Duff’s boyfriend, Matt Koma also had a little fun on Instagram posting a pic of him holding Lucy.
Koma captioned the pic of him holding his new friend on their sofa, saying: “I Love Lucy and she… looks fairly indifferent towards me,” referring the TV show I Love Lucy. He continued by mentioning: “I will Ricky Ricardo her heart.”
The adoption comes only a few weeks after Duff said goodbye to her little bud of 10 years, Dubois, a Bernese mountain dog, who unfortunately passed less than a month ago. The star announced the sad news via Instagram saying: “I never let myself imagine what this day would look or feel like. It was us. And we were invisible. I am having to look into your beautiful amber almond-shaped eyes and tell you goodbye today.”
Duff also included a video clip of the adorable dog, concluding her message with: “And honestly, I would take the pain of losing you 10x over to have had you forever a quarter of that time my dubie.”
Losing a pet is never easy, but we’re glad that Duff is all smiles with their new best friend, Lucy! For more information on the Love Leo Rescue, check out their website at LoveLeoRescue.Org.
