Chelsea Handler Mourns Beloved Dog With Sweet Instagram Tribute: ‘I Lost My Bear Today’

Chelsea Handler is saying goodbye to one of her beloved dogs after making the sad decision to put the suffering animal to sleep after suffering kidney failure.

Handler adopted Tammy, a rescue dog, two years ago, and affectionately called her Bear.

“I lost my bear today,” Handler writes in a heart-wrenching Instagram post. “She was struggling and I couldn’t bear to have her fight anymore.”

She adds: “Anyone who doesn’t believe a dog changes your life has never rescued one. I only had 2 years with Tammy, but she made sure I never went to bed once without hearing her little paws mount my stairwell 2 paws at a time. If my door was closed, she slept outside my room like a security guard. Dogs give you something you never knew was missing. I love you, bear. Thanks for being such a girl. I will get another dog that needs a home and it will remind me every day how much I miss you. Lub lub lub.”

Earlier this year, Handler shared a photo of herself giving Tammy a big snuggle on Valentine’s Day.

Happy Valentine's Day, Tammy.
