Kristen Bell mourns the loss of her dog Barbara.
The 40-year-old Good Place star announced on Friday that she and her family were saying goodbye to their beloved pooch after Barbara fell ill with an intestinal infection.
"Our gorgeous @barbarabiscuits got sick this weekend. The vet diagnosed Giardia and it looked like Barb was going to get away for a while," she began in a series of posts on her Instagram stories. "Even though Barb is a (beautiful) fighter, she's gotten septic and her small body doesn't look like it'll pull through."
"On the way to saying goodbye now," wrote Bell alongside an emotional selfie. "We tried to remain super grateful as the queen she is for the 2 years we had to pamper her."

The actress also thanked The Dog Cafe in Los Angeles for "bringing her into our lives" before sharing some photos from the veterinary clinic.
In one shot, Bell's daughter can be seen petting Barbara while the puppy is connected with pipes. Another picture showed the mother of two, Lincoln (7½) and Delta (5½) sharing with husband Dax Shepard, face to face with their canine companion.
"We love you, Barbara," said Bell.
Giardia is a microscopic parasite that, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, causes a diarrheal disease known as giardiasis. Both humans and animals can get giardiasis.

Bell has adopted several dogs in the past few years.
In 2017, the Veronica Mars alum told about her numerous furry friends, telling PEOPLE, "I was certainly a lazy mom to my pets, but never a bad mom."
"I treated all of my dogs like my children," she quipped. "To me, they're just children I didn't give birth to."
Bell, an animal rescue attorney, also said she firmly believes "don't buy" when it comes to welcoming more pets into her home.
"There are so many wonderful pets in shelters across the country ready to find a home," she said. "If they are not adopted, they will be euthanized. So it just doesn't make sense for me to breed more animals."
