Jhong Hilario paid tribute to Paris, his dog of 15 years, after she passed away last July 11.

In an Instagram post on July 12, the It's Showtime host shared photos of him hugging Paris tight as he looks and smiles at her, as well as one where they're cuddling in bed.

"Maraming salamat sa pagmamahal at pagsama sa amin ng 15 years Paris," the television host said. "No more pain... We will miss you my baby... Run free... I love you so much..."

Hilario didn't give details about the cause of death.

His longtime partner Maia Azores also honored her "sweet Ate Paris" in another post, sharing more photos of their late pet.

"You have never failed me all these years until yesterday, when you had to say goodbye," Azores said, as she thanked Paris for the "12 wonderful years."

"You have been with us through so many moments in our lives," she continued. "Thank you for all the days it was just the two of us home alone. You kept me company and slept beside me."

Azores recalled how they were supposed to lose Paris in 2021 due to a ruptured spleen and how she begged Paris to "stay," especially since she was also about to give birth to her daughter, Sarina.

"I just couldn't imagine going through this new chapter in our lives without you beside us," she said.

"Thank you for being the most accepting, loving, understanding and most patient 'Ate' to Sarina," Azores said, adding Sarina "will surely miss having an Ate to make kulit."

"May you have all the steak you want and a lot of sunshine up there!" she said. "No one can ever replace you in our hearts. You will be missed sorely. We love you so much."

Through Sarina's Instagram account, the couple also shared more photos of Paris, which was seemingly guarding her.

"My one and only Ate Paris. Thank you for always looking out for me and giving me the chance to spend time with you. I will miss you so much," the account's post read.
