By: Jonathan Maes/Shareably Jeffrey Dean Morgan, an actor most famous for his roles in Grey’s Anatomy, The Good Wife, Extant and The Walking Dead, has recently shared a picture of a new tattoo he has gotten on his arm. The tattoo simply says ‘Bisou’. While many may assume that the name Bisou might be from a family member or a lover, Jeffrey actually devoted the tattoo to a pup he saved over twelve years ago.
Jeffrey once found himself in Venice Beach, California and met a couple of kids that were selling puppies in a box. The famous actor asked the kids how much one puppy would cost, and they responded with the price of $300.
At that very moment, the man saw a very small puppy that was laying at the bottom of the box and asked him how much “the one’s that not gonna make it through the day”. Jeffrey offered a $20 bill and the kids accepted.
Jeffrey wanted to care for the little and sick puppy and took her to a veterinary. He didn’t think that she would make it to tomorrow, but the little pup managed to surpass everyone’s expectations.
Days passed and the little dog slowly but surely got better. Jeffrey took her home and introduced her to his other pets. His dog Bandit quickly befriended the little pup.
A while ago in 2009, Jeffrey told this heartwarming story to Bonnie Hunt on a talk show. “I bottle fed her for a month, and she used to kiss her way around, which is how she got her name Bisou — it means ‘kiss’ in French.”
Unfortunately, Bisou passed away after twelve happy years with Jeffrey and the rest of his pets. However, Bisou will live on through Jeffrey. The actor himself devoted this tattoo to his beloved pet and will especially remember the good times they’ve had together.
