Justin Bieber has lost a friend.
The singer shared on Instagram Thursday that his beloved dog, Sammy, had passed away.
"R.I.P Sammy you were the best puppy ever," he wrote, with a picture of his much younger, shaggy-haired self holding the small pooch in his lap.
Canada's CTV News reported that the pup, who lived with Bieber's grandparents, was a comfort to the star when he moved in 2009.
