Brittany Aldean is shouldering two significant losses in her life after her 94-year-old grandmother and dog both died. In a post to Instagram, the soon-to-be-mother of two paid tribute to the loves of her life, with a photo that read “Heaven must be beautiful because it has you.”
“This past Saturday, heaven gained two of the most amazing angels…My grandmother and my dog, Bentley (Mr B). This isn’t something I’d usually share on social media, but I know many of y’all have come to love Mr B. especially because he was such a major part of my life and in so many of my pictures,” she wrote. “He truly was the best dog, my first born, my little chunky companion since I was 19 years old…there will never be another like him💔😔 Where there were dog bowls and beds, now there are only memories of that sweet little ‘toof’ and loud snores💙.”
She continued, “And as for my grandma, those who knew her all say the same thing… she was so feisty, sweet and funny, even at 94😌 Man oh man was she a favorite in our family. They are both missed oh so much😔Thanks for the kind words and support… it helps heal these broken hearts. Xo.”
The loss comes just one week after Brittany wished her grandmother a happy birthday, noting that she was going for a surprise visit.
Fans have also kept up with Bentley, after the family revealed he was battling cancer in early 2017 and were treating him with chemotherapy. During that time, the family also adopted a French Bulldog puppy named Boss and have a Pomeranian named Mia.
While the losses are devastating, the family has brighter days ahead with a new baby on the way. The couple recently shared that their family would be expanding later this year after undergoing IVF treatment.
