This is just so sad! While it can’t compare to the pain of losing their son Jett last year, John Travolta and wife Kelly Preston are being forced to deal with yet another tragedy in the family after losing two of their beloved pets.

Kelly Preston and John Travolta’s dogs were reportedly killed in a terrible freak accident at the Bangor, Maine airport last week. According to a press statement released by airport director Rebecca Hupp, the two puppies were accidently run over while being walked after a flight.

“At approximately 1 a.m. on Thursday, May 13, 2010, an airplane carrying members of the John Travolta family landed at BIA. While there, two small dogs were taken for a walk by someone who is not a family member,” Hupp said in the statement.

“An airport service pickup truck was approaching the airplane to service the plane and did not see the dogs. Unfortunately, the dogs were struck and killed. The airport is investigating the accident. Out of respect for the family’s privacy, the city will make no further comment.”

We would be crushed if anything happened to our ‘babies’ – we know John and Kelly must be heartbroken!
