Shemar Moore Reveals 'His Heart Aches' as He Mourns the Loss of His 'Best Friends for 12 Years'
Less than two months after losing his “brother,” Shemar Moore is grieving again. The actor took to Instagram some days ago to mourn the passing of his best friends.
The former “The Young & The Restless” star is quite popular with the fans, not just because he’s a brilliant actor or has the perfect body, but because he’s the sweetest dog person ever. Sadly, the two British Bulldogs that have been a part of his life for the past 12 years recently passed away within days of each other.
LOSING TWO BEST FRIENDS
Taking to Instagram on March 15, Moore, 48, posted an adorable picture of the late Shug and Moe with the inscription “Angels For Life” and opened up about how his “LOYAL and LOVING and FUNNY and FARTY” canine buddies died.
“Moe died Tuesday night at 7pm. He was tired but went out beautifully and peacefully in his sleep. Shug died this morning peacefully next to me sleeping under the dining room table with him. He had tears in his eyes yesterday and clearly missed his PARTNER IN CRIME!!!!”
A FAMILY BOND
Moore also revealed that his “BEST FRIENDS for 12 years” were like two peas in a pod and did everything together. The “SWAT” star confessed that their deaths leave his heart aching but seemed to take solace in the fact that they are now together.
“Daddy loves you both!!!!! Shuggie Boogie and Moe Diggity,” he finished, calling them by their nicknames.
The former model was so close to his dogs that he often showed them off on social media and spoke about them in several interviews. In 2014, when Shug and Moe gatecrashed his appearance on “The Arsenio Hall Show,” Moore enjoyed having the spotlight on his canine babies.
LOSING HIS "BROTHER"
Moore’s tragic loss comes less than two months after he lost his “brother” and former co-star Kristoff St. John, who was found dead at his Woodland Hills home in California on February 3.
Moore starred alongside Kristoff as his character’s half-brother on “The Young & The Restless,” and from the emotional tribute he shared following the latter’s death, the two were more than just co-workers.
Grieving the tragedy last month, Moore, an only child, said:
"I lost my brother yesterday. I've never had a brother, but you were my brother. You showed me the way. You were my mentor, my inspiration. You showed me what true talent was. You showed me what humility was. I love you. I hate this. I love you, but I'm going to celebrate all your good."
KEEPING HOPE ALIVE
In another heartbreaking tribute, the former “Criminal Minds” star promised to “never forget” Kristoff, and following Shug and Moe’s death, Moore posted a photo collage of the departed ones, calling them his “angels.”
“My heart hurts, and I will get the tears out!!! Thank you all for showing me what unconditional love, loyalty, and brotherhood feels like,” he shared in the caption. “You helped me become the man that I am today!!! Never forgotten. Always remembered and appreciated!!! I miss you!! I love you!!! I will think of you every day and smile. Enough rain. Let the sun shine.”
