Yesterday, the world lost legendary actress, writer generally amazing person, Carrie Fisher at the age of 60. During the mourning that occurred worldwide, Twitter users had one question — what would happen to Fisher's beloved French Bulldog, Gary?
The Star Wars actress credited her pup with helping her cope with her bipolar disorder, and Gary has been posting many tributes to his "mommy" since she passed away in the early hours of yesterday morning.
But there is some good news to come out of all of this, because TMZ has learned from family friends that Fisher's daughter, Billie Lourd, will take custody of the French Bulldog.
Gary will live alongside Lourd's own French Bulldog named Tina, and judging by social media, the two won't have any problems getting along.
A family source told TMZ that Carrie always wanted Billie to take Gary if something happened to her and confirmed that the pup was by Carrie's side on the plane from London to Los Angeles when Carrie suffered a heart attack and got to visit her in the hospital.
Gary seems pretty happy with the news.
Dear Billie, I like a bacon flavor everything. https://t.co/cxeRWQpgBi— Carrie Fisher's Dog (@Gary_TheDog) December 28, 2016
