Doggy Deaths Make Celebrities Go Crazy

If you’ve ever had a dog you know that the expression, “Man’s best friend” is severely underrated. A dog is more than a best friend — it’s a member of the family. So it’s not surprising when the death of a pet triggers some unusual behavior.

This week Joan Rivers put down her Boston Terrier Lulu after cancer invaded her body. Lulu previously had her rear leg amputated and even underwent chemotherapy to try and stop the cancer spreading to its lungs, but nothing seemed to work. Joan was so desperate to save her pup that she claims to have tried to heal the dog herself. “When I was alone in my apartment I spent 10 minutes laying on hands the way healers do. I would touch Lulu all over and say ‘heal’ and ‘feel the heat’. I must have looked like a total loony tune.”

As Melissa Rivers told us herself, “We’ve always been animal people — my whole family”. So it’s not surprising that Joan did everything she could — including play doggy healer — to try and help her companion of 12 years.

Across the country Tatum O’Neal has blamed her recent drug bust on the death of HER dog. She recently told the New York Post, “There’s no excuse for what I did. (But) I lost my Scottish terrier, Lena. That seemed to set me off. She got old. She got cancer. She was the fabric of our family. We had to let her go to heaven. My daughter and I had to put her down. It was too horrible for words. I couldn’t get out of it. I was going to my psychiatrist. I was doing everything I could do.” Let’s hope the judge has a soft spot for pets.

So from everyone here at Ecorazzi a mournful tear and a big old Rest In Peace to Lulu Rivers and Lena O’Neal. You will be missed!

The outcry should go further than importation and should be directed at the fact that the animals in question were on their way to slaughter in the first place.
