The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip Ex-Wives Club star shared a series of sweet photos of her dog on social media after his death, explaining her family came together to say goodbye to him on 8:30 a.m. local time.

"Goodnight sweet boy," Judge, 54, wrote on Instagram "We had 13 amazing years with big boy Bronx. Our lives will never be the same without you buddy. Rest In Paradise 🐶 #alldogsgotoheaven."

"You'll forever be apart of our family and in our hearts forever," she added, on Twitter.

Judge had first alerted her followers to Bronx's ailing health on Sunday, posting to Twitter a picture of the pooch lying on a bed.

"It's not been an easy day today," Judge wrote. "Our big boy Bronx is in so much pain and it's time to let him go and be in peace."

She followed by sharing other photos of Bronx through the years, including one of him as a puppy. He spent one last night with his favorite Spider-Man blanket, she said.
