Denise Richards is mourning an old friend.

The actress’s beloved French bulldog died on Sunday and she took to Twitter to memorialize him.

“Last night we lost our beloved Hank I will miss him dearly, 13 yrs old been there for me thru it all Best dog ever & part of our family,” she wrote, with a picture of the black pup.

The mother of three girls, and ex-wife of actor Charlie Sheen, has a large pack of cats and dogs that will comfort her during this difficult time.

Most recently, she adopted Lily, a rescue puppy displaced by Hurricane Sandy in November.
