Kaley Cuoco Mourns Loss of Second Dog in a Week

Just one week after the death of Petey, her beloved dog of 15 years, Kaley Cuoco announced that a second rescue pup, Chester, has passed away.

The Big Bang Theory actress delivered the sad news via Instagram, honoring her companion with two touching photos: one of herself cuddling the little white dog and another of Chester alone releasing a big yawn.

"It hasn't been a great week for dogs so with a heavy heart I must tell you, sweet Chester (aka Chedder cheese) has passed away," she wrote in the caption.

It seems the little guy may have had some health issues that Cuoco was unaware of when she adopted him. 

"We rescue these angels blindly and have no idea what problems they may have," she added. "I'm still in shock but I just keep feeling blessed to have him in my life even for a small amount of time."

Cuoco also mentioned that he followed her everywhere and slept on her pillow every night.

"I can sleep knowing that he felt extreme love towards the end of his life," she said.

In her second photo, Cuoco wrote, "Love you forever Chester Chedder Cheese!" and included the hashtags #alldogsgotoheaven and #adoptdontshop.

This must be devastating news to Cuoco, an avid animal lover and rescue advocate. Having to say goodbye to two pets in such a short amount of time while dealing with a divorce - not to mention rumors about her dating ex BF and co-star Johnny Galecki - is a lot to handle.
