NEW YORK, Jan. 10 (UPI) --
U.S. actor Kevin Bacon
says Paulie, the Lab mix dog he and his wife Kyra Sedgwick
adopted in 1999, has died.
"Paulie 1999-2012. Sleep well old friend," Bacon wrote on his WhoSay Web page Monday, alongside a photo of the pooch.
People.com said the dog, who was named for a character in the movie "Rocky," had been dealing with unspecified health issues in recent months.
