Carrie Fisher’s French Bulldog Holds Vigil for Her
Published on December 27, 2016
Actress Carrie Fisher, best known for her iconic role as Princess Leia in “Star Wars,” is reportedly in stable condition in a Los Angeles hospital recovering from a “cardiac episode” during a flight from London on Friday. Fisher has been touring to promote her new memoir, “The Princess Diarist.” On Friday night, her service dog Gary, a French Bulldog, “tweeted” a photo of himself staring out a window with the caption “I’ll be waiting right here mommy.” The dog, who helps Fisher cope with her bipolar disorder, is always by her side. He became a celebrity, too, when he accompanied her on interviews promoting last year’s movie “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” On Sunday, Fisher’s mother, legendary actress Debbie Reynolds, tweeted that her daughter was in stable condition. — Read it at People Pets

Fisher’s dog, Gary, tweeted, "Saddest tweets to tweet. Mommy is gone. I love you @carrieffisher."
