Olivia Wilde 'Broken' After Dog Paco Dies on Her Birthday
Olivia Wilde had a bittersweet birthday.
The actress turned 34 on Saturday, but sadly shared with her Instagram followers that her dog, Paco, died that evening. "Lost my best friend last night. Paco was a kind, wise, gentle, loving soul. I could post a thousand photos of so many adventures," she captioned a series of flashback pics of her and the pet. "These pics remind me of how peaceful he made me. My heart feels broken right now."
Wilde added, "All I can ask is that you consider adopting a pup, and loving them with all you’ve got. Here’s to all the incredible friends of Paco who’ve been so kind to him over the years. I am forever grateful."
The tribute to Paco came after Wilde posted a sweet family photo of her cozied up to 3-year-old son Otis, 1-year-old daughter Daisy and 42-year-old fiance Jason Sudeikis.
"What could I possibly ask for on this 34th birthday? Just endless health and happiness for these magical maniacs," she wrote. "Thank you thank you thank you, a million times, thank you."
While Wilde is mourning the death of her pup, Barbra Streisand recently revealed to Variety that she cloned her 14-year-old dog, Samantha, after she died last year.
"They have different personalities,” the 75-year-old entertainer said of her two Coton du Tulear pets named Miss Violet and Miss Scarlett. “I’m waiting for them to get older so I can see if they have her brown eyes and seriousness."
