“Clerks” director Kevin Smith is one funny guy, but showed off his sensitive side on Wednesday.
Smith posted a sad tribute to his beloved dog of 17 years, Mulder, who passed away yesterday.
Dog lovers mourn the loss of our furry children just as we do the death of a family member. Most of us can relate to how Smith is feeling.
The 44-year-old filmmaker and actor posted a message on Facebook Wednesday morning telling his fans that his 17-year-old dog, Mulder, was dying.
Kevin said, “As I’ve spent the last year carrying him around like Hodor” (referring to a character from Game of Thrones), “I’m not taking this terribly well”.
The director continues, “They never tell you when you get a dog, but there is a price to pay for being the recipient of 17 years of unconditional love, loyalty and companionship: they take a huge chunk of your heart with them when they go.”
He later added, “Mulder was beyond worth it. F***, this hurts…”
At around 1 p.m., Smith updated his followers that his fur baby had passed away.
He said, “He’s gone. RIP Mulder, my Buddy-Man. Thank you for 17 years of sheer joy and affection. It took a dog like you to make me a better person”.
The moving tribute touched the hearts of Smith’s followers, who expressed their condolences for his loss.
We send our condolences and well-wishes to Kevin and his family.
