Demi Lovato Celebrates 29th Birthday by Releasing 'Melon Cake' Music Video "Every day you taught us loving each other is the most important thing in this world, and you never missed an opportunity to let your little body sink into our laps and give us kisses until we told you to finally stop.. you have had such a full, beautiful, LOVE filled life and that's why I think God knew your heart was just a little too big for this world," she added. "I know you're playing on the rainbow bridge with Bailey and Buddy right now, and there's nothing making me happier than realizing you're no longer suffering and in pain. The things you taught us we will never forget, and I promise I will continue to love others just as you loved us. Thank you for everything Bella, and have fun in your new world." Demi Lovato/Instagram Demi previously announced the death of their family's other dog Bailey in June 2019. "RIP Bailey.. we love and miss you already sweet girl," they wrote at the time. "So grateful we had so many years with you.. say hi to Buddy for me in Doggy heaven." Buddy is the Dancing with the Devil artist's pet dog who was killed in a coyote attack in July 2015. In January 2019, Demi got a tattoo in honor of Buddy on their ankle. The tattoo is of the late pup's face above "Buddy was here" in a child's handwriting. They also honored Buddy with a Christmas tree ornament in 2018.

"He was taken from us way too soon in a tragic accident, and though I will never know why this had to happen, I do know that God only puts us through situations that we can handle, so with that, together, we are staying strong."
