Miranda Lambert's beloved senior dog, Jessi, has crossed the rainbow bridge after 13 and a half years of companionship.
The singer shared a tribute to her four-legged friend on social media this week, along with a slideshow of pictures of Jessi and the dog's brother, Waylon, who died in the fall of 2020.
Miranda found the two pups on the side of the road in Oklahoma back in 2008, in the middle of a sleet storm. The singer explains that she and her mom -- who were driving together when they encountered the siblings -- were listening to Jessie Colter's I'm Jessi Colter album at the time, which is how the two puppies got their names. Colter, of course, was Waylon's wife from 1969 until his death in 2002.
