Kaley Cuoco is grieving the loss of her beloved dog, Norman.
On Saturday (January 16), the model took to social media to share the “earth-shattering” news that her pet pit bull has passed away. Cuoco made the emotional announcement on Instagram, where the 35-year-old shared a pair of touching black-and-white photos of what appeared to be a teary-eyed Cuoco spending her final moments with Norman.
“💔 earth shattering deep gut wrenching pain I didn’t know was possible,” the Big Bang Theory alum started her message. “Norman, you were my entire world for 14 years. Thank you for smiling at me as you left this world, confirming for me once again our language was ours alone. You will always have my heart. 💔”
Friends and fans showered Cuoco with messages of love and condolences over the loss of her four-legged friend.
“Oh Kaley, I’m so sorry. You two were the best team ♥️♥️” commented Awkward alum Molly Tarlov.
Beverley Mitchell wrote, “I am so sorry!!!! @kaleycuoco sending you all the love!!!!”
The Practice star Marla Sokoloff also offered her condolences, writing, “Oh Kaley, I am so deeply sorry. Just in tears reading this news. Sweet Norman. 💔 sending you love.”
As Cuoco followers know, Norman made a number of appearances on her Instagram page over the years. In November 2018, the 8 Simple Rules alum regarded her dog as her “main man,” revealing that Norman had “saved me in more ways than I can explain.”
Sadly, this is the second pet Cuoco has lost in her household, as her husband Karl Cook announced the passing of their rescue dog, Petunia, this past November shortly after adopting her earlier in 2020 from Paws for Life K9 Rescue.
