Barbra Streisand and her Coton de Tulear Samantha—whom she affectionately called “Sammie”—had been inseparably for the past 14 years. Sadly, the beloved pup passed away on Sunday—just one week after her birthday.
Streisand posted a heartbreaking message to her Instagram: “Jason took this pic of me holding Sammie on Mother's Day. This is the last time my picture was taken with my beloved girl Samantha. May she rest in peace. We cherish every moment of the 14 years we had with her. May 2003 - May 2017.”
The little white dog had featured prominently on Streisand’s Instagram, living a life that many dogs—and even humans!—could only dream of. Sammie traveled on tours (sometimes even appearing on stage!) and enjoyed vacations with Streisand and her husband James Brolin. The photogenic pooch was tapped to appear in advertising campaigns alongside Barbra and was so pampered that she even had a birthday cake decorated in her image!
We send our condolences to Barbra Streisand but commend her for giving Sammie such a special, celebrated, and much-loved life.
