Miranda Lambert shared some sad news on Instagram earlier.

She had to say goodbye to her beloved dog Thelma yesterday, after eight years with her. I’m sure a lot of us know the pain of losing a pet, and really, it just freaking sucks.

Miranda adopted two Great Pyrenees dogs, which she fittingly named Thelma and Louise, to watch over what she called one of her “happiest places on earth,” her farm outside of Nashville, back in 2016.

She added that she fell in love with them when they rode on her bus for the first time on a 10 hour trek from Dallas to Nashville, where they’ve been ever since.

She shared some of the sadness she’s feeling now having to put her down, along with some of their happy times and some sweet photos with Thelma over the years:

“May 1, 2016 I adopted 2 beautiful Great Pyrenees named Thelma and Louise to watch over one of my happiest places on earth. My farm outside of Nashville. The Kitties, chickens and mini horses needed to be looked after and these 2 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. 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. Louise has retired from her farm duties and is getting all the more love and snuggles from Delta, Bellamy, Cher, Brendan and me. It hurts so bad to say goodbye to these sweet companions but their love is always worth it. How lucky are we do get to have friends like Thelma. I am so proud to have been part of her story.

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.”

Miranda also thanked her farm managers Julia and Tommy for taking such good care of Thelma over the years, and says Louise is now retired from farm duties, getting all the love from Miranda and her husband, Brendan, along with their other dogs and animals:
