No matter who you are, losing a dog can be one of the hardest things in the world. Even famous celebrities grieve for their late pets.

Recently, X-Files star David Duchovny said goodbye to his beloved rescue dog Brick — and wrote a beautiful poem as tribute.

Duchovny, 63, adopted his dog Brick in 2015, and the dog has been a favorite among the actor’s fans — Brick even had his own Instagram page.

Brick was found as a stray off a Los Angeles freeway in 2015 by rescuer Philip Steir, according to a post from Earth Animal. While searching for a new home for the dog, he got a call from Duchovny, who said that “he wanted him ASAP.”

The Californication star named the dog Brick in honor of former New York Jets offensive tackle D’Brickashaw Ferguson. Brick went from living on the streets to living in a mansion in Malibu with his celebrity owner.
