‘Tribute to my boy’ Ulrika Jonsson unveils new tattoo and emotional story behind it | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV
Ulrika Jonsson, 53, showed off one of her new tattoos to her fans, which turned out to be a touching tribute to her former pup. It comes after the TV presenter and model announced the death of her beloved bulldog Fella, two months after she made the heartbreaking decision to give him away to a foster home.
Ulrika had previously spoken about why she had to give him away, after he started to be targeted in vicious attacks by another one of her pooches.
She announced to her 161K Instagram followers that Fella passed away gently in his sleep at nine years old, and in his honour, she decided to get some ink of sentimental value.
Taking to the social media site, she penned: “A wee tribute to my boy, Fella, who I lost in March.
“Initially fostered by me from the amazing @theedwardfoundation but I knew I couldn’t let him go, he was a keeper.

“A 9 yr old boy who’d had a pretty rough life and was riddled with health issues.
“But I hope we gave him the best last 1 1/2yrs of his life (with huge thanks to Clare HB at the end) despite his dementia and general bonkersness like eating soil and barking at walls…
“What a handsome boy you were, Fell. My God, we loved you.”
She added: “(Had a couple of other inks done today. Will reveal in due course). Thanks @littlelourose,” while encouraging her followers to adopt and not shop when it comes to getting pets.
“Fella got his happy ending with you,” a fourth said.
Back in March, Ulrika shared a lengthy post about the tragic news.
She wrote: “My beloved Fella passed away in his sleep this morning.
“Many of you will know he came to me July 2019 as a handsome 9 yr old in very bad shape.”
