It was a sad day for Miranda Cosgrove as she mourned the loss of her beloved pet of 13 years, her toy poodle, Pearl. The iCarly star wrote on Twitter:
“My dog, Pearl, passed away today. She was there on my first day of kindergarten and my first day of college. I’ll love her forever”
Miranda had lots of support from her co-stars, as both Jennette McCurdy and Nathan Kress sent messages to their friend. Jennette tweeted, “My heart goes out to @MirandaCosgrove,” while Nathan sent this message to Miranda upon hearing of the loss of her pet:
“That breaks my heart…I’m so sorry. I know how it feels, and I know it’s incredibly hard right now…wish I coulda met her.”
Last year Miranda talked to People magazine about Pearl, and says she even considered taking the pup along on her tour last summer. “I wanted to bring my dog on tour really badly, but she’s very old and I wasn’t sure if she would be able to handle touring life,” she said at the time.
The 19-year-old actress remembered how hard it was to leave her behind. “She’s very smart,” she said. “She watches movies with me sometimes, and she knows the bad guy before I do, so she totally understood that I was packing and leaving.”
