Honey Boo Boo is having a very tough week.

The reality star's beloved dog China was recently struck by a vehicle and killed.

Honey Boo Boo's mother, June, posted a Facebook message addressing the sad death of their pet chihuahua, whose body was found this week by Honey Boo Boo's sister, Lauryn, aka Pumpkin.

"Pumpkin and your security guy went back to our house to get clothes and found your dog, China or Chi-Chi, had been recently hit and left to die, as she was still spasming as they found her," June writes on May 30 to Honey Boo Boo, whose real name is Alana.

"We think it may have been done intentionally 'cause of where she was found at," June continues.

"We rescued her 'bout six yrs ago on Craigslist," she adds. "She was an awesome dog  would lick you to death before she would bite you."

This is incredibly sad, and we can only imagine that the seven-year-old Alana must be having a tough time with it.

This comes after Alana's father collapsed and was rushed to the hospital on May 25. He was recently released.

Our thoughts are with the family during this difficult time.
