Hollywood super star Orlando Bloom has come up with a slightly unusual way to commemorate his beloved pooch. While his intentions are purely to honour his dog's memory, some people have found this memorial quite 'creepy'.

Bloom adopted the stray while filming in Morocco and the pair were often pictured on walkies together around the Hollywood Hills.

A constant reminder

But following Sidi's recent passing, Bloom couldn't imagine life without a constant reminder of his old best friend. So rather than putting up a photograph of his former pet, Orlando decided to mount the dog's skeleton and keep it on permanent display in his Hollywood home.

When asked about the unusual memorial, Bloom said: 

"I had his skeleton mounted so that he stays with me. I know that sounds a little odd to some people, but it is quite tastefully done and I still get to say goodnight to him.”


Orlando Bloom had the skeleton of his dog mounted so that his dog stays with him. I think I would of at least gone with a head mounting with the dog still intact over this!

The actor recently adopted a Labradoodle called Mighty, and he says a love of dogs is part of his DNA:

“I’m British and we are a nation of dog lovers. But even if I wasn’t British, I would still be an animal lover and especially a dog lover - I just cannot help myself. It doesn’t matter what kind of dog. I take one look in those eyes and I am immediately captivated.”

Mighty follows his master everywhere and has quickly adapted to the A-list lifestyle.

Sidi wasn't the first dog rescued by the star

Sidi wasn't the first dog rescued by Bloom. In fact, he's well-known for extending a helping paw to strays all over the world, including on a recent movie shoot in China:

"We were in Shanghai and I saw this dog limping around the streets. I couldn’t just leave her, so I helped the vet to give her a bath and shave the parts where she needed treatment."

So let's put our paws together for a fellow dog lover! Well done, Orlando. You've certainly made it into our good books!
