    Miranda Hart’s beloved dog Peggy has died

    The 48-year-old comedian and actress took to social media over the weekend to reveal the heartbreaking news that Peggy, who was the subject of her 2016 book ‘Peggy and Me’, has passed away


    Alongside a series of photos of herself and Peggy, Miranda wrote: “Last week I said goodbye to my beautiful, darling dog Peggy.

    “I share because I shared her with you when I wrote Peggy and Me and many of you took her to your hearts. I have always been amused by and grateful for the pictures and gifts she was showered with. She used a blanket a fan gave her in Australia until the end.

    “She was recognised more than once in public when friends walked her and once when I was walking her and the woman looked at me said “oh my goodness... is that Peggy, I can’t believe it”. And then looked at me again, when I thought I might be showered in a compliment, and she just said suspiciously “how come you get to walk her?” I proudly and with a lot of internal giggles said “I am Peggy’s owner” ! (sic)”

    Miranda went on to say she is feeling “excruciating sadness” following Peggy’s passing.

    She added: “Fellow dog owners will know the excruciating sadness of losing your loyal, loving best friend. The pain mirrors the unique joy, connection, comfort and love they bring. And Peggy was my absolute rock and source of all those things. Their uncompromising, unconditional loving presence is such an incredible gift. Enjoy your dogs as much as you can. They are great teachers. (sic)”

    And the ‘Emma’ star will be taking some time away from work in order to help her heal from her heartbreak.

    She concluded her post: “I’m using this time to take some time away from work / posting to write and rest and see what the new chapter will be.

    “Take very good gentle care of yourselves, please thank you please. Love oo.

    “Peggy - you were always by my side and always on my side. I will miss you everyday. (sic)”
