Those of you who have never owned a dog, will never fully understand the grief that you suffer when your family pet passes away. We say family pet, but dogs become more like a member of the family. Actress Denise Richards is currently in mourning over the death of her dog Scooter, who she took in from a rescue shelter five years ago.
Richards took to her official Instagram account, to post a collage of pictures of Scooter, along with the caption, "Our gorgeous sweet Scooter passed away yesterday. Rescued him 5 yrs ago & he gave so much to our family. Lost his leg to cancer almost 1 yr ago & was stronger than ever. We miss him so much already. Beautiful soul ... #Scooter (sic)."
Unfortunately for Denise Richards, this is not the first time that she has had to say farewell to one of her rescue dogs this year. Earlier in the year, Denise and her family took in another dog named Gladys, who passed away just three weeks after being taken home.
Richards posted at the time, "We lost our beloved Gladys...rescued her 3 wks ago, terrible situation tried everything to save her. Made a huge impact on our family..We miss her already," adding, "Thank u Dr.Rick, Heather, Jeff, Jamie, Stormie, lizette & @BFAS doing everything we could to save her..#Gladys (sic)."
Denise Richards regularly took to her official social media accounts, to posting some beautiful pictures of her dogs, with some very loving messages. Our thoughts and prayers are with you Denise, as we know exactly what you are going through.
