Miranda Hart taking career break after death of her beloved dog Peggy

Miranda Hart is taking a break from her career and social media after the death of her beloved dog Peggy.

The 48-year-old comedian has opened up about the ‘excruciating sadness’ she is feeling after losing her ‘loyal, loving best friend’ – whom she bought in 2007 and inspired her 2016 memoir Peggy and Me – last week.

Sharing a number of heartwarming photos with her furry friend, she wrote: ‘Last week I said goodbye to my beautiful, darling dog Peggy.

‘I share because I shared her with you when I wrote Peggy and Me and many of you took her to your hearts. I have always been amused by and grateful for the pictures and gifts she was showered with. She used a blanket a fan gave her in Australia until the end.’

Miranda admitted the ‘pain’ she is feeling now ‘mirrors the unique joy’ she shared with Peggy, and confirmed plans to take a step back from the public eye.

She continued: ‘Fellow dog owners will know the excruciating sadness of losing your loyal, loving best friend. The pain mirrors the unique joy, connection, comfort and love they bring. And Peggy was my absolute rock and source of all those things.

‘Their uncompromising, unconditional loving presence is such an incredible gift. Enjoy your dogs as much as you can. They are great teachers.

‘I’m using this time to take some time away from work / posting to write and rest and see what the new chapter will be. (sic)’

The Miranda star also referenced her self-titled sitcom’s lead character as she left one final message to her fans and pet.

She added: ‘Take very good gentle care of yourselves, please thank you please. Love oo.

‘Peggy – you were always by my side and always on my side. I will miss you everyday.’

And she recalled a brilliant moment she was kept grounded when a passer-by recognised Peggy rather than her famous owner while they were out for a stroll.

She wrote: ‘She was recognised more than once in public when friends walked her and once when I was walking her and the woman looked at me said “oh my goodness… is that Peggy, I can’t believe it”.

‘And then looked at me again, when I thought I might be showered in a compliment, and she just said suspiciously “how come you get to walk her?” I proudly and with a lot of internal giggles said “I am Peggy’s owner” ! (sic)’
