Denise Richards has returned from an overseas trip to some terrible news.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills mom shared a sad update on her Instagram on January 12. "Heartbroken," she wrote. "Came home from Spain to say goodbye to our Louie.... did everything to keep him here. Sadly for us, it was his time to cross the rainbow bridge."
Denise also shared a little of Louie's backstory as well as her appreciation for his time with their family.
"We rescued him [10 years] ago and he’s one of the funniest & most animated furry babies. I’m so grateful he waited until I got home so I could be with him. I know he’s now with some of his siblings & his nana (my mom) but it still hurts. Louie you are so loved & will be missed terribly. Thank you for blessing us with your unconditional love & effervescent beautiful spirit my [love]," she wrote.
In a previous Instagram post, Denise shared that Louie was struggling. "Praying for our [Louie]," she wrote earlier this month. "I love this guy so much. He had a rough life when he was younger.. we rescued him 9 yrs ago & he’s just one of the funniest dogs we’ve ever adopted. It’s so hard when they enter their senior years. He’s so loved by all of us & hopefully he’ll make a positive recovery."
