Dierks Bentley is still devastated after his four-legged best friend Jake passed away from cancer, but his fans have been more than supportive with their messages & tributes to Jake.
Jake had been by Dierks’ side through all of his career.
He even brought Jake onto the red carpet at award shows and to the opening of his Country Music Hall of Fame exhibit in March.
Bentley was so moved by one gift that he posted a picture of the painting to his Instagram.
A 14-year-old fan named Sydney Lawton immortalized Jake in the beautiful painting according to Taste Of Country.
Bentley is still gutted by Jake’s death in July. “It’s been rough,” he admitted to Billboard.
“I try to be conscious of all the suffering and true sadness in the world. At the same time, I can’t deny how I feel, and it’s been tough.”
“He’s been with me from my single days to getting married to all my kids coming along,” he says.
“My life’s changed and he’s made those changes with me. That will definitely be my last dog. My kids might get another dog, but I’m done.”
