O buldogue francês Pepper de Reese Witherspoon morreu esta segunda-feira na sequência de um "cancro agressivo", partilhou a filha da atriz, Ava Phillippe, no Instagram
"Hoje é um dia difícil. A nossa doce menina, Pepper, morreu ontem à noite de um cancro agressivo, contra o qual ela estava a lutar há meses", escreveu Ava,de 21 anos.
"Quando pensamos que ela estava a melhorar, as coisas pioraram e ela morreu em paz, cercada por aqueles que a amam. Ela gostava de brincar no quintal com o nosso Labrador, Hank, e fazia todos rirem com seus 'zunidos' surpreendentemente rápidos pela casa. Ela também tinha uma maneira única de se expressar com pequenos ruídos engraçados que pareciam ser de algum tipo de pombo."
Today is a tough day. Our sweet girl, Pepper, passed away last night from an aggressive cancer, which she’d been battling for months now. Just when we thought she was getting better, things took a turn for the worst, and she passed peacefully, surrounded by those who love her. If you ever met Peps, you’d know she was such a special girl. She was smart, sassy, and loved cuddling. She enjoyed playing in the yard with our Labrador, Hank, and would make everyone laugh with her surprisingly speedy “zoomies” around the house. She also had a unique way of expressing herself with funny little noises that sounded like they were from some sort of pigeon. Pepper was simply the best, and I repeatedly told her how perfect I thought she was. This girl got me through so many tough times, including some of my teenage years, and I am forever grateful for our bond. I’ll always treasure the times when I’d come home from college and she would meet me at the door, jumping for joy, and I’d pick her up so she could lick my face. She really knew how to make me feel special! As sad as I am and as much as I’ve cried over losing her, I am happy she had such a great life and is no longer in pain. ❤️ Love you forever, miss Peps.
