A nation is in mourning this week, as we're approaching the anniversary of a tragic death.
In September 2009, Jessica Simpson's dog, Daisy Mae, was killed by a coyote. It's a loss the singer still feels on a daily basis, as she Tweeted last night: This day last year my life changed because I lost my baby Daisy Mae - the best pup of all time. Give your dog some extra love today!
We can only hope Eric Johnson plays his role in the grieving process and honors Daisy tonight by doing her owner in a style that would make the pooch proud.
Daisy Mae has gone to a better place. That is, somewhere far away from Jessica Simpson.
The Maltipoo was given to Jessica for her 24th birthday by then-husband Nick Lachey.On September 16, Simpson Tweeted that the search was on for Daisy, despite the odds of recovery being low:
"Still holding out hope despite the a--holes that say it is a dumb thing to do. Daisy is my baby... Why would I stop searching? I'm a mom. I'm receiving every building block of faith I can get. Thank you."
Two days later, however, Jess accepted the harsh truth and bid farewell to the dog. She thought a cameo on Entourage, which focused on Daisy's passing, might help in the recovery process.
Alas, not even an insult aimed at Ari Gold was enough to help her move on in the face of such a tragedy. Hang in there, Jess!
