Social media was abuzz with condolences and reflections following the death of actress Carrie Fisher on Tuesday, but not many had as personal a connection with the "Star Wars" star as her beloved dog Gary.
On Tuesday, Gary, who has an active social media presence, @Gary_TheDog, led by an unknown moderator, tweeted news of Fisher’s death:
Saddest tweets to tweet. Mommy is gone. I love you @carrieffisher— Carrie Fisher's Dog (@Gary_TheDog) December 27, 2016
The account later tweeted a collage of photos of Gary and Fisher, who attended many public events as a duo, including appearances on "Good Morning America," on the red carpet in Hollywood and at The White Horse.
