This time last year, Kaley Cuoco mourned her beloved pet Norman after 14 years together. The Flight Attendant star said felt an "Earth-shattering deep, gut-wrenching pain," she thought impossible as she penned a farewell tribute to the mixed breed pit bull. One year later, she remembers the dog with another Instagram post, only this time, the pain isn't as raw.

"Norman, you were my entire world for 14 years. Thank you for smiling at me as you left this world, confirming for me once again, our language was ours alone. You will always have my heart," she wrote. Speaking to The L.A. Times in 2017, Cuoco said, "I wanted this dog to be in my life." Then she also spoke about Norman saving her "more ways than [she] can explain."

Immortalizing Her Pet

Before his death, Kaley collaborated with Sock Problems in 2018 to design a dog Euthanizing sock pair to help pets transition painlessly. She donated the sales from the socks to dog rescue organization Paw Works. Seeing how passionate she was, her wedding guests donated to the rescue pound as gifts when she married her now ex-husband Karl Cook.

Kaley named her production company Yes, Norman Productions to immortalize the dead pit bull. Although she had many pets at the time of Norman's death, the Big Bang Theory actress always had a closer relationship with the pit bull. That's expected, seeing as she owned the pet since she was 21.

"Norman, can't believe you have been gone a year. I'll truly miss you forever. 'A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than he loves himself,'" she wrote. The 36-year-old actress relaxes on the beach as she watches crashing waves. While posting the story on her Instagram, she captions it, "I needed this," possibly referring to a distraction from remembering her dog's passing. Hopefully, Kaley would find solace in the company of her other animals in this sad time.

What's Kaley Doing Now?

Kaley constantly posts throwbacks of their special times, some of which moved her to tears. "Thank you, @cuddleclones, for this sweet gift. It gave me so much joy when I returned home. And a few tears thinking of the boy!" she wrote.

In the meanwhile, Kaley returns to work filming the second season of her hit TV series The Flight Attendant. She announced recently that Hollywood icon Sharon Stone would join the cast this year, and fans are excitedly anticipating the new release.
