Miranda Lambert’s Dog Passes Away

Miranda Lambert really can’t seem to catch a break. After losing her father-in-law (Blake Shelton‘s dad) just a few weeks ago, Lambert was then saddened by the loss of a longtime friend, who was killed in a tragic car accident. Today, the ‘Baggage Claim’ songstress shared with her fans that one of her dogs, Dixie, has also died.

“My best friend, father in law and now my dog Dixie. My dog died thursday. My parents just told me,” Lambert posted to her Twitter page on Friday. “Headed now to bury my friend of 20 years.” Later, she added another sad note, tweeting, “I hope what they say is right. ‘What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger’” and thanked her 600,000 Twitter followers for their prayers and well wishes.

We anticipate that Lambert is headed to her hometown of Lindale, Texas to see her old friend one last time and say goodbye. Both she and Shelton are expected to appear at this Sunday’s Super Bowl in Indianapolis, Ind., where they will perform a duet of ‘America the Beautiful’ just before the big game.

Though the year has been rough on her so far, we hope that Lambert’s 2012 starts to look up soon.
