Hilary Duff posts an emotional Instagram tribute to her late BFF

Hilary Duff is having a tough week after losing a very important member of her family.

Duff is feeling a sadness to which many of us can relate: the grief over the loss of a pet. She announced that her sweet little dog, Frenchie Beau, died earlier this week, and our hearts truly go out to her.

"It's really true that we never know what the day will bring us," she wrote. "I am shattered in a million pieces today because my baby Frenchie Beau has gone to doggy heaven this afternoon :( I'm sure I will post way too many pictures of him this week but as of now I can't even bear to look at a photo of his little face that melted me every time. I can't fathom never holding his heavy little head in my hands with his two big eyes looking at me again.

"Remember every day to be grateful for what we have that makes our hearts happy and full," she finished. "My naughty boy I will miss you so. Heart. Broken."
