Thus far in 2016, we’ve said farewell to many music and film greats, such as David Bowie, Alan Rickman, and Glenn Frey. But 2016 has nabbed another legend from us– Elle Woods’ prized Chihuahua, Mr. Bruiser Woods, has passed away at the age of 18.

The pint-sized pup (who went by the name Moonie in real life) rose to fame after stealing the spotlight in both Legally Blonde films. Some of Bruiser’s favorite past times included wearing tiny pink hats, drinking Evian water out of a collapsible bowls, and attending Delta Nu mixers.

We’d like to take a moment to honor the tiny Gemini Vegetarian with our favorite Bruiser Woods moments.

Completely stealing the spotlight from Elle. Like, always.

He loved Elle… and we loved him.

Rest in Paw-radise, Bruiser Woods. Cinema will never be the same.
