Tom Hardy’s labrador Woodstock (Woody) at the film premiere of Legend, September 2015.

Woody was six years old, and is believed to have died from polymyositis.

“To the bestest friend ever… he burnt very very bright and those that burn very bright sometimes burn half as long. The world for me was a better place with him in it and by my side.”

“To the bestest friend ever. Woody was the bestest of journey companions we ever could dream of having. Our souls intertwined forever… he burnt very very bright and those that burn very bright sometimes burn half as long. The world for me was a better place with him in it and by my side.”

I said make sure
he gets a nice thick blanket
because he has arthritis
and deserves the softest things
always

I said don’t cry mom
it’s not his time
I don’t feel it in my gut
But I still called out
of work
like I was preparing
for something

I said he isn’t in
pain anymore but
he was in pain
before
and he tried to tell
us but he couldn’t

I was in class
while he died
laying on a towel
in the center of a metal table

I heard my sister
crying in the bathroom
through the walls

Heard the foreign
sound of my dad
sobbing quietly outside

There is no shadow like the one
that sticks to the floor
where his bed used to be

Tom Hardy posted a touching tribute honoring the friendship he shared with his dog Woody, who passed away earlier this week: “He was an Angel. And he was my best friend. We went through so much together. Thank you Woody for choosing to find us. We will love you and be with you and you with us forever. Never ever ever forgotten. Your Boy tom xxx I love you beyond words.” 💔

So, I met Tom Hardy today and had a casual conversation and stroked his dog Woody. I wasn’t star struck because all I have thought about is meeting Cillian Murphy which did not happen. I’m being ungrateful I know. Tom was total babetown USA though, it was nice being called ‘sweetheart’ from his sweet mouth.
