As previously reported, Duff, who adopted a Labrador mix named Momo in May 2017, mourned the loss of her 10-year-old Bernese Mountain dog with an emotional Instagram video tribute in February 2018.
“I never let myself imagine what this day would look or feel like. It was us. And we were invisible. I am having to look into your beautiful amber almond-shaped eyes and tell you goodbye today,” she wrote alongside the clip. “And honestly, I would take the pain of losing you 10x over to have had you for even a quarter of that time my dubie.
“You are more than I could have ever dreamt up on my own. I haven’t taken a step without you beside me for 10 years,” Duff, who shares son Luca with ex Mike Comrie, continued. “You are my protector, my comfort, my shadow, my understanding of all things good and and warm and fierce.”
The former Disney star concluded the post, “I can’t imagine this house without your noise, your love, your energy, your smile and wagging tail. I know I will move into other parts of my life without you but I am scared. I have faith you will still be my shadow, my angel.”
