James Marsden Mourns Passing of Beloved Family Dog Buddy

James Marsden has announced the death of his family dog Buddy.

The 44-year-old Hairspray actor took to his Instagram on Tuesday (February 16) to pay tribute to his beloved dog while sharing a slideshow of photos with Buddy.

He was love. He was healing. He was the center of our little universe and our best friend,” James wrote. “Rest In Peace, our sweet Buddy, and we will meet again. ❤️”

Along with the photos of Buddy, James also shared throwback photos of his older kids Jack, now 20, and Mary, 15, with their beloved dog.

Over on his own Instagram, Jack paid tribute to Buddy with a sweet post.

“This is buddy, my first dog. When I was 8 I wanted a dog for Christmas because I was ready to take on that responsibility,” Jack wrote. “I just hoped that I was going to have a deep connection with him, and that he would feel the same way. And he did. Since the day he came into my life to the day he said goodbye, him and I grew up together, laughed together, played together, held each other, talked to each other, and much more.”

“I appreciate you more than I can even think of, and I thank you for all that you’ve done for me,” Jack continued. “I’ll never have another dog to take your place, because in the end, you were never truly just a dog. You were my best friend. I love you, I miss you, you’re always with me in my dreams and in my heart. And I will see you again❤️”

Our thoughts are with James Marsden and his family during this difficult time.
