Pop star Jessica Simpson has urged fans to treasure their pets on America's Labor Day (06Sep10) to mark the first anniversary of her Daisy Mae tragedy.
The pop star's beloved Maltese terrier was snatched by a coyote outside the Simpson compound in Hollywood a year ago and Simpson is still in mourning.
In a tweet to fans, she writes, "This day last year my life changed because I lost my baby Daisy Mae - the best pup of all time... Give your dog some extra love today!"
The pet was never found, despite an extensive hunt through the neighbourhood. Simpson believes the coyote, which ran off with the pooch in its mouth, killed and ate it.
