Animal-loving actress Jennifer Aniston is bracing herself for the emotional loss of her beloved dog, after reportedly discovering her pet is suffering severe health problems.
The former Friends star has kept a watchful eye on her 14-year-old Corgi-Terrier, Norman, who defied death in January (09) after wandering from her California home and narrowly escaping a car collision unharmed.
According to U.S. magazine OK!, the pooch is now suffering unrelated digestive problems, and Aniston worries his life is at serious risk.
A source says, "Norman is old and hasn't been doing well. She's terrified her best friend could soon be gone."
The actress also has a three-year-old white German shepherd, Dolly, and was candid about her bond with her family of pets after Norman's scare earlier this year.
She said: "You have to say goodbye way too soon. It's just so sad. It makes me so sad. But their love is unconditional and I love that."
