Orlando Bloom recently posted on Instagram that he and Katy Perry’s dog was missing. Along with a series of photos of their pup, Mighty, he wrote, “I don’t recall a time in my life where I’ve been so broken wide open. The rawness I have felt over these past few days and sleepless nights at the idea of my little man being lost and scared, with me unable to do anything to protect him, is a waking nightmare.”
Now the actor has confirmed that he and Katy Perry’s dog has passed away. He shared video of himself getting a tattoo of the dog’s name on his chest and wrote a tribute to his friend.
Orlando said, “Mighty’s on the other side now. After 7 days of searching from sunrise to sunset and into the wee hours, today, the 7th day ~the number of completion~ we found his collar… I have wept more this week than I thought possible, which has been very cathartic and healing… I left no stone unturned, crawled thru all the man holes, under the roads, searched every back yard and creek bed. Had two separate sniffer dogs do their best as well.”
“I feel so grateful to have learned from my little Mighty man that love is eternal and the true meaning of devotion. I feel sure he was looking down on me whistling in every back yard and knowing that I was doing all I possibly could to respect our bond. He was more than a companion. It was a soul connection for sure. I’m sorry. I love you. Thank you. RIP my MIGHTY HEART my little fellow.”
“Thank you to the community for allowing me to search through their yards for him and supporting my midnight walks. It was reassuring to see the best of people even in the worst of times.”
Orlando Bloom and Katy Perry are expecting a baby, and Katy’s album will be released on August 14.
