“She was a lovely dog, all full of spirit and joy and bounce (and farts and night-barking), me and Laura will miss her but carry the love we felt amidst that passing pain.”
He continued: “Thanks for her lovely life Unknowable, Unquenchable Cosmic Force that makes all possible.”
His fans and fellow celebrities rushed to support Russell, with Alan Carr writing: “Aww mate how awful. Sending you lots of love.”
As Fearne Cotton followed up: “Sending you all the love. She was so special.”

Dog-lover Russell made headlines last year after his dog Bear, a German Shepherd, reportedly mauled a wallaby to death near his Oxfordshire home.
Henley-on-Thames has a population of wild wallabies which were believed to have escaped from a private collection around two decades ago.
Russell had rushed to save the marsupial, which had a baby in her pouch, and though he managed to rescue the baby, the mother sadly died.

A bystander told The Sun: “Absolutely no-one is blaming Russell or his dog – it’s just a horrible accident.
“In fact Russell was the hero because he managed to save the little joey. It could have been far worse if he hadn’t stepped in so quickly.”
An animal lover, Russell regularly shares snaps of his adorable pooches on social media, and offered fans a throwback snap to when Bear was just a fluffy puppy in 2017.
The comedian could be seen cradling his pup in his hands as Bear’s fluffy paws flopped freely around.
