Our condolences go out to Edgewater’s Ice-T and Coco on the death of their beloved bulldog, Spartacus the Supermodel, 6, on Sunday morning after complications from knee surgery. The couple were incredible devoted to both Spartacus and his brother Maximums, who went almost everywhere with them, and they shared touching tributes on social media.

On Instagram, Coco wrote, “My heart is hurting tremendously. Today Sparty died after knee surgery complications. He was my 1st baby with Ice. There’ll never be another dog like him. Everybody that knew him thought he was very human like and so lovable.”

Ice-T wrote that he had lost his best friend.

Baby Chanel Nicole, who turns one on Monday, will surely miss her beloved doggy buddy as well.

Spartacus and Maximus even shared an adorable and popular Instagram account, with over 41,000 followers, where the voice of Maximus asked, “Who will I play with now?”

Here are some of our favorite photos of Spartacus, who will live on in their hearts and those of animal lovers everywhere.

Thats Mister Spartacus to you…….
