Carrie Underwood is mourning the loss of her beloved rat terrier, Ace.
The country superstar and eight-time GRAMMY Award winner took to social media on Monday, April 4, to reveal the sad news to fans.
“Last night my sweet Ace left this world…he will forever live on in our hearts and be forever missed,” Underwood wrote. ”He was there for me when I was on my own trying to figure out life when it was at its craziest!”
She went on to explain that Ace, who was a rescue dog, has been through thick and thin with Underwood and her family.
”He was with me through 3 houses, 6 tours and 2 kids…always ready to snuggle and play…through all the highs and lows,” she added. ”He was a true friend and a good boy till the very end. I love you, sweet Ace…see you on the other side…💔”

The late pup played an important role in various milestone moments throughout Underwood’s life, including escorting her down the aisle during her and husband, Mike Fisher’s, wedding.
“He’ll be one of the ring bearers – he’s like my kid,” Underwood told PEOPLE in July 2010. “Ace is such a big part of my life.”

In addition to partaking in her and Fisher’s special day, Ace also helped the “Ghost Story” singer announce her first pregnancy.
Underwood is also a dog mom to Penny Jean and Zero.
The news comes just one day after Underwood took home her eighth GRAMMY Award.
On Sunday evening (Apr. 3), the Oklahoma native, who was nominated for two awards, won Best Roots Gospel Album for her faith-based project, My Savior, at the 64th Annual GRAMMY Awards.
The mother of two and wife of Mike Fisher also performed during the star-studded awards show, where she delivered the haunting live debut of her latest single, “Ghost Story.”
Sporting a purple mini-dress that fluttered in the stage fan’s breeze, Underwood captivated as she performed the song for the first time ever.
Surrounded by larger-than-life video screens depicting a ghostly figure of Underwood, the hitmaker stunned with her powerhouse vocals and commanding stage presence alongside a six-piece all-female choir.
