Chrissy Teigen’s 10-year-old French bulldog, Pippa, has died. The model and television personality went to Instagram on Thursday to pay tribute to her beloved dog.
“Our beautiful little pippa just died in my arms, not long ago,” Teigen wrote in an adorable photo of her and the cute puppy. “I was 10 years old, I remember picking her up in Gainesville and documenting our journey home.”
“She was a daring woman,” Teigen continued. “I loved her pearl necklace and never took anything from ANY new dogs we brought in. Our dog on the way with Sade, a touring dog for years. We love her very much.”
Teigen concluded the emotional message with a thank you to her late English bulldog Puddy, who died in 2018, sharing: “We love you sweet girl. I know you are making hell there. Thank you for giving us your whole life.”
Teigen’s husband, JJohn Legend, shared his own post in tribute to his “Little Pippa”.
“We are going to miss our little Pippa. This photo shows her living her best life: on the road with her dad, wearing pearls,” Legend wrote alongside the sweet photo of him and the “classy” puppy posing for a selfie. “We got her near Gainesville FL, so I gave her my best southern accent impression every time I spoke on her behalf. She was smart, classy, and didn’t take herself seriously. She gave us so much joy for 10 years. We love you Pippa! “
The sad news of the family’s loss comes a day after Teigen shared a heartfelt post about feeling “lost” after becoming embroiled in a cyberbullying controversy earlier this year.
“I feel lost and I need to find my place again, I need to get out of this, I desperately want to communicate with you instead of pretending everything is fine. I’m not used to any other way !!” the model wrote in a passionate Instagram post.
“Canceling club is something fascinating and I have learned a lot. Only a few understand it and it is impossible to know until you are in it. And it is difficult to talk about it in that sense because you obviously sound whiny when you are.” I’ve clearly done something wrong, “he continued.” It sucks. There is no winning. But there is never here anyway. All I know is that I love you, I miss you, and I just needed an honest moment with you because I’m … tired of being sick with myself all day. “
