Barbra Streisand mourns death of ‘beloved’ pet dog

Barbra Streisand is mourning the death of her pet dog Samantha.
The Hollywood icon took to Instagram on Saturday (27May17) to announce the news and share the last photo she had taken with the Coton de Tulear.
“Jason took this pic of me holding Sammie on Mother’s Day,” Barbra captioned the photo, referring to her son Jason Gould. “This is the last time my picture was taken with my beloved girl Samantha. May she rest in peace. We cherish every moment of the 14 years we had with her. May 2003 – May 2017.”
The post has been met with kind comments from fans, with many sending Barbra, 75, their condolences and support.
Barbra has frequently shared photos her pet dog on social media, with her very first post featuring her the pooch.
The Way We Were singer also uploaded snaps of her canine companion on National Puppy Day and the dog’s birthday, as well as when they were in the recording studio together.
In 2013, Barbra also shared that Samantha joined her and husband James Brolin on roadtrips, and was a very intelligent dog.
“She’s like the daughter I never had. She speaks English. She understands English I swear to God. She’ll come up to me and go ‘mmm’ it sounds like a baby. That means she wants water,” she told The Independent. “Or she’ll just look at me with those eyes and then she wants a treat. She always comes with us. I would never leave her.”
