Tori Spelling's dog has died.
The 'Beverley Hills 90210' actress was left devastated after her beloved pooch Mimi LaRue passed away aged 11 on Tuesday (17.06.08).
The news comes just over a week after the actress - who is set to reprise her role as Donna Martin in the upcoming spin-off from the popular teen series '90210' - gave birth to her daughter Stella Doreen McDermott.
She said: "She was a star and a true lady, and she will be missed greatly. People everywhere knew her by name.
"I loved when fans wanted her over me. I felt proud! I'm devastated. I'm convinced she waited around to make sure I had the daughter I always dreamt about before she left us."
The well-loved pug died of natural causes. She is believed to have suffered from medical problems relating to her hips and neck for years.
Tori also has a one-year-old son Liam with her husband Dean McDermott.
