Louise Redknapp has told fans she is ‘heartbroken’ after her dog Corky has died.
The singer, 45, took to Instagram with the sad news, as she paid tribute to her beloved pooch with a series of cute photos of her cuddling up to Corky at home.
One snap saw her sat on her doorstep, puckering up to six-year-old rescue dog Corky as she fussed over him.
Louise told fans: ‘I’m so heartbroken to have to share with you that we lost our gorgeous boy Corky yesterday.
‘I’m gonna miss the howling when there is someone coming in the house, the drool on the floor when there is food around and the big cuddles on the sofa.’
Thanking the dog rescue foundation where she first got Corky from, Louise added: ‘Thank you @wild_at_heart_foundation for bringing him in to our lives we adored him from the moment we got him. We will miss you so much sleep tight our beautiful boy love you forever ? xxx.’
Louise also has two other rescue dogs Rudi and Blu and all three feature heavily on an Instagram page she has set up especially for her pooches.
Sharing another tribute to Corky on her dog account, Louise wrote: ‘We’re so sad to let all our lovely followers know that yesterday we said goodbye to our brother Corky ?.’
‘Our hearts are broken, we’ll miss that big tail wagging, the puddles of drool on the floor when there is food around and that howl when someone comes in the house… sleep tight gorgeous boy, we’ll always love you forever and we were so lucky to have you for the time we did xxx.’
Louise reportedly rescued Corky, in 2016 with her ex-husband Jamie Redknapp when he was two years old.
He was taken in by the Wild at Heart Foundation when he was left abandoned on a doorstep at just six weeks old in Cyprus.
The foundation had reached out to Louise following news of Corky’s death and told the star: ‘We’re so sorry to hear this @louiseredknapp, and we’re sending lots of love your way.
‘You gave Corky THE most wonderful life, and he knew right until the end just how loved he was – you know where we are ❤️.’
