After days of searching for his missing dog, Orlando Bloom has revealed that his beloved Mighty has passed away.

In a post on Instagram, Bloom shared that the searching was over and his dog has gone to the “other side.” He also shared a video, paying tribute to Mighty by getting his name tattooed on his chest.

“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…,” he wrote in the post. “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 A ♠️’s.”

Bloom went on to thank his neighbors and the community for helping in the search and allowing him into their yards as he looked for his precious pup.

Jennifer Aniston replied to Bloom’s post saying, “The tears won’t stop. I’m so so so deeply sorry my friend. I love you. ❤️.”

Fiancée Katy Perry simply said, “I Love you,” in the comments section. She also posted the video on her Instagram page saying, “We’ll miss our little buddy boy, Nugget’s brother so much. Forever a paw shaped hole in our hearts 💔 #ripmighty.”

Bloom kept fans up to date on the search for his little dog, even posting photos of the the two together in happier times.

“I  don’t recall a time in my life where I’ve been so broken wide open,” he shared in one post.”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. ⁣I feel powerless… maybe like so many others who are losing loved ones or unable to see our loved ones because of the times.⁣”

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. ⁣ ⁣ I feel powerless… maybe like so many others who are losing loved ones or unable to see our loved ones because of the times.⁣ ⁣ Cherish the moments we share with the ones we love because nothing is promised. Trust it and don’t be afraid of love or the fear of losing love. Love is eternal. The bond between Mighty and I shows devotion in ways I have not truly understood until now. I am a devoted father & partner, still, there is a reason why they call them ‘man’s best friend’. I miss him. Send out a prayer for my little strong and Mighty boy to find his way back to his family. 🙏❤️⁣
