Miranda Lambert mourns the loss of her beloved dog, Thelma

Miranda Lambert announced the death of her beloved dog, Thelma, in a post on Instagram, sharing a series of throwback pictures of her and husband Brendan McLoughlin, with Thelma and their other dogs.

Lanmbert shared a lengthy tribute to her late pup, who died on July 24, 2023, recalling the day she adopted Thelma and her other Great Pyrenees Louise. She wrote about how the companions looked after and protected her farm, located on the outskirts of Nashville, Tennessee: 🌈💕May 1, 2016, I adopted [two] beautiful Great Pyrenees named Thelma and Louise to watch over one of my happiest places on earth. My farm outside of Nashville,” Lambert, 39, shared alongside a slideshow of snapshots and a video, which includes Thelma with Louise on the sprawling property. “The Kitties, chickens, and mini horses needed to be looked after, and these [two] girls have done that since the day we brought them home. They rode on my bus all the way from Dallas to Nashville, and on that 10-hour drive, I fell in love with them. Yesterday we had to say goodbye to our sweet Thelma.”

Lambert added that she knew Thelmas lived a good life: “She spent her days lounging in the barn and her nights keeping watch over all of us. She lived the last 8 years with no fences, just freedom to do what she did best. Love and protect. I loved her with all my heart.” Lambert also shared that Louise has “retired from her farm duties and is getting all the more love and snuggles” from her and Brendan, as well as their other dogs Delta, Bellamy and Cher: “It hurts so bad to say goodbye to these sweet companions but their love is always worth it. How lucky are we do [sic] get to have friends like Thelma. I am so proud to have been part of her story.”

Her tribute was summed up with Lambert saying “thank you to my friends and farm managers Julia and Tommy for taking such good care of her and everyone of my fur babies and loving them like they are your own. We all miss you Telm Telm. Y’all don’t forget, love a shelter pet.”
