Just hours after Lauren Jauregui’s pup Gracie took the award for cutest musician’s pet at the iHeartRadio Music Awards, the songstress took to Twitter to sadly announce that she had to say good bye to her furry friend a few days ago.
“I say this with the heaviest heart you can imagine,” she wrote in a heartfelt message. “Our angel was taken from us incredibly too soon a few days ago due to a freak accident that caused breathing complications we couldn’t fix. I can’t begin to express the heartache that we feel, nor the joy that this little being of light brought to my life for the short but beautifully abundant time we had together in this world.”
“My heart yearns to feel her licks across my face but I know her essence is with me forever and at a frequency of love we can’t even conceptualize down here,” she continued. “I pray that’s where she must belong because my heart can’t fathom why the universe would take her so quickly.”
Jauregui also posted a sweet video with all her favorite Gracie memories. See below.
