Ulrika Jonsson has paid tribute to her beloved pooch who died just two-months after he was put into foster care.
The Swedish-British TV presenter, 53, took to Instagram to unveil her new body ink, dedicated to her late furry friend who she called, Fella.
Animal lover Ulrika showed off her latest tattoo to her 162,000 followers as she explained her meaningful connection with the late dog.
Alongside a snap of Fella’s name inked on her arm, Ulrika penned: “A wee tribute to my boy, Fella, who I lost in March.
“Initially fostered by me from the amazing @theedwardfoundation, but I knew I couldn’t let him go; he was a keeper.”
Ulrika went on to explain that Fella had endured a ‘pretty rough life’ as well as being ‘riddled’ with a number of health issues.

Despite his baggage, the TV star fell head over heels in love with the adorable pooch, and his presence in her life left a lasting impact – one that she never saw coming.
“A 9-year-old old boy who’d had a pretty rough life and was riddled with health issues.
“But I hope we gave him the best last 1 1/2yrs of his life, despite his dementia and general bonkersness like eating soil and barking at walls.
“What a handsome boy you were, Fell. My God, we loved you,” Ulrika finished off the emotional post.

When Ulrika first took Fella in, he had a broken jaw, arthritis , testicular cancer, and tumours in his mouth.
She quickly nursed him back to health and treated him as though he was one of her ‘children’.
Sadly, Ulrika suffered heartbreak when her beloved Fella lost his battle with sickness earlier this year.
It’s not the first time the star has got inked in a bid to pay tribute to her beloved pets.
Fella passed away earlier this year
Back in May, Ulrika shared a look at her latest body ink as a token of love for all her pet pooches who have died.
The blonde beauty posted a topless snap to showcase the tattoos on her upper back.
Ulrika insisted that the tattoo which is dedicated to Dexter is ‘long overdue’ as she gave the first glimpse of the piece of art which spelled her beloved dog’s name alongside a tattoo of his paw imprint.
Above her ‘Dexter’ tattoo, Ulrika also got the words ‘Mother of Bullies’ inked on her skin.

She also recently revealed a tattoo dedicated to her beloved bulldog Nessie, who passed away last year.
The TV star was left devastated last December when her pooch died of kidney failure after spending two days at the vets.
But she now has a permanent reminder of her pet – which she previously called her “first born fur baby”.

Last month, Ulrika posed in the mirror and shared a photo of herself showing a huge sunflower tattoo on her arm.
Beneath the yellow inking was the name “Nessie” written in black ink and in simple joined-lettering calligraphy.
