The 21-year-old reality star suddenly lost her four-legged friend, Mr Chai, just days after bringing him home, but she has been gifted a set of the Pomeranian’s paw prints from her manager, three weeks after the dog’s death.
Sharing a snap of the gift on her Instagram Stories, she wrote:
‘Think about him every single day.
‘My heart. Our little baby Chai’s paws. I just can’t believe you managed to do this for us, the most special surprise ever’.
A note in the background read:
‘Something you can keep forever. A memory never fades’.
Molly was gifted the Pomeranian by her boxer boyfriend Tommy Fury for her 21st birthday last month, but after the dog suddenly died, the pair paid for a fast-track autopsy to understand what went wrong.
She previously explained:
‘Chai’s skull wasn’t fully developed. Part of his brain was exposed. In a tiny dog, any knock probably wasn’t very helpful.
‘Whilst we completely understand everyone’s opinions about being shipped over from Russia, what you need to understand is that is not what made him die’.
Breeder Tiffany Puppies insisted they were shocked by the death as Mr Chai was a “healthy, beautiful pup”, and said such an incident had “never happened before” because they only work with “reputable breeders”.
They said in a statement:
‘I only work with trusted people and have a small network of reputable breeders who care for their dogs to the very highest standards and see animals as part of their family.
‘I have rigorous processes in place to check animal health and the suitability of forever homes providing support and guidance for health and wellbeing throughout.
‘I have worked with dogs my entire life and this has never happened before’.
