Anyone who has lost a dog knows what David Price is going through.
The Red Sox pitcher announced on Twitter that his beloved French bulldog, Astro, has passed away.
I knew this day was coming sooner rather than later but it still hurts the same. Astro took his last nap today and we will miss him dearly! Thank you to everyone who always checked in on him and asked me how he was doing! 😔😔 pic.twitter.com/MabUKSlh3j

Anyone who followed Price on social media knew the pitcher and Astro, named for the dog on "The Jetsons", were inseparable. He goes back to Price's days with the Tampa Bay Rays and followed him to Detroit, Toronto and eventually Boston.

The then-6-year-old Astro was featured in an MLB ad with Price at Fenway.
#THIS is David Price. And this is his dog, Astro.
