Awwww. Rest in peace, little Bruiser.
Actress and singer Laura Bell Bundy took to Facebook on Friday to share with fans the passing of one of her costars from her Broadway days – little Bruiser from Legally Blonde – The Musical.
Well, one of the little Bruisers anyway.
Bruiser was, according to LBB’s Facebook status, played by three different chihuahuas – Chico, Boo, and Teddy. Teddy is the one who sadly just passed away.
She had this sweet message for the sweet little guy.
‘Here we are Bruiser, Heaven.’
Today we lost one of the sweetest puppies I know, Teddy. Teddy was rescued at a young age by the amazing Broadway animal trainer, Bill Berloni. His given name was ‘Taco’ and Bill felt that was insulting so he named him ‘Teddy.’ Teddy’s first and only show was Legally Blonde where he shared stage time with Boo and Chico. That’s where I bonded with him first but then he was adopted by two of my dearest friends @paulcanaan & @peob6254 and that’s when Teddy really started to flourish. In his later days, his daddy, Patty made true life sacrifices to take care of him and gave him such incredible love. Teddy was not just a dog. Teddy was family. #rip #puppylove #bruiser #legallyblonde
Well shoot. Just look at that little face.
And now I’m sad.
