SELMA BLAIR is mourning the loss of her dog following an accident.
The former Anger Management actress took to Instagram to “ask for prayers” after her veterinarian recommended the Chihuahua-pug named Ducky be put to sleep because the 13-year-old was suffering.
“Please say prayers for Ducky,” she captioned a picture of Ducky and her son Arthur laying in bed. “She had a terrible accident this evening. The vet recommended ending her suffering. But when her tail wagged, I couldn’t do it. We are going ahead to try to put her body and organs back together. She is our home. We ask for this miracle. Please say a word. Arthur’s heart is broken.”
Despite Selma’s initial refusal to let go of her furry friend, she subsequently revealed they had made the difficult decision to have Ducky put down.
“Run with the angels,” she wrote. “We miss you so much. So much, sweet girl. Please send us our next dog. With the spirit of you… Our hearts are broken.”
Selma did not share any details about the accident which led to Ducky’s death.
Blair adopted Ducky from a shelter in 2015 and earlier this year (17), she opened up about the close bond Arthur, six, and the pooch shared, despite her advanced years.
“They love each other very much, but it’s very much brother and sister,” she told People magazine in March (17). “My boy just wants to squeeze her as tight as he can and play games and have pillow fights, and that ship has sailed for Ducky. But she’s done great with it (sic).”
“She cuddles with Arthur,” the proud mum added. “She loves Arthur the most when he’s asleep, but she gladly goes to him and sits on his lap any chance she gets! They both have a deep love for each other.”
