“I arrived back in the bush last night,” the tribute continued. “Today, although the sun is shining and the torrential rain has abated, this date will forever be tinged with sadness. My dear old man, my beautiful dad, the most gentle of men, has passed away.”
Apart from announcing major things such as this, the actor seems to prefer to keep a low profile. But despite this, the actor posted an adorable post about his dog, Louis the Papillion.
He wrote, “I’m not at all a fan of dressing dogs up, but, a friend bought little Louis a @RalphLauren polo so he can match with dad,” he wrote at the time. “I think the other dogs on the farm are going to get jealous. Pretty funny.”
But now, the actor has posted a heartbreaking update about little Louis. The little dog passed away after being hit by a truck. The actor took to Twitter to express his grief.
He wrote how on the second anniversary of his father’s passing, already a sad day for the actor he experienced yet another heartbreak. The actor wrote that he held the little dog in his arms, telling him how much he was loved. They rushed him to the vet but it seemed it was too late, the dog died in the actor’s arms.
He wrote, “This is Louis the Papillion. 16 months old. Tiny, cheeky, brave. He won my heart. Unfortunately today, on the second anniversary of my father’s passing, Louis was hit by a truck. We tried to get him to the vet, but he died in my arms while I was telling him how much we loved him.”
