The Instagram post, which was accompanied by a picture of her 16-year-old retriever, read: ‘Goodbye Kiss 💔 Frangelica “Nanni” Moore Hart. 2002-2018. Rest in sunshine pretty girl. Thanks for waiting for me to get home’.

A string of tragedies

The singer is well-known for her forthright support of animal rights and her love of dogs, but her canine losses have sadly been regular in recent years. In 2013 she and her husband Carey Hart publicly mourned the loss of their puppy ‘Foxy Mamma’, and just six months prior the couple was forced to come to terms with the death of their bulldog Elvis (a gift from Priscilla Presley) after it drowned in a swimming pool.

Almost half a million well-wishers have since added their voice to Pink’s post outlining the loss of her furry friend. Celebrities and fans alike added their own words of comfort, and most were keen to talk about the loss of their own beloved cats and dogs.

Singer Brandi Carlile wrote: ‘There’s not much tougher than that. Thinking about you and sending love’.

Perhaps Pink can take some solace from the fact that she was able at least to have been with Frangelica when the dog died. Some research shows that animals are aware of their impending death, and it would undoubtedly have comforted Frangelica not to have been alone in her last moments.
