of rapid decline, I knew it was time to let her go so Scotty and I (along with her super model baby Clementine and her wise, cozy husband @mf.goodtimes) came together to bid her farewell. It was peaceful and patient and loving. We laughed and cried like the family that Bowie has made us. Bowie left everyone who saw her, in the street or the airport or the Rite Aid, with a crazy smile. She kept me safe at night, even if it was just from the indistinct shadow of a tank top strewn over a lamp. She made Scotty and my friendship something eternal and deep and boundless. I am so lucky to have been her second mom. I love you Scotty, Clem, JJ and my darling @iolovesyou for capturing it all. Please eat a grilled chicken breast in honor of your second favorite glam rocker today. Meanwhile, I’ll be donating to @seespotrescued in her name, for dogs who don’t have homes and dogs who need new ones.

What keeps happening to Lena Dunham’s pets?

Dunham has lost another of her animals, taking to Instagram on Tuesday to pay tribute to her yorkie Bowie, who died earlier this month after only three months in her care. Bowie had previously lived with the “Girls” star’s friend Scotty Goldbeck for 13 years.

“After a weekend of rapid decline, I knew it was time to let her go so Scotty and I (along with her super model baby Clementine and her wise, cozy husband @mf.goodtimes) came together to bid her farewell,” she wrote. “It was peaceful and patient and loving. We laughed and cried like the family that Bowie has made us.”

Tragically, Bowie isn’t the first pet to die under Dunham’s watch. In June, Dunham lost her cat Gia Maria after owning her for only nine months.

“It was sudden and beyond anyone’s control,” she wrote at the time.

Most notably was the saga of Dunham and her dog Lamby, whom she gave away to The Zen Dog, a facility that aims to change behavioral issues in pooches, after claiming Lamby had suffered abuse as a puppy. However, BARC, the original shelter from which she adopted Lamby, vehemently denied her claims.

“We checked the records for Lamby. He was ‘owner surrendered, not enough time,’ so we do not know where she got ‘multiple owners that abused the dog,’” BARC rep Robert Vazquez told Yahoo Celebrity at the time.

“If Lamby had a bad past or was abused, do you think BARC would have adopted him to Lena knowing she’s a new star and put her — or the dog — in that situation? We would have told her if the dog had issues,” Vazquez fumed. “We are a no-kill shelter. We don’t lie about the dogs’ histories because that gets them returned — and mentally it’s not good for dogs … It’s just hard to believe the dog was nasty when she took Lamby to every green room with her when ‘Girls’ was still a thing 4 years ago.”

Dunham revealed this weekend that she adopted a new Sphynx cat after Gia Maria’s and Bowie’s deaths.

May the Sphynx cat have a better — and longer — life than the others.
