Dan + Shay’s Dan Smyers and his wife Abby celebrate their wedding anniversary today (5/13) but it’s been a sad day, as their rescue dog Missy passed away yesterday (5/12).
Dan posted to his Instagram last night, “Our hearts are broken to share the news that sweet missy/tiny/little one has passed away. We knew when we adopted her at age 16 with terminal cancer that our time together would be limited, but it’s still never easy saying goodbye to a loved one. She was safe in our arms as she left us peacefully, and for that we are grateful. Can’t say enough about the grace and patience of my superhero wife @abbysmyers for dedicating every waking minute to this sweet girl: from hand-feeding each meal, to giving her all the happy days in the sun.”
He added, “And our dogs Joy, Chief, Ghost, and Mac for welcoming her into the pack with open paws. Missy, we love you and you’ll always hold a special place in our hearts. May all your days be sunny, and your little tail never stop wagging. And to all of you who have so kindly followed her story, thank you. someone once said, ‘dogs lives are too short. their only fault, really.’ Truer words have never been spoken.”
