Farrah Abraham‘s pet Pomeranian has died.
Just hours after the former star of Teen Mom OG encouraged her nine-year-old daughter Sophia to prank her friend by telling her that her own dog had died, Farrah broke the news of her dog’s death to her fans and followers with an emotional post on Instagram.
“We lost a best friend, a little brother to my daughter and most adorable Pomeranian Blue,” she wrote. “Having Blue in our lives for five years now brought such a sense of love, support, relief, joy, fun, and so much more. I’ll be grateful for the rest of my life. As a single mom, this little guy has been my right hand man through everything and you all have shown so much love to Blue over the years that it’s surreal.”
Farrah and her daughter were forced to put the dog down on Wednesday evening at 8:35 p.m. after discovering their pet was no longer moving.
“I’m in disbelief and she hands me my half limp Blue — thinking low sugar, we grab syrup and water, his eyes looking at me as if he’s talking, but his tongue can’t move and his body can’t, but I see in his eyes he loves seeing his water and food… I feel his heart beating and we’re giving him love, but as his body goes limper we call the Emergency vet and rush to the Emergency hospital and no heart beat was found,” she continued.
In her Instagram video, Farrah and her daughter were seen petting their deceased pet as tears streamed down their faces.
“I’m very proud of Sophia saying her good byes and loving her best friend and little brother so much,” Farrah said. “From tag to sleeping together, the memories melt my heart. Losing your family’s best friend is awful and Sophia and I have had many firsts but I never thought a first like this would ever happen.”
“We’re here with our man Blue who has done everything for us,” she revealed. “We are so happy we could be with Blue during his last little moments. This is like our first puppy that we ever lose. I’m so thankful for this little guy. I know my little princess is so thankful too. This is the most special little Pomeranian we’ve ever had in our lives.”
The death of Farrah’s beloved pet came just hours after the former reality star was faced with major backlash due to a prank she encouraged her daughter to pull on a friend. As fans may have seen, Farrah suggested Sophia tell her friend that her own dog had died.
“First we’re going to ding dong ditch,” Farrah explained to the child on Snapchat. “Then we’re going to come back and we’re going to be like, ‘Oh my God your dog died.”
Right away, fans took to social media to slam the former MTV star for pulling such a prank.
“This story is disturbing on so many levels! Unfortunately, parenting is done by unqualified individuals,” wrote one person.
Another fan described Farrah’s prank as “sick” with others calling it “emotional abuse.”
