Jennifer Anniston recently joined hands with her ex-husband, Justin Theroux, to say goodbye to their beloved dog, Dolly.
The couple got engaged in 2012 and tied the knot in August 2015. However, after two and a half years of marriage, the two best friends decided to part ways. According to the pair, they’re “two best friends who have decided to part ways as a couple, but look forward to continuing our cherished friendship.”
Dolly was originally owned by Anniston for about a decade when she got married to Theroux – she adopted her back in 2006. The white shepherd was also present at their wedding festivities and got spiffed up by Spa Dog. However, after the divorce, the two shared custody of their beloved pupper.
The Friends star came together with her ex-husband, to say goodbye to their dog in a spiritual ceremony. Anniston and Theroux held hands as they spent their last moments with Dolly. The dog was covered with petals colorful and wrapped up in the warm, white blanket.
The 47-year-old actor posted heartbreaking pictures of the ceremony on Instagram. He wrote, “Tonight, at sunset, after a heroic struggle… our most loyal family member and protector, Dolly A. laid down her sword and shield. She was surrounded by her entire family. The one that never deserts, the one that never proves ungrateful… is the dog— faithful and true, even in death – George Graham Vest. Rest In Peace Dolly. #adoptdontshop #rescuedog.”
