“With a sad heart, I have to let all the #LegallyBlonde fans know that Bruiser Woods (also known as Moonie) passed away yesterday,” Witherspoon wrote on Instagram.

“He was a sweet little Chihuahua who was very loved. I will never forget all the days we spent together ... I’m sure his tail is wagging in the sky. Sending love to his trainer, the wonderful @tailsticks #RIPBruiser.”

Moonie was a rescue dog before shooting to fame in the movie as the pampered pup, who was always dressed in pink.
