Dog lover Martha Stewart — whose beloved chow puppy Ghenghis Khan died in an explosion in March — feels for Jessica Simpson, whose maltipoo Daisy was snatched by a coyote in L.A. earlier this week.

"It's pretty sad," Stewart, 68, told Wednesday at Us' 25 Most Stylish New Yorkers bash in NYC. "She should have watched it more closely, though. She should have been more careful."

Stewart said she met Daisy when she and Simpson, 29, filmed a Macy's commercial together a few years ago.

Her advice to the heartbroken singer?

"Get another dog," Stewart told Us. "I think it's very important to get another dog, someone else to love. You just have to find the dog that's the right match for you."

As of Wednesday, a dog-finding service,, had been making calls to some 1,000 of her neighbors asking if they'd spotted Daisy, who was given to Simpson by ex Nick Lachey five years ago.

Though she hasn't yet found the dog, Simpson is remaining optimistic.

"Still holding out hope despite the a--holes that say is it a dumb thing to do," she Twittered on Wednesday night. "Daisy is my baby ... why would I stop searching? I'm a mom."
