LEWIS Hamilton’s dog Coco died in his arms last night after a heart attack at home.
The Formula 1 king was devastated as he tried to revive his adorable six-year-old friend after “his little heart gave in.”
Lewis revealed that his beloved sweetheart died at home around 9 pm Thursday evening “with the family by his side”.
The 35-year-old race driver thinks it was a heart attack and desperately tried to revive it.
Speaking to Instagram, he told his 16.8 million followers: “Last night around 9:00 p.m., my beautiful baby girl Coco died at home with the family by her side.
“Her little heart gave way, we think it was a heart attack.
“I tried to revive it but it was useless. “
Lewis was comforted that Coco “had the best day” and was “happier than I have seen her in a long time” before her sudden death.
He continued, “She was such a special bitch, born with so many problems and I feel so fortunate to have adopted her.
“Her breeder said she was going to have to shoot him because she couldn’t afford everything she needed to survive, she went through a lot to become the bouncy and lazy dog that she was.
“On its last day, we shared a special moment playing together that I will never forget.
“She will miss me snoring and how happy she was always to see me.
“She was only 6 years old, healthy and happy.
“Naturally, my heart is broken but I hope she is in a better place with my aunt Diane. I wanted to share with you and thank those of you who loved her, who cared for her. ”
Lewis has kept two British Bulldogs and while Hamilton jets around the world to run for Mercedes, his companion dogs Roscoe and Coco stayed in Los Angeles before accompanying him for downtime.
