Jasmine Harman, 43, shared a series of photos of the family dog who she referred to as her “first baby”, in view of her 28,000 Instagram followers. The A Place In The Sun presenter described him as a “wonderful friend and companion” and took to the picture-sharing site to celebrate Shadow on the anniversary of his death.
In a sweet snap holding the canine, she wrote: “Five years today since we said goodbye to our first ‘baby’. Shadow was a wonderful friend and companion. My daughter’s first word was ‘Dadow’. We still miss him a lot. Even my son who wasn’t born yet at that time, sometimes says to me “Mummy I really miss Shadow”.
She added the hashtags: “#dogsofinstagram #rainbowbridge #gonebutneverforgotten.”
Fans flocked to comment on the post, with many offering their condolences.
One person commented: “Ah beautiful doggy! So sad when something happens to your pets…it’s like losing a family member.”
A Place in the Sun’s Jasmine Harman remarks ‘poor Angelina Jolie’
The emotional post comes a few days after Jasmine shared a throwback snap of her eldest daughter Joy Boast, six, as a newborn baby in honour of her birthday.
She gushed: “On this day 6 years ago, my life changed forever as my amazing little bundle of Joy arrived in this world. Every day she astonishes me. When singing her a bedtime song tonight, I was choked up. My baby has gone, but in her place is a smart, thoughtful, considerate, funny and truly fantastic girl of whom I am incredibly proud.”
Jasmine who tied the knot with her beau Jon Boast in 2009 are parents to Joy and their youngest son Albion Peter Jenson, three.
In an unearthed interview, the Channel 4 favourite spoke about the moment after she gave birth to her son Albion as the most “euphoric moment”.
It comes after she was rushed to hospital due to his erratic heart beat.
Speaking to OK! magazine, she said: “[Arriving at the hospital] was quite dramatic.
“There were lots of consultants bustling around, monitoring the baby’s heart rate and I distinctly remember someone saying: ‘I’ve never seen anything like it!’”
Jon added: “I felt very helpless.”
