Khloe Kardashian has revealed that the Kardashian family’s beloved pet Gabbana has passed away.
The black Labrador was a long-time member of the Kardashian clan, and regularly featured on their E! reality series.
Taking to Instagram, Khloe revealed the heartbreaking news with a series of photos of her and Gabbana.
“Last night my sweet Gabbana passed away,” she wrote. “She was more than a pet. She was my first child, my companion and my friend. She was incredible! She made sure I was never lonely even during lonely times.”
“The house will never be the same. I never thought I would be this devastated over losing a dog but 14 years, is a long time together.
“She filled a significant role in my life and I’m forever grateful. I love you Goober!! I’ll remember you always!”
The Kardashians adopted Gabbana 14 years ago as a puppy, and also adopted her companion Dolce, who was sadly killed by a coyote a few years ago.
Although Gabbana was originally the ‘family dog’, Khloe took Gabbana in when her mother Kris Jenner and her former step-dad Bruce Jenner, now known as Caitlyn, split up.
Writing previously on her website KhloeWithAK.com, Khloe said, “When my mom and Bruce separated, I was immediately like, ‘Let me take Gabbana!'”
“She was the family dog, and since Kendall and Kylie both moved out, I thought Gabbana was lonely. I wanted her to have a fun home again!!!”
Khloe’s sister Kendall also took to Instagram to pay tribute to Gabbana.
“I’ll miss your kisses forever Gooby,” she wrote. “I know you’re up there swimming, little fishy.”
