Ashley Tisdale lost her dog recently, and she penned a heartbreaking tribute to her on social media, writing “this pain is the worst pain,” amid other revelations.
Last Friday, the sun, set on the life of Ashley Tisdale's dog, Maui, and the actress took to Instagram to share memories of the time they spent together along with a touching and heartbreaking tribute.
The post featured a slide of photos and videos showing the dog with the actress and her husband, Christopher French. Describing Maui as her soulmate, Tisdale wrote that she and her late dog shared a deep connection.
“This is the worst pain.” Tisdale.
The 33-year-old actress thanked the late Maltipoo for loving her unconditionally, and not judging who she was or what she did. Tisdale wrote that there was something special between Maui, French, and her, and asked why dogs don’t get to live long; she called the deceased, the “Purest soul.”
The “Love Me and Let Me Go” star admitted that she was not ready to say goodbye as she is heartbroken, but promised to miss the late dog every day of her life.
Tisdale ended the tribute writing that although she can’t stop crying now, one day, her pain would heal and she’ll reunite with Maui whom the actress called “My Angel; My Heart.”
The singer-actress was not alone in her grief; she got a lot of condolence messages from fellow celebs like Lucy Hale, Sarah Michelle Geller, and Brant Daugherty.
Tisdale buried Maui the day after she died in a pink casket. The “Symptoms” singer had the dog for over a decade, and according to Stars Changes, the late Maltipoo was a gift from an ex-boyfriend named Jared.
In a 2018 interview, the New Jersey native said Maui got her through her 20s, always listened to her without interruption, and was there for her through every heartbreak and disappointment.
Tisdale rose to fame playing “Sharpay Evans” in the Disney movie “High School Musical;” she reprised the role twice and recently told Us Weekly that she kept the clothes her character wore from the first film.
Before finding fame, the “Merry Happy Whatever” star worked in places like Abercrombie and Fitch, where she could get an employee's discount, and she spent six months recording and writing “Symptoms.”
The actress-singer also battles anxiety and once credited the book “Attacking Anxiety and Depression” by Lucinda Barrett for helping her deal with it.
There is no doubt that Tisdale will miss Maui, but time does heal all wounds, and hopefully, the actress will move on and keep the memory of her dog alive in her heart.
