The Nashville Star alum took to Instagram to share a heartbreaking story of her beloved dog. Miranda Lambert posted a series of photos during good times with Jessi. She revealed that she recently had to say goodbye to her fur baby. Miranda adopted the dog 13 and a half years ago.
“I found her and her brother Waylon on the side of the road in Oklahoma in Jan 2008 in the middle of a sleet storm,” Miranda wrote. “They were 6 weeks old. My mom was in the truck with me and we were listening to the ‘I am Jessi Colter’ album. That’s how they got their names.”
She mourned the loss of Waylon in October 2020. Miranda is grateful to get to spend a little more time with Jessi. She revealed that the pet siblings “are reunited at the rainbow bridge.” Miranda paid her respects to her dog by playing “Storms Never Last” from the first record they both listened to in her truck.
