Chrissy and her husband, John, 42, share several pets together.

The couple also raised two birds, three other dogs, one bearded dragon, and a hamster together, in addition to Pippa.

It's not the first heartbreak Chrissy has had to deal with in terms of losing a pet.

Back in March 2018, the star shared the news their oldest dog, Puddy, had died.

Alongside a series of adorable pictures of the pair spending time together, she wrote at the time: “Today our baby, Puddy, has gone on to the pup heavens.

“John and I got Puddy in our first year of dating, when I convinced him half-birthday presents were a real thing.

“10 years ago, on May 30th, I found the dog that would be there for us through every up, down, new house, new city, new tour, new travel.”

She then said: “He welcomed new pups and loved on new babies and new bellies. “He was there for everything. Every time I needed a taste tester, someone to kiss or needed to sob into his stinky rolls, he was there. It’s true what they say.

“We are their entire lives and it is the greatest shame that they can only bless us with a short spark of time in ours.

“I always knew I would lose a piece of me when he left us. I feel the hole now."

The 35-year-old continued: "I will love you forever, my boy. My heart aches. Thank you so much for everything, everything."
