(Newser) – Fellow dog lover Martha Stewart feels bad for Jessica Simpson, whose maltipoo was snatched by a coyote, but tells Us, “She should have watched it more closely, though. She should have been more careful.” Stewart, who lost a treasured pooch of her own in March, did have some advice for how Simpson could best move on: “Get another dog.”

“I think it's very important to get another dog, someone else to love,” Stewart continues. “You just have to find the dog that's the right match for you.” Simpson doesn’t seem quite ready for that yet, recently tweeting that she is still searching for Daisy “despite the assholes that say is it a dumb thing to do.”
