Though it was always pretty safe to assume that Twitter user @ isn’t really Carrie Fisher’s beloved Frenchie pawing away at a keyboard, now we know for certain.
We also know that “Carrie Fisher’s Dog” is just a fan account not connected to the family because whoever’s been running it cleared things up once and for all.
“I should say that this account is not affiliated with anyone inside the family,” wrote @Gary_TheDog, who’s now up to 67,000 followers, Wednesday night.

As for the real Gary Fisher, the French bulldog that was always at Fisher’s side, he will be taken care of by Billie Lourd, Carrie’s 24-year-old daughter, TMZ reported Wednesday. Apparently Lourd, the Scream Queens star who appeared with her mother in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, has a Frenchie of her own, named Tina and the two are longtime best doggy friends.
Fisher died Tuesday at age 60 after suffering a heart attack on a flight from London to LAX a few days prior. Her mother, Hollywood megastar Debbie Reynolds, died the following day after what appeared to be a stroke. She was 84.
