TikToker Melissa has captured more than 2 million followers with her adorable Jack Russell pup BabyGirl. And now just months after her first post in June, she had to let all BabyGirl’s fans know she has passed away. In a heart wrenching video, she shows her cradling her baby while saying goodbye. There can’t be a dry eye in the house watching the sadness unfold. The bottom of the video reads, “BabyGirl, March 26, 2014, August 29, 2022” and Christina Perri’s version of “You Are My Sunshine” is heard playing.

Most of the TikTok videos show BabyGirl enjoying the pool. But there are a few videos that show another side to the sweet pup. She also liked shopping at Target, getting her nails painted, beach trips, watching TV and napping.
