Seth Rogen and his wife Lauren Miller took to Instagram on Monday to mourn the death of their almost 14-year-old dog Zelda who the couple adopted in 2011. The Super Mario Bros. star described his Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, who passed away on May 4, as a “magical creature.”
She taught us about love, resilience, strength and kindness. We loved her more than words can describe. Everyone who met her saw what a unique little puppy she was. She’d stare in to your soul with her gigantic buggy eyes. She was so judgmental, that when she loved you, you really knew you earned it, and it made you feel like you had won.Instagram post
Seth reflected how Zelda had lived an incredible life, and starting out as a rescue puppy that seemed too shy to ever have been adopted, she became a pooch who traveled to many countries, appeared in movies, on two magazine covers and inspired “Zelda art.”
And let’s all remember Zelda’s special attributes, Seth added:
Her big eyeballs and her intense eye contactInstagram
—How it feels when she stretches while I’m holding her in my arms
—How she comes inside before she’s done pooing, takes a treat and then runs to the door when she realizes she has to poo more
—The sound she made for Zankou chicken.
—The way the fur on her legs looks like culottes from the back
—Her leave me alone side eye
—The way she would sit and wait to be called to walk through the metal detectors at the airport and then she’d run through them and everyone would comment about what a good girl she was
—How she always wants to sleep in Seth’s spot
—When she would go to the door pretending to have to go out, but just wanted to get us away from our food, although she would never actually go for it
—Her big gigantic poops that always surprised people because of her small size
—The way she loved sprinting up and down hotel hallways
—How she’d ask Seth to take her outside over and over again just for treats
—The way she pounced on seaweed and her paws left tracks in the sand. And then she’d “kill it” and ask to take it home.
—How incredible it felt to wake up in the morning and see her starrinG back at me.
And yes, we all have a special list of peculiar little tricks and traits our loyal and loved friends shared we us, and yes, we all know that awful feeling in our hearts when we have to say goodbye.
We are all so very sorry for your loss Seth and Lauren. The love we share for our dogs is just indescribable. Rest in peace Zelda and don’t forget to say hi to Aspen, Nikki and Chandhi for this writer at the Rainbow Bridge. They were all so special and loved by me throughout my life.
