Chelsea Handler's beloved dog, Chunk, has passed away, she announced on social media.
In a heartbreaking post on Jan. 18, the comedian shared a picture of her dog, who was often seen on her Netflix talk show.
"This guy passed away today. Thank you to everyone who has sent so many goodies, doggy treats, toys, clothes, paintings, stuffed animals, and everything else over the years. He loved being famous and getting recognized, especially without me," she captioned the snap. "So many people loved him, and I really appreciate that and so did he."
She went on to tell a story about her four-legged friend.
"My favorite memory of Chunk is when I was paddle boarding on the Hudson River in upstate NY and he was following me on the shoreline by the trees, and finally jumped in and swam a quarter of a mile to get on my paddle board with me," she said. "I cried that day at how much he loved me. And, today I'm crying because of how much I loved him. My chunky monkey. I love you, baby. Softest doggy in the world. 💛❤️💛a true gentleman."
Unfortunately for Chelsea, losing a pet is something she knows all too well. Last April her rescue dog Tammy, who she also called Bear, passed away due to kidney failure.
