Los Angeles: Reese Witherspoon is mourning the loss of her "Legally Blonde" chihuahua co-star Moonie. The dog starred alongside Witherspoon as Bruiser Woods in the 2001 film. He passed away on Thursday at the age of 18.
"With a sad heart, I have to let all the #LegallyBlonde fans know that Bruiser Woods (also known as Moonie) passed away yesterday," Witherspoon wrote on Instagram.
"He was a sweet little Chihuahua who was very loved. I will never forget all the days we spent together ... I'm sure his tail is wagging in the sky. Sending love to his trainer, the wonderful @tailsticks #RIPBruiser."
Moonie was a rescue dog before shooting to fame in the movie as the pampered pup, who was always dressed in pink.
He reunited with Witherspoon, 39, in 2010 when she was honoured with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and during her acceptance speech, the 'Walk The Line' star made sure to give her furry friend a special shout out and thank him for attending.
