Originally, I was going to go see [some dogs] today to adopt them, but Gucci left our side yesterday afternoon.

Gucci.

Thank you for leaving us with good memories. Now, you need to go and stay at a better place. We will pray for you from here.

Originally, I was planning to adopt a mommy and daughter pair of dogs, and I was going to see them on September 24. But you left our side yesterday. Our baby Gucci…

You really left us. Every time I would go home, I cherished the time I had with you. I would pet you and kiss you, because I never knew when the next time I would be able to see you again, and if I even could see you again, especially because I can’t go home often to see you during the year. Even though I couldn’t see you much, you already turned 11 years old. I knew your health was slowly declining. I was heartbroken to hear you left our side.

You were a dog who was warm, considerate, cute, handsome, smart, and nice. You had that unique charm in your personality and as you quietly watched around us, you spent both happy and sad times with us.

I’m so glad that you were with me. Thank you, Gucci, for being with us for so many years. To us, you’re family. We will miss you. I’ll remember the sound of you walking around, wearing your bell, the sound of your barks, and your pretty, big, round eyes.

I hope you will be happy in another world. We love you Gucci, and will pray for you to be in a better place.

Gucci has been with Tzuyu since she was 10 years old, and made frequent appearances on TWICE’s social media alongside Tzuyu.

TWICE fans even went to Tzuyu’s mother’s cafe, just to get a glimpse of Gucci and Gucci’s merchandise.

Tzuyu loved her so much, that she even designed this hat with his face on it to wear while she was traveling for TWICE’s promotions, or in Korea.

Losing a pet is just like losing a family member. May Gucci rest in peace, and our prayers to Tzuyu and her family during these difficult times.
