It's so hard losing a member of your family, especially a furry friend.
"We are absolutely heartbroken to be writing this but Wilmer and I are devastated to inform you that we lost our little angel Buddy last Sunday. He was taken from us way too soon in a tragic accident and though I will never know why this had to happen, I do know that God only puts us through situations that we can handle so with that, together we are staying strong."
Our hearts are breaking for the pop star and her boyfriend, Wilmer Valderrama. But, the 22-year-old added that their loved ones are helping them through this tough time:
"We have incredible people around us and so much love and support which is holding us up in this time of need. Buddy was loved by so many people and as small as he was, he made a huge impact in our lives. He truly was human in a way and we were so blessed to have him in our lives."
Demi got Buddy as a gift last year, and shared this sweet snap when he entered her life:

We aren't sure what exactly happened to the poor pup, but the singer would like her fans and the media to respect her privacy while she mourns the loss of her beautiful boy.
Our hearts go out to Demi and Wilmer while they cope with this sad loss.
