He later revealed that Sugar has been laid to rest. “#RIPsugarsosweetfuneral arrangements made . Rest east baby thank you NonoEvents for making it more bearable, sending my pup off in a way that he would definitely loved , love you ke sweety.”
Messages of condolences have been pouring in for Moshe.
Botlhale Wise Kwele commented “My mum once had a dog, named Spoti and my family was away to a funeral for a weekend, so Friday night the dog died… I then went and threw the dog away at a local bridge… Sunday afternoon when mum returns, I told her the news, yoo, she cried, as if I killed it she told me to go and fetch her dog, she wants to bury it at home she even said, the dog is older than me, which makes it the first child here, I felt so little. Yho people with pets.”
Nobuhle Zungu commented “I also lost my Puppy this afternoon I watched him die …..I literally felt sharp pains in my heart I loved that Lil ManI never thought I could love an animal like this.”
Moshe is not the only celebrity to mourn the loss of their pet. Actress Amanda Du Pont also had to bury her little fury friend. She took to her Instagram to share the sad news and said she was heartbroken to the core.
“RIP to my baby Dior We lost her last night I am broken and have been crying all night. She was the purest soul, tap dancing and picking up a toy in her mouth every time I walk in the door. Slept by my feet always! Loved to be carried like a baby and was no stranger to the soft life. We don’t deserve the love and joy dogs bring into our lives. She loved anyone and everyone. RIP my baby Dior – Like Pop Smoke, you left us on a high like a legend!”
The actress also took the opportunity to warn pet parents not to go to Bryanston Veterinary Hospital. “She had back pain two days ago and we took her to Bryanston Veterinary Hospital to be examined. If you love your pets PLEASE DO NOT take them there you will lose them with no solid explanation or communication. All they say is that she could have had a bad reaction to the anesthesia, but they aren’t sure.”
