Hilary Duff has revealed that her beloved pet dog Dubois has passed away.
The actress – who has a five-year-old son named Luca – opened up about her loss on Instagram.
‘I never let myself imagine what this day would look or feel like. It was us. And we were invincible. I am having to look into your beautiful amber almond shaped eyes and tell you goodbye today,’ she began.
‘And honestly I would take the pain of losing you 10x over to have had you for even a quarter of that time my dubie. First of all…thank you…for being my best friend…truly. You have been with me though true pain, true happiness and joy, true confusion and disappointment and all over again.’
