Khloe Kardashian and Gabbana. On January 30th the star of the family reality show and author of Strong Looks Better Naked posted on Instagram about the passing of her dog Gabbana, who she nicknamed Gooby.
She shared several photos of her beautiful Black Labrador Gabbana. She inherited Gooby when Chris and Caitlyn Janner divorced in 2015 :
“Last night my sweet Gabbana passed away,” wrote Kardashian. “She was more than a pet. She was my first child, my companion and my friend. She was incredible! She made sure I was never lonely even during lonely times. The house will never be the same. I never thought I would be this devastated over loosing [sic] a dog but 14 years, is a long time together. She filled a significant role in my life and I’m forever grateful. I love you Goober!! I’ll remember you always!”
Losing a favourite member of your family is tough at any time but can be especially traumatic when you’re 7 months pregnant. It is even more important to surround yourself with people who understand that you are grieving and who will support you. Taking extra care of your health during this stressful time is vital as emotions can be especially heightened. Lots of fresh air and healthy eating, whilst this might seem obvious advice it is important not to forget to look after yourself. Dealing with loss whilst coping with all the additional emotions and stresses that being pregnant brings can feel a little overwhelming. But remember that this is perfectly normal and there is lots of support available. Mumsnet has a good support group with links to pet bereavement.
