Instead of fireworks, Christina Milian's Fourth of July was filled with goodbyes.
In June, Milian updated her followers on her Cane Corso's health, writing on Twitter
that she was "Chillin' in the emergency pet vet parking lot. Something's wrong w my dog SheRah so brought her in tonight."
SheRah, who loved back rubs from Milian and posing with the singer during photoshoots, did not live with the pain much longer, and succumbed to cancer this week.
"RIP My sweet Sherah," she Tweeted
on Tuesday about her beloved dog. "2 weeks ago I confided in u she was sick. Due 2 extreme pain & cancer she's now ... in Doggy heaven."
"My Family & I will miss her 4ever," she continued
. "And thru all my tears I'm happy 2 know she is ok now. A dogs love is truly unconditional."
