Travis Barker and his daughter Alabama have shared their sorrow at the death of their pet dog, a French Bulldog called Blue.
The Blink-182 drummer, 46, took to Instagram to share a photo of Blue looking up at the camera with puppy dog eyes and a broken heart emoji, as well as pictures of him kissing and cradling the pup.
He then shared a clip of him and Alabama stroking the dog as he added: ‘I’ll miss you Blue. You were the best dog. I was always waiting for you to say something. Love you 4ever boy.’
Alabama, 16, also shared a series of posts on Instagram and TikTok paying tribute to what was clearly a very loved family pet.
She shared a photo of the pair cuddling as she added: ‘I love you Blue, you will never understand how much you helped me on my darkest days.
‘You slept next to me, the way I would throw your ball and you would run with excitement, or the eyes you had that just touched everybody, I’ll never forget you my baby.
‘I know you’ll have the most amazing time up in doggy heaven, until we meet again my love.’
Alabama, who is believed to have been the primary owner of Blue, shared a series of videos and photos from when he was a puppy to the present day, including her as a child with him and the dog adorably clambering into her suitcase, as well as screaming if she didn’t instantly let him into a room.
In the final photos she shared, she could be seen holding up a chewed up tennis ball, clearly a favourite toy, as Blue looked on, with a bandage and IV line in his front paw, before Alabama planted a series of kisses on his nose.
Her heartbreaking final snap was of an orange bowtie Blue had worn in the bed next to her, with the dog no longer there.
She also posted tributes on TikTok, saying she loves the late pup ‘more than life itself’, adding: I love you my baby.
‘Your mommy loves you more then life could imagine, [you’re] going to have the most amazing life in heaven, until we meet again my son I love you more than life itself.’
Alabama is the daughter of Travis and his ex, Shanna Moakler, with the former couple also having a son, Landon, 19.
Travis recently married his third wife Kourtney Kardashian earlier this year, though she did not address the dog’s death on her own social media page.
