Bentley found out his 15-year-old dog had cancer last year
Dierks Bentley is in the midst of a pet owner’s hardest moment: saying goodbye.
The country singer lost his longtime pal and loyal dog Jake, he announced Sunday on social media.
Bentley, 40, posted a black and white photo of the 15-year-old dog on July 10, along with the caption, “Rest in peace pal.”
Jake, a shepherd mix, spent the past year battling cancer. Bentley noticed the lumps on the dog’s body last year and started taking the pup to chemotherapy sessions. Unfortunately, the treatment wasn’t enough.
Jake has been a constant companion and red carpet date, escorting his owner to award shows, events and the opening of Bentley’s exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame.
