Sex and the City fans are mourning the loss of Charlotte York Goldenblatt's beloved canine companion, Elizabeth Taylor.

Last week, the Sex and the City revival series, And Just Like That, premiered its first two episodes on HBO Max and revealed that Charlotte (played by Kristin Davis) is no longer the owner of the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel named after the late iconic actress.

Instead, Charlotte and her family are pet parents to a bulldog named Richard Burton — which is a clear nod to the group's former pet, as actor Richard Burton and actress Taylor starred in numerous films together and married and divorced twice.

Elizabeth Taylor, the dog, was previously introduced to fans on the original Sex and the City series in episode 16 of the show's sixth season.

The episode, which is titled "Out of the Frying Pan," aired on Jan 25, 2004.
