Seth Rogen shared that he has lost his beloved dog of nearly 14 years in a heartbreaking tribute he posted to Instagram.
Zelda, a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, was Rogen’s “perfect girl.”
“We said goodbye to our perfect girl Zelda on Thursday, May 4. She was almost 14 years old,” Rogen, began in his tribute.
“She was truly the most special, magical creature. She taught us about love, resilience, strength and kindness,” he shared. “We loved her more than words can describe. Everyone who met her saw what a unique little puppy she was. She’d stare in to your soul with her gigantic buggy eyes. She was so judgmental, that when she loved you, you really knew you earned it, and it made you feel like you had won.”
“She had an incredible life and was lucky to have so many friends and shared her special love with so many people. She was a girl who was so shy no one adopted her as a baby who became a girl who travelled to multiple countries, appeared in three movies, on two magazine covers, and inspired countless works of Zelda-art — including a lighter that is now in the homes of hundreds of people,” Rogen continued.
In past Instagram posts Rogen called Zelda “the sweetest little thing to ever exist” and “his best friend.” She most recently made some appearances on Instgram promoting his products.
He and his wife Lauren also shared some of the things they felt made Zelda special.
“We have a (long) list of things that were special about her,” he wrote. “Here are a few highlights:
—Her big eyeballs and her intense eye contact
—How it feels when she stretches while I’m holding her in my arms
—How she comes inside before she’s done pooing, takes a treat and then runs to the door when she realizes she has to poo more
—The sound she made for Zankou chicken.
—The way the fur on her legs looks like culottes from the back
—Her leave me alone side eye
—The way she would sit and wait to be called to walk through the metal detectors at the airport and then she’d run through them and everyone would comment about what a good girl she was
—How she always wants to sleep in Seth’s spot
—When she would go to the door pretending to have to go out, but just wanted to get us away from our food, although she would never actually go for it
—Her big gigantic poops that always surprised people because of her small size
—The way she loved sprinting up and down hotel hallways
—How she’d ask Seth to take her outside over and over again just for treats
—The way she pounced on seaweed and her paws left tracks in the sand. And then she’d “kill it” and ask to take it home.
—How incredible it felt to wake up in the morning and see her starring back at me.”
The couple concluded, “We belonged to each other and we will miss her forever.”
Rest in Peace, Zelda.
