Plus, Gus had been through some bad times with the actor before: In 2018, Fox underwent surgery to remove a tumor from his spine and while he was in a wheelchair, he said that ” the dog never left me he walked around me, then one day he sat in front of me, looked at me and told me that everything would be fine”.

A profound pain his loss which, as we know fully well, he cannot be replaced by a new animal since no one will be able to take his place.

The grief that one needs to go through when an animal is absent, or a love so deep, is important to deal with the pain of no longer being able to hold it in one’s arms and no one can explain how and when to do it. Everyone takes their time and the “journey” must be honored by people who encounter the person who has lost a life partner.

But Blue will undoubtedly soothe the pain, because although being different from Gus no animal is identical to another, but it will not be different the boundless love that he will know how to provide to the actor.
