Pregnant Mandy Moore Mourns the Unexpected Loss of Her Beloved Dog | 22 Words

Mandy Moore has paid tribute to her beloved dog, Joni, in the most beautiful of ways...

 

Now, Mandy Moore is a woman of many talents.

A singer, songwriter, actress, and voice actress. The woman can do anything and, more importantly, she can do it well.

She's won a Golden Globe, an Emmy, and 2 Screen Actors Guild Awards.

Back in 2019, the actress was even awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Moore has starred in many well-known classics: The Princess Diaries, Chasing Liberty, Saved!, Racing Stripes, Because I Said So, 47 Meters Down, The Darkest Minds, and Midway.

She even voiced Princess Rapunzel in the Disney animated fantasy musical comedy film, Tangled.

And of course, we can't forget her part in A Walk to Remember.

She played the character so well.

And, earlier this year, almost twenty years later, she gave us a highly-anticipated updated version.

Trust me, this performance will give you goosebumps.

The actress blessed us with an updated rendition from the comfort of her home.

Sat alongside her husband, who played the guitar, Mandy gave us a concert we weren't going to forget.

And after a few songs to get warmed up, she gave us what we all wanted...

"This is a song I've sung one time almost twenty years ago. I think I've sung it once in concert in the Philippines not that long after [and] I sang it once to record it," she said.

"This has been requested a lot and I'm going to try my best to make it work."

She then gave us the most beautiful version of the song we have ever heard.

Here's the full video, folks.

Does anyone need a tissue, because I've got some spare just in case...

But that isn't the only time we've need a tissue this year because of Mandy Moore.

As, in September, she made us sob with the heartwarming news that she was expecting her first child.

Moore shared her exciting news with the world by posting it on Instagram...

Writing: "Baby Boy Goldsmith coming early 2021."

Alongside 3 pictures of her and her husband, Taylor Goldsmith, holding her bump, of course.

Adorable!

However, despite all the excitement this year has brought for Moore and her family...

Yesterday, she shared some heartbreaking news.

Her beloved dog had passed away.

The star shared the devastating news on Instagram, posting a host of pictures of her furry friend, Joni.

Alongside she wrote, "Last night, very unexpectedly, we lost our Joni girl."

"Yes, she was almost 13. Yes, she had pretty major surgery a week ago to remove a mass on her liver but she was recovering really well."

Paying tribute to her 4-legged companion, she wrote:

"Until last night. I knew something was amiss when she, lifelong food-obsessed, didn’t finish her dinner and couldn’t get comfortable in bed (despite being on pain meds). My mama intuition told me to bring her in and I’m glad we did. I saw her puppy mug online way back in early 2008 and drove down to San Diego to meet her at @thebarkinglotrescue and was instantly smitten. I’ll never forget the drive home, telling her that it was just us against the world now."

"To know her, was to love her. She never met a stranger. She was waaaaay more human (or muppet) than dog. She loved ANYTHING she could eat, even if sometimes it was gross (cat poop). Seriously, she was a vacuum. She loved her brother Jackson."

"She loved lying in the sun to catch some zzzzs. She adored @taylordawesgoldsmith. She tolerated her cats brother and sisters. She loved to give very stinky kisses. And I have no doubt she knew what an absolutely indispensable part of our lives and cherished soul she was... right until the end."

"My heart is utterly shattered. She was my first love and best friend. Through every twist and turn of life of this past decade and change, she was right there."

"There’s a deep chasm of emptiness that will never be filled but I am so grateful for her sweet nature and the endless connection, compassion, responsibility, patience and devotion that the love of a pet can bring into your orbit. When mulling over the details of her surgery last week, my husband sorta joked that everything would have to be run by me because I’d had Joni for 13 years and only had him for 5."

"He’s right. She was the boss and a total mama’s girl. I’m so sad she won’t get the chance to meet her human brother soon but maybe she wasn’t ready to share. Or be a suction cup right by my side every night."

"I will love and miss you forever, my Joni. Thank you for beyond a lifetime of love."

How devastating for her.
