Howard Stern and Beth Ostrosky Stern lost their beloved 10-year-old pet bulldog Bianca yesterday named partially after friends Rebecca, John and Jerry. They adopted her two years after they began dating, in 2002.
As a proud mother of two cats and one that I’m still not convinced is a feline (he may possibly be a small brown bulldog) and the former owner of two golden retrievers, I understand that losing your pets is one of the hardest things in life.
This is especially true for those of us who have chosen to not have children. Ostrosky, spokeswoman for North Shore Animal League, Tweeted, “We lost our precious Bianca today. My sweet little girl, may you rest in peace. I love you forever.”
Howard Retweeted the message from his wife and told fans, “Tough day today my friends. Thanks to all for all the kind messages. Give your dog a hug for me tonight.”
In February, the couple got matching “Bianca” tattoos on their arms.
