He wrote in the caption, ‘This is a very sad day for our family. ‘Dali, our beloved Frenchman, passed away last night. He will be 12 years old next month…which I am told is a long life for this breed. I always used to call him a rockstar.

The Broadway star regularly shares puppy updates with her 30 million followers on Instagram and previously joked that her canine companions were ‘more famous’ than her.
He joked at first: ‘My dogs are more famous than me! If I post anything about my dogs, it blows up. I had just done a play and the fans were flocking to the theater – but it wasn’t for me! I was taking the puppy to the theater and the fans would say ‘When is the dog coming?’ They had come to see the puppy.’
‘They didn’t care about me! And I get it, they are more interesting than me!’ The star chuckled.
