His missus subsequently thanked Twitter followers for their condolences over the sad news.

"I so deeply appreciate the kind words about Paulie," she tweeted.

The couple's best friend had been suffering from health problems the last few months, including a bum leg that Kevin revealed his pooch was sufferering from in a WhoSay post back in November.

"My man Paulie home from the hospital," he wrote, along with a picture posted of Paulie with a bandaged hind leg.

The celebrity couple adopted the barker from a vet and he'd been in the family ever since.
