McGregor took to Instagram to lament his fallen pet. “So heart broken to say my dog Hugo has passed away,” Conor wrote in the caption. “He was with me all the way, my closest companion. From sleeping on a bed frame without a mattress to everything else that came after. Thank you for all the work put in alongside me to get this life correct for our family. All the love and cuddles we will miss forever and ever our Hugo! Gutted 💔 RIP the best boy Hugo McGregor 🙏”
