Rapper Kid Cudi says he is a “complete mess” after losing his 11-year old bulldog, Freshie.
The famous musician shared the heartbreaking news on Instagram, posting several photos of the cute puppy, and revealing to fans the dog helped him through terrible days where he was considering “cutting” himself. Cudi included a lengthy message outlining the incredible special relationship the two of them had and offered support to anyone who has lost a pet.
“I got some sad news yall. Freshie is gone. He left us a few days ago peacefully at home surrounded by people that love him. His family. I held his hand and whispered in his ear to let him know I was there while he slipped away. I told him he was a special boy, my best friend, that he was perfect and that I loved him and I’ll miss him so so much. I felt his heart stop beating and felt his last breath. Fresh has been in my life since 2010. I got him when the producers of How To Make It In America told me my character for 2nd season would sell weed and walk dogs. I had no previous interactions w dogs prior, other than giving one a pet if my friends had one at their place. I was truly nervous around dogs and I wanted to be comfortable onset w them so it felt legit. Like i was Domingo Dean, the dog walker/weed dealer,” Cudi began.

He continued, “After I got Freshie, I was wayyy more comfortable w the dog’s onset. It worked. But at the time I had no idea I would have such a best friend in my life. He’s been here for 11 years, and my life has been one hell of a rollercoaster this whole time. Freshie was with me through it all every day. He loved me. He really did. He came up and licked me if I was crying, he loved to lay in bed w me, he was always by my side or close by.”

At this point, Cudi explained just how much the bulldog meant to his life and his health. The rapper says he considered cutting himself on a few occasions and Freshie was there to help him out of the situation. “He was my guardian angel. Nights Id want to cut myself, Id see Freshie and I couldn’t do it. He would stare at me when I would have a knife to my stomach, eyes glaring at me tellin me to put the knife down. My life will be a Lil more empty with him gone. To anyone that has lost a pet, I feel your pain. I am a complete mess. I cry at random moments of the day.”
