Please join us in sending love to THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS star Hunter King (Summer), who is mourning the death of her dog, Dallas. Back in April, she revealed that Dallas was undergoing chemotherapy, and just last month had to begin a new program because the others weren’t quite doing the trick to battle the cancer. “There are no words,” the actress shared on Instagram. “No words to describe the love I have for you, Dallas, and no words to describe how much my heart is hurting without you by my side.
“You were my angel,” King continued. “A true gift to everyone who knew you. You brought me so much happiness, Dal. Every day with you was an absolute blessing. You were everything I hope to be as a person. Carefree, always ready for an adventure, full of life and joy, and always spreading love wherever you went. You shared your heart with so many and I feel so incredibly lucky that I got to be your momma. You were and always will be my baby.”
From the first day that her mother and her sister, Joey, surprised King with the pup at the airport, there was an inseparable bond. “I hope I brought you even a fraction of the amount of joy that you brought to me,” she declared. “You were the best dog in the entire world, and I miss you so much already. You truly have been family, Dal. You’ve been with me through so many stages of my life. From being dumped by my first boyfriend to getting engaged to the man of my dreams, you were always by my side.
“I always pictured you being there at my wedding and being there to meet my future babies, but I will always cherish the memories that we made together,” she added. “From road trips to late night snacks, you were my right hand man. It feels like a piece of my heart is missing, but I know it’s with you. My heart is broken, but I know you’re in heaven, pain-free, and enjoying all the food and toys. I’ll love you forever, my Dallas girl.”
