I haven't posted for a week as I been mourning the death of my dog, Mozart who I personally delivered out of his mother's womb. He was found dead in my ranch last Friday with a shot close to his heart. I am hoping that the Washington State authorities do justice to this wonderful dog whom in 9 years never bit or attacked anyone. He loved his territory and never strayed away…he was the most loving and loyal companion. He didn't deserve a slow and painful death. #doglover #animalrights #dog #dogoftheday #rip #delivery #washingtonstateauthorities Hace una semana que no pongo nada ya que he estado de duelo por la muerte de mi perro Mozart. De quién fui la partera, lo encontramos el viernes pasado con un tiro cerca del corazón. Espero que las autoridades del estado de Washington le hagan justicia a este extraordinario perro que durante 9 años nunca mordió o atacó a nadie, adoraba su territorio y nunca se escapó. Era el compañero más leal y no se merecía una muerte lenta y dolorosa. #muerte #perro #justiciaporlosanimales

Salma Hayek was noticeably absent from social media for a few days. It turns out she’s been mourning the sudden death of her dog.

The accomplished actress told friends and fans about the horrific incident via Instagram, revealing the “loving and loyal” pup was found dead in her ranch last Friday and had suffered a gunshot wound close to his heart.

She goes on to insist he’d never bitten or attacked anyone in his life, adding he didn’t deserve a “slow and painful death” before repeating her message in Spanish.

We’re keeping Salma in out prayers at this time.
