Nearly Chooses Suicide After His Mini Poodle Itchy Gifted By His Long-Term Girlfriend Dies!
Chris Packham has been seeing a therapist since the tragic loss of his mini poodle Itchy. He had two dogs gifted by his longtime girlfriend which he named Itchy and Scratchy.
Itchy is no more with him or any of us in this world and Packham is finding this loss very tragic and has said to have tried suicide twice. He was very close to his dog. On his statement he gave to dailymail.co.uk, he said,
The boys loved me so I couldn’t do it. They kept me alive. I owe them my life. I always will. We always had a very close bond the three of us – we were like three peas in a pod. It’s a mutual love affair, very much so. We always shared our space and our food and our time.
We feel absolutely devastated for Chris, and we hope has enough courage to cope up with the loss.
Chris Packham’s Longtime Girlfriend – When are They Getting Married?
Chris Packham is said to be dating his girlfriend Charlotte Corney for quite a long time now. The couple has been said to be together since 2012, and they even share a house together in the Deep forest along with their dog. Their relationship is going stronger than ever.
His previous dog Fish died when he was the age of 40. His girlfriend understood his grief and replaced it with his current dog Itchy and Scratchy, but unfortunately, he lost Itchy too.
Charlotte herself is an animal lover, and she has a zoo inherited from her parents. She further says,
We (my parents) had a large number of wild animals that were being hand reared by my parents. There was a leopard, lions, a tiger and bears. It was only when I grew up that I realised how privileged I was to be sharing my home with those sorts of animals. And of course my friends were always keen to come over.
It looks like we will be hearing wedding news from the couple soon as they both are so supportive of each other and a match made in heaven. We all are waiting!
