This ^^ is a photo of Lady Gaga last year, carrying her then-new puppy Fozzi while on her Born This Way Tour. I don’t know what happened to this puppy. Is Fozzi still around? Is this puppy the second coming of Mercy Kardashian? I have no idea. I haven’t seen Fozzi in more than a year and I’m kind of worried. I thought at first that Fozzi was the same puppy being referenced in the following story, but maybe not? It seems that Gaga is in mourning for her childhood dog Alice:
Lady Gaga is mourning the loss of a family member.
The “Applause” singer, 27, stepped out in London Wednesday wearing funeral attire to pay tribute to her dog Alice, who passed away at 17.
“My puppy Alice died. We had to put her down, cancer ate away at a little angel. My daddy is so sad, we all are, lost a member of our family,” she wrote late on Tuesday.
Looking somber and donning an elaborate face mask that covered her eyes as she left a London hotel, she said that it was tough being abroad during this difficult time.
“I love being an entertainer but it is so painful sometimes to be away from home 17 years she held on, so many memories. Nothing beats family,” added Gaga, who’s promoting her upcoming album, Artpop.
Her dog had been by her side through her rise to stardom and everything in between. “I remember her laying [in] my bed, she knew when I was sad, or when I was sick. I should have been there,” she wrote. “I just pray Alice found her wonderland.”
I had a English setter (my childhood dog) who lived to be 17 years old too. He was a good dog – he was a paranoid wanderer, playful and sweet-natured. His last year was hard though, but I couldn’t convince my dad to put him down. So the setter died at home and everyone cried. Ugh, I meant to write this as some kind of shade at Gaga for Mercy Kardashian-ing a pet who was no longer “cute” and “photogenic” but I get the feeling that Gaga’s parents were the ones taking care of this dog, and it’s not a Mercy Kardashian situation.
Here’s Gaga “in mourning”:
