Tori Spelling has just welcomed a new addition into her family, her newborn daughter. Yet she lost another one too. The actress and mother of two is mourning the death of her beloved pet dog Mimi LaRue, just a week after she gave birth to baby daughter Stella into the world.
The pooch, who set a trademark with her pink dresses both on the red carpet and on Tori's reality shows, "So noTORIous, Tori & Dean: Inn Love," and the new season of "Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood," died from natural causes on Tuesday, June 17 at age 11. LaRue, according to Tori, had suffered from hip and neck problems for years. She died at the family's home, surrounded by Tori, hubby Dean McDermott, their son Liam and daughter Stella.
To People Tori shared her feeling, telling the publication, "She was a star and a true lady, and she will be missed greatly. People everywhere knew her by name. I loved when fans wanted her over me. I felt proud!" She continued saying, "I'm devastated. I'm convinced she waited around to make sure I had the daughter I always dreamt about before she left us."
Remembered LaRue as "a true member of the family .... a loving pet and a true diva to the end," Tori has revealed to E! News that she and the family "are planning a small memorial service for her with our close friends" and will place her body in a pink casket.
