Kim Kardashian’s hairstylist Jen Atkin has announced the tragic loss of her family dog Chewy after he was taken by a coyote from their Los Angeles home.

“Yesterday morning we lost our precious love Chewy to a coyote. My baby is gone. Our hearts are forever broken,” she began.
“It’s difficult to write this and we debated on sharing the video (the last slide) but we need other families to watch it.
“We didn’t have any warnings. We had never seen coyotes in our new neighborhood or found their droppings anywhere. It was broad daylight.
“We did our morning routine like we always do, Chewy having to eat first and go poop alone in private. I turned to go get River a bottle, and heard her cry out in fear and pain.
“It all took 15 seconds and we ran as fast as we could but they took her over a 7ft fence. Roo saw it all and tried to help her sister. This is traumatic. It’s devastating,” the hairstylist wrote.
“She didn’t deserve this kind of an ending. To hear your baby cry out and not be able to do anything is hell. I’ll never forget her final cry.
“An hour later Mike found her remains in an abandoned yard. We truly did all we could screaming her name and driving thru the streets in panic. She was the light and laughter of our household. Our Princess,” Jen shared.
“She got us thru the pandemic, she never left Rivers side, she taught Roo how to play and love. I sang the Cuppycake song to her everyday.
“All we ask is in the time it would take you to send condolences or flowers, please please go to our link in my bio and donate $1 , $5 anything to @wagsandwalks in our Chew Chew’s name.

“It’s all we can do -take our pain and broken hearts and try to save other shelter animals. Foster if you can. Help families who can’t afford emergency surgeries at your local animal hospitals. We are broken,” the hairstylist to Bella Hadid, Hailey Bieber, and Jennifer Lopez said.
“We will go on and laugh every day about her and miss her jumping on our heads in the morning and cuddles at night. Please watch and love your dogs even more than you already do.
“And please …don’t forget her. When you’re feeling sad watch her video of her hiding wigs in our backyard.
“We miss you our little angel Chewy. We’re so so sorry. If anyone has tips on how to grieve we are struggling here,” Jen said.
