Anushka also shared a selfie posing with Virat and Bruno with the caption, “Bruno RIP” adding three black heart emojis.
As per a Cricket Country report, Virat once said, “When I come back home after a match or a tour, Bruno is the first one to greet me and jump all over me. He is truly a bundle of joy. I take him out for walks and runs whenever I can. I love spoiling him with treats occasionally. And I also take him out on weekend trips. Once, we took our pet with us up on a drive to Mussoorie, and he loved the wind on his face! He had his head out of the window for most of the drive. There are many more memorable moments together.”
Meanwhile, Virat and Anushka have been quarantining during the coronavirus lockdown. They’ve put out several public service messages during this time, urging their fans and followers to respect government guidelines, practice social distancing and proper hygiene.
