"My heart is broken, and I don't know how I'm going to get through this. It hurts so much, that my handsome, incredible Pudsey Bear will never be by my side, where he belongs, again.

"We only had 11 years together, but they were the best years ever. He was my one in a billion dog that will never be replaced."

She added: "I don't need to write all of his endless accomplishments on here to prove how incredible he was for me.

"Sleep tight my handsome man, I love you lots xxxx."

Named after Pudsey Bear, which in turn was named after the picturesque West Yorkshire village of Pudsey, the dog's last Crufts competition in March.

Ashleigh had previously told the Sun that Pudsey helped her through hard times when she was growing up.

"I used to hear them saying, 'Oh, there's dog girl, all she ever does is hang around with her dogs'.

"But when I got home if I was down or anything like that, Pudsey knew and he'd come up and sit next to me.

"And I know when he doesn't want to do something or he's not himself or feeling right.

"The hardest thing I've found is protecting him from other people.

"Everywhere we go everybody wants a trick."
