Darin Brooks, who plays Wyatt Spencer on the Bold And The Beautiful (B&B) and Kelly Kruger, who plays Mackenzie Browning on the Young And The Restless (Y&R) are in mourning. Their 15-year-old dog Charlie passed away on December 9.
“Our hearts are broken. Last night we had to say goodbye to our brave girl Charlie,” Kruger posted on Instagram on December 10. “We will miss you more than anything but know you’re not in any pain. I love you my Charles. Thank you for your unconditional love💔”
The actress also wrote about the first time she saw Charlie. She had gone into a pet store, looking for a treat for her other dog Maddy (who passed away in May) and Charlie had yelped at her.

“The owner of the pet store said that someone dropped her off after they decided they didn’t want her,” Kruger said. ” I picked her up, she nuzzled her head in my neck and stopped crying until I put her down again. I left and couldn’t stop thinking about her. Finally after going back and forth to visit her for a few days I said I had to have her.”
Charlie hit it off with Kruger’s husband immediately.
“When I met Darin, Charlie fell in love with him instantly. He’d take her on runs, they’d cuddle on the couch,” Kruger added. “She kinda became his dog. She loved going on walks and hikes and we would get up every morning and go on a walk just the 2 of us.”
