Tori Spelling's Doggy Demise

Sometimes I can't believe this is my job.

Okay, most of the time.

It is my duty to report that Tori Spelling's beloved puppy, Mimi LaRue, has gone to doggy heaven.

"She was a star and a true lady, and she will be missed greatly," Tori told "People everywhere knew her by name. I loved when fans wanted her over me. I felt proud!"

The 11-year-old pug died of natural causes, in her house, surrounded by all of her family -- Tori, Dean McDermott, Liam, and new baby girl, Stella, who is less than two weeks old.

 "I'm devastated," Tori said. "I'm convinced she waited around to make sure I had the daughter I always dreamt about before she left us."

Tori's trusted companion was a staple in her life and was seen just about everywhere Tori was. "She was not just a dog but a fashion icon and legend amongst Hollywood dogs," The 90210-er said of her pal. "She received fan e-mail on a regular basis, and I often joked she got sent more designer clothes than me!"

"She was a loving pet and a true diva to the end."

Our hearts are with Tori and her fam -- it's obvious how much she loved that pup.
