It’s a sad day in Chrissy Teigen‘s household.

The model — who is currently expecting her second child with husband John Legend — announced to fans Wednesday, March 7, that her dog Puddy has passed on over the rainbow bridge.
Sharing photos of the beloved bulldog, the 32-year-old wrote on Instagram, “I love you. I will miss you every day.”
The Lip Sync Battle host got the pup 10 years ago when she first started dating her husband. Since then, Puddy “married” her other dog, Pippa, as well as witnessed their family grow with the arrival of Chrissy and John’s firstborn daughter, Luna Stephens.

“Today our baby, Puddy, has gone on to the pup heavens,” she shared. “10 years ago, on May 30th, I found the dog that would be there for us through every up, down, new house, new city, new tour, new travel. He welcomed new pups and loved on new babies and new bellies. He was there for everything. Every time I needed a taste tester, someone to kiss or needed to sob into his stinky rolls, he was there.”
Puddy, according to Chrissy, was named after fan-favorite Seinfeld character David Puddy because “they both shared a love of sitting and staring at nothing.”

“It’s true what they say. We are their entire lives and it is the greatest shame that they can only bless us with a short spark of time in ours,” Chrissy wrote in a tribute to her dog. “I always knew I would lose a piece of me when he left us. I feel the hole now. I will love you forever, my boy. My heart aches. Thank you so much for everything, everything.”
Rest in peace, Puddy.
