In an emotional post, the 42-year-old wrote:

This guy passed away today. Thank you to everyone who has sent so many goodies, doggy treats, toys, clothes, paintings, stuffed animals, and everything else over the years. He loved being famous and getting recognized, especially without me. So many people loved him, and i really appreciate that and so did he. My favorite memory of Chunk is when I was paddle boarding on the Hudson River in upstate NY and he was following me on the shoreline by the trees, and finally jumped in and swam a quarter of a mile to get on my paddle board with me. I cried that day at how much he loved me. And, today I’m crying because of how much I loved him. My chunky monkey. I love you, baby. Softest doggy in the world. 💛❤️💛a true gentleman.A post shared by Chelsea Handler (@chelseahandler) on Jan 18, 2018 at 1:09pm PST

She also tweeted:

Additionally, the fluff master’s Twitter page had this to say of the news:

Chunk was nine-years-old when the author rescued him from a kill shelter back in 2009. He was a German Shepherd-Chow mix.
It’s sad enough on its own, but even sadder when you remember she lost her other dog, Tammy, back in August. What a hard time this must be.
Rest in peace, Chunk. We hope you, Tammy, and Chelsea meet again one day.
