Miranda Lambert Says “Goodbye” To Her Beloved Dog Thelma In Emotional Post

Dogs make our live whole, so when it is time for them to cross the Rainbow Bridge a part of us leaves with them.

Miranda Lambert, award-winning country music singer/songwriter, rescued two Great Pyrenees in 2016 and named them “Thelma and Louise”. The dogs were adopted in Dallas, Texas, and took a 10-hour road trip with the singer on her bus all the way to her home in Nashville to “watch over one of my happiest places on earth.”

She instantly fell in love with the pups. For the past eight years, they have protected the farm and all the animal and human residents. “The Kitties, chickens and mini horses needed to be looked after and these 2 girls have done that since the day we brought them home.”

Sadly, the time has come to say “goodbye” to Thelma. On Tuesday, Lambert wrote a heartfelt post on Instagram and shared several photos of her beloved dog. “Yesterday we had to say goodbye to our sweet Thelma. She spent her days lounging in the barn and her nights keeping watch over all of us. She lived the last 8 years with no fences, just freedom to do what she did best. Love and protect. I loved her with all my heart.”

She went on to inform fans and friends that Louise is finding comfort in her other canine siblings and human companions. “Louise has retired from her farm duties and is getting all the more love and snuggles from Delta, Bellamy, Cher , Brendan and me.”

Lambert is heartbroken. “It hurts so bad to say goodbye to these sweet companions but their love is always worth it. How lucky are we do get to have friends like Thelma. I am so proud to have been part of her story.Thank you to my friends and farm managers Julia and Tommy for taking such good care of her and everyone of my fur babies and loving them like they are your own. We all miss you Telm Telm”.

The longtime supporter of animal rescues and adopting ended the post with, “Y’all don’t forget, love a shelter pet.”

She wanted to give back and help the voiceless shelter pets, so in 2009 she founded MuttNation. Learn more about the organization here.
