It’s the worst thing imaginable for any dog owner.
LeAnn Rimes is mourning the loss of her beloved pooch Eveie who died on Wednesday after being attacked by a coyote in front of the helpless singer’s eyes.
On Thursday, the 36-year-old celebrity took to Instagram to share the tragic news with her 391,000 owners.
She posted seven adorable snaps of her Chihuahua mix, starting with one of herself hugging Eveie, with a long, gushing caption.
‘This is one of the most difficult, heartbroken moments our whole family has ever experienced,’ LeAnn wrote.
‘Our baby, Eveie, was attacked in front of us yesterday by a coyote. She was so much more than our dog, she was an old soul. She’d look in your eyes and speak deeply into you without any words.
‘Eddie, the boys and myself are left with such a hole in our family and in our hearts,’ LeAnn said of her husband Eddie Cibrian, 45, and his sons Jake, 11, and Mason, 15, with ex Brandi Glanville.
‘She was our daughter, our boy’s best friend.’
LeAnn later admitted that she and her family have taken turns ‘crying and consoling’ each other as they cope with life without Eveie.
‘We were so blessed to have her stumble into our lives, to have LovEd her with every inch of our being and to have her LovE us back just the same.’
‘They’ll never be another Eveie, she was one of a kind. There will always be great LovE and gratitude in our hearts for the years we were so blessed to care for her.’
‘Eveie, I know you can hear us when we say, ‘You were and always will be our angel. We LovE you beyond, beyond. Rest well and we’ll see you again when we ourselves leave this earth plane to join you in the vast field of consciousness,’ ‘ LeAnn concluded.
The sweet tribute compiled of a number of memories LeAnn and Eddie, 45, shared with the small dog.
In the first shot, The Gift Of Your Love singer can be seen embracing Eveie while smiling with her eyes closed.
In the second photo, LeAnn held Eveie in the air and gave her a kiss.
LeAnn also shared photos of Eveie from Christmas wearing a Santa Claus hat as well as an adorable shot of Eveie lounging next to Eddie.
The Take Two actor also posted his own Instagram tribute on Friday, posting a sweet snap of Eveie staring at him over the arm of a chair as he did the same.
He captioned it: ‘One day we will look into each others eyes again, my sweet girl. RIP 2~6~19.’ And he added a heart emoji and prayer hands.
On the same day LeAnn shared another series of photos of herself with Eveie, which show the dog sweetly kissing LeAnn on the cheek as she lies in a pile of leaves.
She captioned it: ‘Baby Girl – you are FOREVER LovEd! As sad as we are, there’s a smile that you brought to our faces that still exists and forever will!’
LeAnn is currently on tour and Eveie’s traumatic death caused her to reschedule three of her shows.
‘Due to a sudden loss, the following shows are being rescheduled,’ LeAnn wrote on Twitter on Thursday.
‘The Newton Theatre in NJ is being rescheduled to Thursday, May 2nd The Cabot in Beverly is being rescheduled to Thursday, February 28th The Flying Monkey in NH has been rescheduled to Friday, March 1st.’
