Benny Blanco’s French Bulldog, Disco, passed away in November 2021 after being with him for over 12 years. Blanco had found a dog for sale in Kentucky, but due to hip issues with the original puppy, he instead received the runt of the litter. Named Disco in honor of a departed friend, the dog was exceptionally small when she arrived, fitting in the palm of Blanco’s hand. Disco was a constant companion in Blanco’s life, traveling with him globally and being present throughout his career. She witnessed the creation of every song and was a source of comfort during both highs and lows.
