Our hearts are breaking for Dierks Bentley and his family after learning that the beloved Bentley pup, George, has crossed the rainbow bridge.

Dierks shared the news on his Instagram page along with several photos of the black-and-tan Dachshund. He said that he had delayed sharing the news because “Makes it feel too formal and final.” He also shared a few words that his wife, Cassidy, had written in George’s honor.

She wrote, “George. Original Gangster. Baby before babies. And after. How many nights did I collapse on the couch after taking care of 1/2/3 kids only to look down and see you glaring at me with a look that said MY TURN. You were never one to be denied your cuddle. Your Presence always yanked me out of my own head and brought me back into the moment of just you and me and your demands for affection. That was such a gift.

“King George, you wrecked so much havoc, incited so much laughter and comforted in so many difficult moments. You reigned in our house and in our hearts for 14 years and right now your absence feels like a hole the size of an entire Dachshund shaped universe. We are trying to fill that hole with gratitude and with the wildest hope that your spirit has already reunited with Jake’s in what lies beyond. -Cassidy RIP Georgey Boy”

Dierks’ fluffy white pup, Jake, who appeared in music videos, on red carpets, and at special events, died in 2016  leaving George to comfort the family. After a few months, they opened their home to a new pup, Emmylou Hoo, and then several months after that, they added a third pup to the litter, Patch Adams.

I’ve been holding off on posting about George dying. Makes it feel too formal and final… but need to let you all that knew him know that he’s gone. My wife Cassidy wrote the following: George. Original Gangster. Baby before babies. And after. How many nights did I collapse on the couch after taking care of 1/2/3 kids only to look down and see you glaring at me with a look that said MY TURN. You were never one to be denied your cuddle. Your Presence always yanked me out of my own head and brought me back into the moment of just you and me and your demands for affection. That was such a gift. King George, you wreaked so much havoc, incited so much laughter and comforted in so many difficult moments. You reigned in our house and in our hearts for 14 years and right now your absence feels like a hole the size of an entire Dachshund shaped universe. We are trying to fill that hole with gratitude and with the wildest hope that your spirit has already reunited with Jake’s in what lies beyond. -Cassidy RIP Georgey Boy
