Fans flocked to social media to support the star during her loss.
One gushed: "Oh Stacey! I literally crying right now. Theo has shared so many wonderful memories with you. She was more than just a dog. Some would say more like a nanny . She adored the kids. & welcomed Peanut with open paws. Sending all my love. Xx".
