James Middleton is Heartbroken by His Therapy Dog’s Death

James Middleton, brother of the Princess of Wales, took to social media to share the tragic news that his therapy dog Ella, who had helped him through his sadness, had passed away. Ella was there for Mr. Middleton “from my darkest days to my happiest,” he added.  He had been honest about his mental health issues when he thanked Ella for introducing him to his future wife Alizée Thevenet.

He wrote on Instagram: “It is with great sadness that I announce my dear Ella has passed away… For 15 years Ella has been at my side, from my darkest days to my happiest. I’m going to miss her terribly.”

“Ella had a very short illness, she slipped away in my arms at home and is now buried in the garden alongside Tilly. I took this picture just a few hours before she died. I’m just about holding it together to write this, and despite the fact I knew this day was coming, it doesn’t make it any easier.”

“Goodnight my darling Ella, Alizee, and the dogs will take good care of me.”

He sent two images of Ella to the message, one of which was taken by him hours before she passed away in his arms. Mr. Middleton had previously revealed to his followers how Ella had changed his life by helping him overcome clinical depression, prompting him to join Pets As Therapy, an organization that brings therapy dogs into care facilities to improve the well-being of the residents there.

Both he and Ella had been volunteers with the organization for almost four years before she passed away on Friday. For example, Mr. Middleton has written about his very difficult struggle with the condition:

“A few years ago I was in a very dark and lonely place, I was existing without purpose or direction, the constant heart thudding anxiety stripped away any joy, excitement or anticipation.”

“It was during this time that I realized how much my dogs, in particularly [sic] Ella, helped me during a really difficult battle with clinical depression. She saved my life…” as per reports of Express.co.uk.
