For celebrities who are always traveling, sometimes the companionship of a canine friend can be just the thing to help ease the loneliness of waking up in different cities all the time. Sadly, Jessica Simpson lost her beloved Daisy to a coyote last week, and her friends fear that it will “put her into a tailspin.” Daisy was the confidante that never shared her secrets with others, her faithful friend who would curl up next to her in bed when she was feeling lonely.
And, as any pet owner can tell you, you can’t simply replace one pet with another. No doubt she’ll be “mom” to another adorable pup one of these days, but only after she’s had time to mourn Daisy.
Last week the 5-year-old “maltipoo” disappeared from outside Simpson’s L.A. area home, apparently taken by coyotes, which are common in that area. Dog rescue hunters from a group called Find Toto went on an extensive search, but even with the help of tracking dogs, they found no sign of Daisy.
Simpson’s had a tough year, romantically, professionally, and personally. After a break-up with Dallas Cowboys’ Tony Romo, she was criticized for gaining weight and wearing frumpy jeans, and her new reality television show has met with plenty of eye-rolling. Fortunately, her friends and family have been supporting her and hoping she’ll catch a break soon.
