ULRIKA Jonsson continues to grieve her beloved Nessie saying all she ‘can smell is grief’.
Her beloved bulldog died this week after being rushed to the vets with kidney failure, leaving the TV presenter ‘bereft’.
Ulrika, 52, shared with her fans her first day without Nessie, as she and her remaining pooch, Leo.
A very sad looking Leo was perched on the sofa with his face in his paws before he and Ulrika went to lay flowers at Nessie’s grave.
The grieving dog mum revealed they’d buried their beloved Nessie next to her other late bulldog, Dexter.
Ulrika then posted a video of an agitated Leo at home who “didn’t quite know where to put himself” after losing his sister, and she admitted she doesn’t know ‘either’.
Later in the day, Ulrika shared a heartbreaking selfie of her shoulder and the bottom half of her face.
She wrote: “All I can smell is #grief.”
She said: “Ma grande dame. My first born fur baby.
Has spent 48hrs at our lovely vet’s. She’s not going to win this battle. I’ve been beyond distraught and bereft. We will keep her at home as long as we can. My girl. #nessie“
She told fans how much she was struggling.
Alongside a make-up free selfie she wrote: “Difficult times.
For everyone. Not feeling it for all sorts of reasons.”
“All those a**** out there who say ‘stay strong’ foolishly make the assumption you were strong from the start. “
“Some of us are not. Don’t feel the need to stay strong. Just stay.
Ulrika has been working on British TV since the late 80s and has hosted some of the biggest TV shows in the UK.
She has previously revealed how her dogs helped her greatly with her depression.
“I couldn’t live without them. I centre my life around the children and the dogs. They’ve been very good for my depression because they’re such excellent company (now I really do sound mad…),” Ulrika told Pets Pyjamas.
“But going for daily walks helps me tremendously. Not only does it get me out of the house but you invariably meet other dog owners who are – as a general rule – very nice.”
