Anyone who has ever owned a dog knows they are way more than just pets: They’re family. Which is why Tom Hardy’s tribute to his late dog Woody is hitting us right in the feels. And hard.
He went on to write, “Woody affected so many people in his own right so with great respect to his autonomy and as a familiar friendly face to many of you, it is with great great sadness a heavy heart that I inform you that after a very hard and short 6 month battle with an aggressive polymyostisis Woody passed away, two days ago. He was only age 6. He was Far too young to leave us and We at home are devastated by his loss … Above all I am completely gutted.”
Hardy also posted this photo compilation of his beloved pet:
The actor recalled how he found Woody as a scared little puppy on the side of the road, adding, “He was a special bro, a shiny example of man’s best friend. Thankyou Woody for choosing to find us. We will love you and be with you and you with us forever. Never ever ever forgotten. Your Boy tom xxx I love you beyond words. To the moon and back again and again to Infinity and beyond. Run with Max and the Angels. I will see you when I get there.”
Seriously, can we get a tissue?
Hardy, an (obvious) animal lover, is also a member of PETA, and helps to promote animal adoption. We’re feeling for you Tom — and we’re so sorry for your loss!
