Paris Fury revealed she would be pleased if her dog ‘was gone’ as the Loose Women panel discussed whether it’s ok to take time off work to grieve for a pet.
Appearing via video link on Tuesday’s show, Paris, who is married to boxer Tyson Fury, said her dog is ‘just another problem in the house’ and that she would be ‘pleased’ if she wasn’t there.
‘Me, personally, we’ve got a little dog,’ she began.
‘But, the dog is here and if the dog was gone, I know it sounds cruel, but I would be quite pleased if she was gone because she’s just another problem in the house.’
‘I know I probably shouldn’t but, I’ve got five peeing and pooping machines in my house,’ she added.

‘Then I add the dog who is a peeing and pooping machine, then I’ve got to feed them all, walk them all, wash them all and Tyson, who is a big giant peeing and pooping machine.’
Paris, who shares five children with the boxer, went on to mention that for some people, losing a dog would be ‘like losing an arm’.
‘If you’re in a quiet home that’s got maybe one person, two persons and then there’s the dog,’ she continued.

‘That’s a whole part of your life – that’s a big part of your life – especially if you’re a person on your own with just the dog, it’s your company.’
‘So, if they lost a dog I’d say gosh it’s like losing an arm, so it’s a really big thing to them.’
The discussion comes after comedian Miranda Hart confirmed that she was taking a break from her career so that she could grieve for her dog Peggy.
The 48-year-old opened up about the ‘excruciating sadness’ she is feeling after losing her ‘loyal, loving best friend’ – whom she bought in 2007 and inspired her 2016 memoir Peggy and Me – last week.
Sharing a number of heartwarming photos with her furry friend to Instagram, she wrote: ‘Last week I said goodbye to my beautiful, darling dog, Peggy.
‘I share because I shared her with you when I wrote Peggy and Me and many of you took her to your hearts. I have always been amused by and grateful for the pictures and gifts she was showered with. She used a blanket a fan gave her in Australia until the end.’
Miranda admitted the ‘pain’ she is feeling now ‘mirrors the unique joy’ she shared with Peggy, and confirmed plans to take a step back from the public eye.
