George Michael’s beloved dog Abby dies two years after her owner
George Michael’s pet labrador, Abby, has died at the age of 15.
The golden Labrador was the last surviving pet of the Wham! star, leaving some fans devastated to see the end of an era.
Abby’s sibling, Meggy, passed away in 2015 before her owner.
Michael was often seen walking his dogs near his home in Highgate, north London, and referred to his two dogs as his “best friends”.
The singer’s close friend, Alex Georgiou, confirmed the sad news that Abby had passed away to Heart FM.
He told the radio station: “People came from all over the world to see her and they would wait patiently until four o’clock for her walk as to not disturb her.
“She loved people and she was so gentle.”
Both dogs were adopted as puppies in 2006 while Michael was dating his then boyfriend Kenny Goss.
Fans and friends of the late singer took to Twitter to share their sadness at the news.
