Actress Kaley Cuoco and her husband Karl Cook shared sad news on Instagram just before Thanksgiving. The couple announced that their beloved dog Petunia had died.

The couple adopted Petunia when she was already a senior. Cook shared in a post, alongside photos of the pup, “After a life of untold loneliness and hardship, she is at rest. For that, I am happy. We did what we [could], adopted Petunia to do better than anyone else, give her everything. She is resting at peace, with everyday’s sunset to warm her. That is what matters most,” Cook continued. “Petunia, it is not the amount of time together, but it’s [the] affects on the soul. You affected everyone who met you. You’re forever my old lady😭😘😍 I miss you so much already, sleep my sweet angel❤️❤️❤️.”

Cuoco spoke about Petunia on Instagram stories and mentioned Paws For Life K9 Rescue, the nonprofit that rescued Petunia and the place they adopted her from.

“We were so honored to love her in her final days,” Cuoco wrote. “We love you dear special Petunia. You are the reason we continue to save dogs just like you. And we will never stop.”

Cook and Cuoco are devoted animal lovers and initially bonded over a shared love of animals. Cuoco has spoken out against Canada’s sealing industry and has been a strong supporter of animal rights. The couple also has dogs, two horses, and a dwarf mini horse.
