Taiwanese singer-actress Selina Jen has always been open about her love for her pet dog, Pinky.
In a 2018 interview, she once revealed that she wanted to leave her entire inheritance to her dog in the event that she passes before Pinky does. When she turned 36 in 2017, one of her birthday wishes was for Pinky to stay healthy and be with her for a few more years.
However, it was reported earlier this year that Pinky, who is 15, had to be hospitalised due to health issues.
On Wednesday (March 13), Selina’s mother posted a picture of Pinky getting a blood transfusion. Later that day, she uploaded another post, with the words, “Pinky just passed away in her mother (Selina)’s arms.”
Selina’s manager later confirmed the news, and shared that Selina was very affected by Pinky’s passing.
Fellow S.H.E member, Taiwanese singer-actress Hebe Tien also posted on Facebook later that day. “(Your) family’s all here, and the weather was good. Pinky, you really did well. We’ve bid farewell to you, another reminder that the days of our youth that we so cherish is leaving.”
She also uploaded a picture of the sky, writing, “(As) the sun rises and sets, (as) the days pass, thank you for coming into (our lives), it was really nice to have known you.”
