Kaley Cuoco is saying goodbye to a beloved family member.

In June 2023, The Big Bang Theory star announced she and partner Tom Pelphrey expanded their family by welcoming an older rescue pup named King months earlier. Along the way, he experienced a number of ups-and-downs with his health, including ingesting two foxtail grass awns that went close to his heart. Sadly, less than a year after Kaley brought King home, she posted a series of selfies with him to announce he passed away on Instagram.

"There are no words to describe our dearest little Kingy," she emotionally wrote on February 1. "He was the first dog @tommypelphrey and I rescued together and honestly the most special. I saw him online shaking in a shelter in Atlanta while I was away in Germany, and asked the shelter to hold him because we just had to have him. A month later we were in Atlanta for Tom’s work, and we spent an entire day driving hours to go pick up King. It was ♥️!"

"What started as a 6 pound, skinny, wouldn’t drink water, fur less, scared dog, turned into a chubby, hilarious, side plopping, eye kissing part of our family," she added. "All I know is Kingy gave us the most joy over the last year in a half and we could not love him more... He has left his paw print on our family’s hearts forever 🐾."

When fans learned Kaley was mourning the loss of her pup, they immediately flocked to the comments to share words of condolences.

"So so sorry and sending ya’ll heaps of love ❤️," one person wrote on Instagram. "Norman and Dumpy were waiting for him at the rainbow bridge ❤️ 🌈," another replied, referencing Kaley's other late dogs, Norman and Dump Truck."He left the world feeling loved. That's all the matters. 😢," a different follower added.

We're sending all our love to Kaley during this difficult time.
