The Bachelorette fans heard from Shawn Booth on Instagram, that his beloved dog, Tucker passed away. His tear-jerking announcement got friends, so-stars, and fans in tears. Tucker spent over 11 years as Shawn’s companion and naturally, he felt heartbroken. Many people responded and one of those was his ex- Kaitlyn Bristowe.
The Bachelorette –Shawn Booth’s dog Tucker died in his arms
TV Shows Ace reported that Shawn ended his tribute to Tucker with a very sad quote. He said on Instagram, “If love could have saved you, you would have lived forever.” Actually, the rest of his post talked about his terribly heavy heart as Tucker passed away in his arms. But, he explained that it was in his backyard. So hopefully, Tucker felt comforted there, in the arms of his dad at home. Many fans and friends sent their condolences and one of those was Kaitlyn, his ex from the ABC show.
The Bachelorette fans probably recall that the couple appeared in season 11 of the show. They were engaged but broke it off in November 2018, US Weekly reminded readers. Actually, in our article on Tucker’s passing, we mentioned that Kaitlyn once said Tucker held them together to a certain extent. So obviously, she also had a soft spot for the elderly dog. It’s not known what Kaitlyn may have said to her ex privately, but she shared a short note on his Instagram.
Kaitlyn’s message abut Tucker reaches out to Shawn, her ex
One of the first to comment on the death of Tucker, Kailtyn wrote, “I’m so sorry. This one hurts. You gave him a great life.” Probably, she hurt almost as much as Shawn. They lived together for three years before the breakup, so she knew Tucker very well. The sorrow of his death brings to mind the sadness of the breakup. Back in May 2019, Kaitlyn spoke on the LadyGang Sunday show. According to Kaitlyn, Shawn broke it off with her. For some reason, “He didn’t know why he couldn’t love me,” she noted.
Kaitlyn felt that somehow the pressure of The Bachelorette show made it hard for him. Kaitlyn moved on and dated Jason Tartick. Fans may recall him from Becca Kufrin’s season. At the time, Shawn felt it indicated his belief that they weren’t right for each other. So, just because she reached out to him over Tucker, doesn’t mean they’re likely to rush back into each other’s arms. In the meantime, apparently Shawn’s not dating seriously and focuses on his fitness levels.

With the heaviest heart I’ve ever had, I wanted to let you guys know that I lost my best friend today. Tucker passed peacefully in my arms and in the comfort of our backyard. I poured every ounce of my heart into him and he gave me his entire heart right back. I’ve never loved anything more and he was the best boy I could ever ask for. I was the luckiest person in the world to have him by my side for 11+ years. I already miss him so much. . “If love could have saved you, you would have lived forever ..”
