Christina Aguilera Has Just Suffered Heartbreaking Loss

Christina Aguilera took to Instagram last night to let her fans know she had to put her 17-year-old dog down.

Her precious Stinky was her first baby before the pop star had human babies.

In the touching social media post, Aguilera expressed her appreciation to the dog that was always by her side -- Through everything.

No doubt, her dog had quite an adventure those 17 years, especially while traveling with the music artist.

Please keep Christina in your prayers during this difficult loss.
