The precious Yorkie pup (whose name means "life" in Portuguese) has been by Gisele's side during her rise to super stardom. The stunning celeb even dressed up Vida in Dolce & Gabbana when she married hubby Tom Brady and also brought her precious pooch on their honeymoon.

Bündchen has never been shy about her affinity for rescuing animals and has even claimed she's "the biggest animal lover in the world."

So sad! It looks like this babe has a tough week ahead. RIP, Vida and best of luck to Gisele as she mourns the loss of her precious pet.
