As Fredrik Eklund and husband Derek prepare to welcome a little girl, they unfortunately had to say goodbye to another member of their family. The top selling agent of NYC lost his dog, Mousey, over the weekend.
The Million Dollar Listing New York star shared a photo of the ailing pup wrapped up in a blanket, chronicling the devastating scenario of her sickness.
”That’s what’s so heartbreaking, she is the same little girl I’ve slept with in my bed for 9 years, that pup I picked up the first day and named her Mousey, now a family member we have traveled the world with,” he writes. “We give her so much love and the more love we give the more love we want to give, but it’s not helping I have come to understand. Perhaps love can only do so much in the end?”
It was difficult for Derek, who came into Fredrik’s life after Mousey did. “I look at Derek who didn’t ask for this, or her, but is already the most amazing dad ever, as he will never let go, and never give up,” he writes.
The pair already have a plan for memorializing their beloved pet. “They are saying we will get her ashes in 10 days, and Derek and I will go to Fire Island and spread it in the wind over the beach she loved so much,” he writes in another post. “So she can go back to the birds, waves and winds she always wanted to be a part of.”
”Anyone who’s ever known me knows how much I loved her. She was the kindest little dog, she never hurt anyone, never did anything wrong,” Fredrik says. “All she wanted was to be loved, and that she truly was by so many. She always will be.”
