Zendaya Coleman mourning dog

Zendaya Coleman has been left devastated by the death of her dog.

The 'Replay' singer's childhood pet pooch Midnight passed away yesterday (26.10.15) and the 19-year-old star is thankful to have experienced the hound's "unconditional" love and support.

She wrote on Instagram alongside a picture of her canine pal: "My baby went to heaven today. Thank you for being one of the most loyal men in my life, for loving me unconditionally and for cuddling me when ever I needed.

"I don't know if you ever understood me when I told you but I love you more than you'll ever know. We've been together since I was 8 and I'm not really sure how to get use to a house without your cute paws clinking around....but thank you for every second of love you gave us.

"Give Poppi a kiss for me up there."

Zendaya's mother Claire Stoermer revealed on Sunday (25.10.15) the dog had been ill but was hoping he would recover.

She tweeted: "prayers up for my big baby midnight...he's in the hospital but I'm hoping he will come home to us! (sic)"

She then sadly revealed yesterday: "said goodbye 2 my baby Midnight...11 years of unconditional [heart] is broken but I know he's at peace (sic)"
