Megastar Amitabh Bachchan's belovedpet dog, Shanouk, died today after a brief illness. Bachchan, 70, loved to spend time with his Piranha Dane dog, one of the world's tallest dog breeds. Shanouk means a gentle warm breeze on a cold morning and was named by actor's son Abhishek.

" 'The gentle warm breeze on a cold morning'... Just stopped. Shanouk my pet Pirahna Dane passed away a short while ago..." posted Bachchan. Bachchan had been quite distressed with his pet's deteriorating condition and posted on his blog, "The other distressing news that I was wanting to comment on Twitter was that Shanouk is very very ill. Shanouk is, as you know my lovely Pirana Dane".

"His heart is giving way, water is collecting in his stomach and he is in serious condition. We revived him today at the vet by sedating him and pumping out the excess water collected, but things are not looking good! Sad!." Shanouk once featured on a magazine cover with his famous master.
