A year ago today, Demi Lovato got her very first dog, Buddy. Buddy was a sweet little white fluff ball of a pup who was tragically killed earlier this year by coyotes in Demi’s backyard in L.A.
Demi is still understandably devastated by the loss of her “very first son,” (our hearts!) as she called Buddy on Instagram. Earlier today she posted a loving tribute to Buddy that hit us right in the feels. She captioned the precious video by writing, “I felt like he was literally my baby because the connection I had with this little guy was scarily human…I love you so much Buddy and I miss you every single minute of every single day but you’ll live on in my heart with memories like this forever…. RIP my little baby boy and angel. I love you my little lion heart. Your light is inside of me.”
Our hearts are breaking for Demi, BUT there’s good news, guys. She’s gotten a brand new puppy! Demi calls him her “snuggle bug” and her “little superhero,” so she’s named him (appropriately) Batman. Our comic book-loving hearts are exploding right now.
Losing a pet is always a heartbreaking experience, and making the decision to get a new one is a step that sometimes just takes time. We’re so glad that Demi is ready to make that leap of faith and let a new (totally adorable) puppy into her life. Also, Batman looks like he might be the most cuddly Dark Knight we’ve ever set our eyes on. No offense, Ben Affleck. (Or Christian Bale. Or George Clooney.) Just saying.
