Paul O’Grady has been left heartbroken as his beloved dog, Bullseye has died.
The presenter, known for his love of animals through his TV show For the Love of Dogs, has revealed that he lost his furry friend when he suffered an epileptic seizure.
Paul shared the sad news with the listeners of his BBC Radio 2 show yesterday.
"Now I will tell you my lousy news,” he began.
"You know that I did have an epileptic dog called Bullseye. I've got two dogs that both have epilepsy and I've managed it with medication.
He went on to describe Bullseye as a lovely dog and talked about his funny dislike for doorways.
“You had to coax him through them and he wouldn’t go upstairs. It was part of his condition I think, he was a sweet little dog and sadly missed.”
