After 14 months with an adorable puppy, the Today show anchors had to say goodbye to Wrangler the Yellow Labrador Retriever.
The anchors welcomed Wrangler into their lives (and set) when he was just 8 weeks old, making him the youngest member of the Today show in its history. Matt Lauer, Savannah Guthrie, Carson Daly, Tamron Hall and Al Roker bid him a teary goodbye Thursday, wishing him well on the next step of his journey with Guiding Eyes for the Blind.
Over the past year Wrangler has become a Today show staple, hanging out with the anchors and meeting celebrities, including Anne Hathaway, Chrissy Teigen, Dakota Johnson, Cookie Monster and Salma Hayek. The NBC hosts replayed footage of Wrangler getting down and dirty onset with all his new friends.
"Wrangler and I are dating," Teigen joked when she first got to play with him.
Footage of Wrangler's "firsts" also played, including his first time climbing the stairs, his first birthday and even his first snow. We're not tearing up...you are!
