Zelda, Seth Rogen and Lauren Miller’s beloved Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, passed away on May 4, 2023, three months shy of her 14th birthday. Rogen shared the sad news on Instagram with a heartfelt tribute.
We said goodbye to our perfect girl Zelda on Thursday, May 4th. She was almost 14 years old. She was truly the most special, magical creature. She taught us about love, resilience, strength and kindness. We loved her more than words can describe. Over the years, Rogen always mentions Zelda and often posts about her, so any fan of Rogen knows Zelda and the love they shared. The same goes for his celebrity friends, with many of them commenting with their condolences.@sethrogen, Instagram, May 2023
Iconic dog mom Paris Hilton, who tragically lost Diamond Baby, her Teacup Chihuahua, in September 2022, commented “🥺😢 So sorry for your loss💔”. Dog moms Natasha Lyonne and Christina Ricci both commented with black heart emojis. The Office’s Mindy Kaling commented, “Zelda was the best. So sorry to hear this”. Fellow comedians Bert Kreischer said, “So sorry for your loss”, Ike Barinholtz said, “One of the all time greats ❤️”, and Billy Eichner said, “❤️❤️❤️”. Mythic Quest co-creator Megan Ganz left “😢❤️” and Quinta Brunson left “❤️”. Actress Busy Philipps commented, “Oh no you guys. I’m so sorry.”
Zelda was a constant in Rogen and Miller’s lives. They were often photographed together, from beach days to movie sets to flying around the world.
Zelda made an appearance in Rogen’s films The Interview and This is the End, and appeared on two magazine covers.
Rogen has also made art, clothing, and accessories in tribute to Zelda.
