After a week of searching for his missing dog Mighty, Orlando Bloom has confirmed that "Mighty's on the other side now," paying tribute to his beloved pup with a new tattoo etched over his heart.
On Wednesday morning, the Pirates of the Caribbean actor, shared an emotional message on Instagram, including footage of new ink he got on his chest in honor of Mighty, which includes the dog's name with an ace of spades symbol enclosed in a heart.
Bloom captioned the series of videos and image letting his concerned fans know that after 7 days of searching “from sunrise to sunset into the wee hours,” Mighty’s collar was found. He continued, “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 manholes, under the roads, searched every back yard and creek bed. Had two separate sniffer dogs do their best as well.”
Orlando kept on sharing his appreciation for his adorable companion ”I feel so grateful to have learned from my little Mighty man that love is eternal and the true meaning of devotion," he continued. "I feel sure he was looking down on me whistling in every backyard 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 A ♠️’s.
In addition he thanked those in his neighborhood for letting him search through their yards and for supporting his midnight walks throughout the search process, writing “it was reassuring to see the best of people even in the worst of times.” As well as the "angels" at Dog Days Search & Rescue, noting he was "forever" in their debt and that the "ladies are Heaven sent." Bloom finished off by giving a shout-out to tattoo artist Scott Campbell for his work.
Bloom’s fiancée Katy Perry re-posted Bloom’s thoughtful words, adding a tribute of her own, “We’ll miss our little buddy boy, Nugget’s brother so much. Forever a paw shaped hole in our hearts #ripmighty.”
