Kelly Osbourne puts Pomeranian pup Noodles to sleep
Kelly Osbourne has parted with another pup, putting down her Pomeranian Noodles this week for health reasons.
"[N]oodles is not going to make it. she was born with a brain defect and i have to put her to sleep today im devastated," the reality TV starlet and recent "RuPaul's Drag Race" judge said Wednesday on Twitter. "i just cant believe it."
Osbourne had taken Noodles, nickname Noody Bear, to a specialist on Tuesday after the Pom suffered a seizure. A scan revealed swelling of the dog's brain, she said later on Twitter.
Noodles was adopted in March, joining Osbourne's almost identical black Pom named Sid. After her rough split from fiance Luke Worrall last July, she'd come home from a Las Vegas trip only to learn that Woody, her then-recently acquired Pomeranian, had died.
Noodles "was not in peace her brain was swelling in her head," Osbourne told a curious fan Wednesday on Twitter. "I DON'T PLAY GOD! it was an unfortunate necessary!"
Incidentally, that curious fan, @SherryMimy, reacted Thursday after learning her exchange with Osbourne had gotten some traction online: "I can't believe I was mentioned in a website regarding a celeb !!!!! I don't know how I should feel about that." Dealing with feedback in the often-odd world of Twitter, she'd later explained the tone of her query to Osbourne, writing, "what I said was not supposed to b mean and ms. Osbourne understood that."
Indeed, after @MissKellyO's reply, @SherryMimy had expressed sympathy, saying she hoped someone was there to comfort Kelly.
