John Legend and Chrissy Teigen have shared the sad news that their French bulldog Pippa has died at the age of 10.

John took to Instagram to share pictures of their late pooch and reminisce about life on the road with her.

“We’re going to miss our little Pippa,” John shared. "This pic is her living her best life: on the road with her dad, wearing pearls. We got her near Gainesville FL so I gave her my best impression of a southern accent whenever I spoke for her.”

Chrissy shared this sweet snap with Pippa

In January 2020 the pair welcomed another pup into their family after adopting a rescue puppy named Petey.

The two shared some seriously cute photos of their children Luna and Miles helping him settle into his new home. But after Chrissy uploaded a picture on Instagram of Luna cuddling Petey as he slept on the sofa, she admitted in the caption that she had messed up as her puppy was yet to sleep in its crate.

Fans were quick to share their opinions on whether or not Petey should be sleeping in one, with one writing: "They don't need one," while another posted: "I've never crated any of my dogs. And neither have they ever had any accident in the house."
