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.
