“This is a very sad day for our family,” he wrote in the caption. ‘Dali, our dear Frenchie, passed away last night. He would have been 12 next month… which I am told is a long life for this breed. I always, always called it the ROCKSTAR.
‘Because he was! He walked to the beat of his own drum, was loved by the world and had a good life. He will be missed, but know he howls in heaven, rules the roost and enjoys the all-you-can-eat buffet. RIP Dali Rockstar Jackman. We love you!’
