Cynics would say that a maltipoo snatched by a hungry coyote on Monday probably wouldn’t be alive on Thursday, but Jessica Simpson isn’t giving up hope of seeing her beloved Daisy again.

“Still holding out hope despite the a–holes that say is it a dumb thing to do. Daisy is my baby … why would I stop searching? I’m a mom,” she wrote on Twitter Wednesday night.

At 8:13 p.m. Monday night, Simpson, 29, Tweeted that her dog, a maltipoo she’d owned for five years, had been taken by a coyote as she watched in Los Angeles.

“My heart is broken because a coyote took my precious Daisy right in front of our eyes. HORROR!” She Tweeted. “We are searching. Hoping. Please help!”

By Wednesday, a dog-finding service,, had been making calls to some 1,000 of her neighbors asking if they’d spotted any sign of the missing Daisy. She also created a sign offering a reward for her dog’s return.

On Tuesday night, however, she apparently took at least a one-hour break from searching and grieving.

“Everyone watch my beautiful sister be a creepy b—h on Melrose Place tonight!!!” she wrote on Twitter at 10:10 p.m. “Tune in! xo”
