Kevin Connolly Mourning for Furry Best Friend


Kevin Connolly


The 'Entourage' star directly postponed the rest of his trip in Mexico and flew back to Los Angeles after being informed that his dog Bossy was dead.

"Entourage" star Kevin Connolly has been left devastated by the death of his beloved dog. The actor's mixed-breed pooch, Bossy, suffered a fatal stroke in early August while Connolly was on vacation in Mexico.

The pet's loss was even more poignant for Connolly because Bossy had provided some much-needed companionship when his mother Eileen died from cancer in 2009, reports the National Enquirer. A close pal tells the tabloid, "Kevin is absolutely devastated. Bossy was his best friend and helped him get through his mother's death last year."

"He was in Cabo San Lucas when a friend called with the bad news. Kevin immediately canceled the rest of his trip and flew back to Los Angeles... He's taking Bossy's death so hard. He just can't seem to come to terms with it."

Connolly adopted his furry friend from a shelter and named the dog after his childhood ice hockey hero Mike Bossy.

    It's not the least bit unusual for someone to be hard hit by the death of a beloved animal companion. Any such death will also trigger remembered feelings of previous losses, in this case of Mr. Connolly's mother's passing. While writing my book "Good Grief: Finding Peace After Pet Loss," I repeatedly heard that people found it harder to overcome the death of a pet than that of a human. This is no doubt partly because of our sometimes 24/7 contact with our pets, the unconditional nature of their love for us (and ours for them), and the fact that our society on the whole withholds permission for us to openly grieve the loss of what they deem "just a pet." My sympathies are with Mr. Connolly at this painful time.
