Gavin Rossdale is unfortunately starting the new year off on a heartbreaking note.

The Bush frontman, 58, is mourning the difficult loss of his beloved Pomeranian, Chewy McGregor Rossdale, who died after 12 years as the singer's loyal companion.

Fans of the London-native know just how strong of a bond he had with his beloved pup, and were quick to shower him with support after he shared the tragic news.

Gavin took to Instagram on Saturday and honored Chewy's life in a heartfelt tribute, sharing a video montage of him and Chewy through the years.

Set to Bush's 2023 song "Nowhere To Go But Everywhere," the video montage included photos of Chewy always by his dad's side, whether it was while touring, for shopping trips to Target, on stage, on airplanes with his kids, on boat days, and more.

In his tribute, Gavin first said: "This is the last post I ever wanted to write. So regretfully…" before adding: "We buried Chewy today. We lost him suddenly a few days ago. It's been a rough few days."

He continued: "Me and the fam are pretty heartbroken," and noted: "The house feels different, all his spots are vacant and the floor has no life."
