Laura writes the following on her Twitter account about her famous partner: "It's a sad time for all of us as my great partner, Anthem, had to be euthanized this week. He's been enjoying retirement in Holland with a wonderful family who loved him as I did, but unfortunately it was his time. He was a special friend and partner. I will miss him."
