Teddy from 90 Day Fiance’s death
Teddy became ill when he went with Big Ed to Los Angeles to do a comedy show. The adorable pup had cheered him on from the sidelines, but later that night, stopped eating his food and arthritis medicine.
Before the trip, the dog had developed cysts on the top of his head and had to undergo surgery. During their trip, Ed went on a date with a woman named Kaory in Mexico. But shortly after returning home, Teddy began panting heavily.
In a clip shared with Insider, Teddy revealed: “I kept petting him, and he just kept looking at me that night, like he knew he was going somewhere.” After dozing off for half an hour, Big Ed woke up to find that Teddy had died.
Big Ed and Teddy’s friendship
Teddy barely ever left Big Ed’s side during his life. “He was my life, he was my buddy, he went everywhere with me”, the 90 Day Fiance star spoke of his beloved pet after his death.
Ed mentioned on the TLC show that he regularly talks to his dog and couldn’t imagine life without him. His mom was also fond of little Teddy, and would often hang out with her son and his pup.
So when Teddy was no longer in his life, Big Ed described it as the “worst thing that could ever happen to you.” The well-behaved dog, a shichon, went everywhere with Ed, who is now left with a big emotional hole in his heart.
