IO – The death of Waldo Picasso, the dog of Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner, must have been quite impactful for the couple, as they decided to both have a tattoo made of the dog.
The couple’s Alaskan Klee Kai puppy was a relatively new addition to their family (they got him in April 2018), and was recently hit by a car in what Joe’s rep is calling a “freak accident.”
According to TMZ, Waldo Picasso was with Sophie and Joe’s dog walker in New York City when, “the dog got spooked by a pedestrian, broke free, ran into the street and was struck by a vehicle.”
Joe and Sophie have understandably been having a super hard time processing Waldo’s death, and got tattoos as a way of remembering him. Joe shared his Waldo ink on Instagram, writing “R.I.P. my little angel:”
Turner uploaded a photo of the same tattoo on her Instagram story. “I miss you, Waldo. Rest in peace my little baby,” she wrote.
Jonas named the tattoo artist in his Instagram post, New York based Keith McCurdy. The tattoo artist is indeed well known, with clients such as Rihanna, Miley Crus, and Justin Bieber.
Aside from getting the matching tattoos, Sophie and Joe have been processing their grief with therapy. TMZ even reported that “they delayed filing the report because they were so torn up, they had to go to a therapist after the incident.”
Losing a pet is so damn hard, so feel free to go be extra nice to your pets. (rp)
