Bloomingdale's 59th Street celebrates Mix Masters with Law Roach & Lauren Jauregui

Lauren Jauregui celebrated a rather bittersweet victory for her late dog.

The Fifth Harmony alum paid tribute to her pooch, Gracie, who recently passed away from what the singer described as a "freak accident" just days before winning the iHeartRadio Music Award for Cutest Musician’s Pet on Thursday night (March 14).

After accepting the award on Gracie's behalf, the 22-year-old took to Instagram to share a touching video reel in honor of her beloved pup. "Congratulations to my cutest, loveliest pet," the artist starts her post. "Thank you @iheartawards and to you, the incredible fans for loving Gracie as fiercely as we do."

"I’ve put off writing this or even thinking about it too hard, but I feel like there’s no better day than today for celebrating the beautiful exuberant life that was my little Gracie. I say this with the heaviest heart you can imagine," the "More Than That" vocalist continued. "Our angel was taken from us incredibly too soon a few days ago due to a freak accident that caused breathing complications we couldn’t fix. I can’t begin to express the heartache that we feel, nor the joy that this little being of light brought to my life for the short but beautifully abundant time we had together in this world."

Despite reminiscing on the precious moment she spent with Gracie, Jauregui says she's finding peace wiht knowing "her essence is with me forever and at a frequency of love we can’t even conceptualize down here."

Congratulations to my cutest, loveliest pet. Thank you @iheartawards and to you, the incredible fans for loving Gracie as fiercely as we do. I’ve put off writing this or even thinking about it too hard, but I feel like there’s no better day than today for celebrating the beautiful exuberant life that was my little Gracie. I say this with the heaviest heart you can imagine. Our angel was taken from us incredibly too soon a few days ago due to a freak accident that caused breathing complications we couldn’t fix. I can’t begin to express the heartache that we feel, nor the joy that this little being of light brought to my life for the short but beautifully abundant time we had together in this world. I will never forget the way she side eyed me on the regular, her golden, graceful, playful, sassy personality, her comforting delicious cuddles, the way she grunted and huffed whenever she was annoyed with me, the way she looked at me in the morning with more love than I can understand but always reflected, the way she was always SUCH a good girl it was unbelievable. My heart yearns to feel her licks across my face but I know her essence is with me forever and at a frequency of love we can’t even conceptualize down here. I pray that’s where she must belong because my heart can’t fathom why the universe would take her so quickly. I appreciate your respect and love during this time of deep mourning. Im sorry I haven’t been as active but it’s just not really in my soul to be right now. Thank you for all of your beautiful well wishes upon my forever angel, Gracie, I love you always my little mami.
