Miranda Cosgrove: Mourning the Loss of Her Beloved Dog

Posted Monday October 15, 2012 5:10 PM GMT

They’re called ‘Man’s Best Friend’ for a reason, and now Miranda Cosgrove is grieving the death of her dog Pearl.

The 14-year-old toy poodle passed away over the weekend, and the “iCarly” actress has taken the news pretty hard.

Miranda tweeted, "My dog, Pearl, passed away today. She was there on my first day of kindergarten and my first day of college. I'll love her forever."

Earlier today, she added, "Thanks so much for all the nice messages! I'm so sorry for all the other people who have lost their pets. #greatmemoriesliveonforever :)"

Miss Cosgrove previously decided not to bring Pearl on the road with her, given her advanced age. "She's very old and I wasn't sure if she would be able to handle touring life. [My dad] said that she's been waiting on our couch and looking out the window for the last few nights. I miss her."
