Honky and Tonky
Around Christmas in 2010. Reese Witherspoon adopted two miniature donkeys Honky and Tonky. Miniature donkeys, also known as donks, are generally docile and friendly but that doesn’t stop them from growing to about 225 to 350 pounds in size. The friendly giants also happen to live 30 years so you’re looking at a serious commitment. However, that hasn’t stopped Witherspoon from adding them to her miniature farm. Last we heard her backyard consists of two pigs, three goats, 20 chickens, one horse, and a bunch of dogs.
Reese Witherspoon had a beloved French bulldog named Pepper, who sadly passed away in October 2020 after battling cancer for months. She posted a tribute to Pepper on her Instagram, saying “Our sweet Pepper passed away yesterday. My goodness, she was such a loyal and devoted family member. I am so heart broken, but I am also deeply grateful for all the love and comfort she brought our family. Now she’s in dog heaven where all great pets go. Chasing tennis balls, running through open fields of wild flowers and being the Queen that she is. That’s what I believe. 🎾🌸 👑 We will always love you, Pepper.”
Nash was Reese Witherspoon’s German Shepherd who passed away in April 2019. She posted a tribute to Nash on Instagram, saying “Rest In Peace, Our Sweet dog, Nash 😥🙏🏻Hope you are running through gorgeous fields of grass and eating all the treats you want in Dog Heaven.”
