Actor Russell Crowe took to Twitter to share the heartbreaking news that his beloved pet dog, Louis, died in his arms after being hit by a truck. Crowe's tweet included a photo of the 16-month-old Papillon, whom he described as "tiny, cheeky, brave" and who had won his heart. The tragedy occurred on March 30, which also marked the two-year anniversary of the death of Crowe's father. The actor said that he and his family tried to rush Louis to the vet, but the pup passed away on the way while they were expressing their love for him.
During a recent appearance on the Australian radio show "Kyle & Jackie O Show," Crowe opened up about the impact of losing Louis, saying that his family was "a little devastated" and that the loss would take time to overcome. He also said that Louis had become an important part of their lives and had "wrapped" them around him.
He was such a beautiful little pup, and he kind of wrapped us around him and we shaped our lives around him. So that's going to take a little time to get past.
Crowe's famous friends and colleagues shared their condolences on Twitter, with some expressing their sympathy and love for the actor and his family.
The loss of a pet can be a devastating experience for any pet owner, and celebrities are no exception. In fact, studies show that the bond between pets and their owners is incredibly strong and can be just as important as human-to-human relationships. The death of a pet can cause intense grief and sadness, which can last for a long time. It is important to take time to grieve and remember the joy that the pet brought to one's life.
