On Tuesday, July 28, sad news spread across Twitter after Demi Lovato revealed her dog Buddy died. The "Cool for the Summer" singer posted a heartfelt message on her social media account sharing the news of her and boyfriend Wilmer Valderrama's sweet pup's passing. The 22-year-old is "heartbroken," especially since Buddy wasn't part of her and Valderrama's family for too long. You might recall that Lovato got Buddy for Christmas in 2014 and was beyond thrilled with the adorable ball of white fluff. I mean, who could blame her? He sure was super cute.
Lovato didn't go into details of Buddy's death, but she is ensuring his memory lives on with these beautiful words:
We are absolutely heartbroken to be writing this but Wilmer and I are devastated to inform you that we lost our little angel Buddy last Sunday. He was taken from us way too soon in a tragic accident and though I will never know why this had to happen, I do know that God only puts us through situations that we can handle so with that, together we our staying strong. We have incredible people around us and so much love and support which is holding us up in this time of need. Buddy was loved by so many people and as small as he was, he made a huge impact in our lives. He truly was human in a way and we were so blessed to have him in our lives. We ask you that you please respect our privacy while we take this time to grieve and remember the magical moments we spent with our little angel. We will never forget our baby boy Buddy and his gentle loving spirit will live on in our hearts forever. RIP my tiniest little nightingale, Buddy...
At the end of the post, Lovato added the following quote from Robert N. Munsch's popular children's book I'll Love You Forever: "I'll love you forever, I'll like you for always, as long as I'm living my baby you'll be..."
