Lady Gaga’s dog Alice passed away this week.
The Mother Monster shared the sad news with her fans on Twitter last night. Gaga said that her dog Alice was suffering from cancer and that her family decided to put her down.
Lady Gaga writes:
“My puppy Alice died. We had to put her down, cancer ate away at a little angel. My daddy is so sad, we all are, lost a member of our family.”
The singer and her puppy were best friends since she was about 10-years-old. In recent years, however, Lady Gaga has been on the road and hasn’t spent too much time with her dog. Gaga said that she regretted not being with her dog during Alice’s final days.
“I love being an entertainer but it is so painful sometimes to be away from home 17 years she held on, so many memories. Nothing beats family… I remember her laying my bed, she knew when I was sad, or when I was sick. I should have been there. I just pray Alice found her wonderland.”
The singer also shared a photo of herself with Alice when she was just a puppy.
E! Online reports that the singer has been walking around in an all black outfit today to mourn her lost pet. You can see a photo of Lady Gaga’s somber, and ridiculous, outfit here.
