Rest in peace, little Buddy. Demi Lovato and boyfriend Wilmer Valderrama are heartbroken over the death of their beloved dog, but their pain has been eased ever so slightly by the outpouring of support from fans.
On Friday, July 31, less than a week after her pup was killed by coyotes in Lovato’s backyard, the “Heart Attack” singer took a moment to thank her Twitter and Instagram followers. In Buddy’s honor, she posted a photo collage of his cutest moments, along with a heartfelt message about how she and Valderrama are coping.
“We can’t thank you all enough,” the Camp Rock alum wrote. “This has been the most painful week of my life, but because Wilmer and I had so much love and support, I’ve been able to stay strong and will continue to get through this difficult time.”
She went on to say that the flood of condolences and well wishes was “unbelievable” and “means the world” to her and her longtime beau. “Love you all tons and ton,” she wrote.
