It’s a heart-wrenching decision every pet owner dreads, and Jared Leto faced it this week.

“Had to put my dog to sleep tonight. His name was SKY,” the Thirty Seconds to Mars rocker Tweeted late on Wednesday. “He was the best.”

Sky had been a part of Leto’s family for several years. Leto’s brother and bandmate, Shannon Leto, took to Twitter to mourn his dog.
