Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner honour dead dog with matching tattoos

Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner have paid tribute to their dead dog with matching tattoos.

The newlyweds’ Alaskan Klee Kai, named Waldo Picasso, was killed on 24 July in a freak accident during which he ran away from his dog walker and into a New York road, where he was struck by a car.

Now, the grieving owners have honoured their late pet in a permanent way with skin art portraits of the pooch, with two different coloured eyes and his tongue playfully sticking out.

Jonas Brothers star Joe revealed his tattoo, done by the artist Dragon of Bang Bang Tattoo in New York, on Instagram on Monday, and added the message: “R.I.P. my little angel.”

Game of Thrones star Sophie posted a snap of the matching ink on her arm, and wrote on Instagram Stories: “I miss you, Waldo. Rest In Peace my little baby.”

The couple, who got the pup in 2018, were reportedly so distraught over the death that they went to see a therapist to deal with their loss. They also filed a police report, but law enforcement sources told TMZ the driver of the vehicle that killed Waldo is unlikely to be charged with any crime.

Back in December, Joe sweetly explained how Waldo and his brother Porky help to relax him when he needs to wind down from his busy schedule.

“I’m usually on the move quite a bit, even when I’m home, I wanna be doing a lot of stuff. But, it’s nice when you have a dog where you know you gotta take ’em for a walk, you gotta spend some time and play with ’em, and it keeps you nice and relaxed,” he told the Today show.
