On July 16, 2023, Lou Doillon had to face a painful loss: that of his mother, Jane Birkin. The singer died, at the age of 76, alone in her Parisian apartment after numerous health problems… Lou Doillon paid her this tribute during his funeral in the church of Saint-Roch, in Paris : “there is roman and me with the rabbit in the front of the convenience store van, who laughs that you would have thought the windowless Mehari would withstand the downpour on the road in the dead of winter; There is you, who scares me going to Sarajevo under the bombs, because you say that later I would be ashamed that my mother had not done anything.”

After a difficult year in 2023, 2024 is off to a bad start for Lou Doillon and his little family. On Instagram he announced on Saturday, January 6, that she had lost a loved one, a full member of the family: his faithful companion for 12 years. Gustavo, whom the tribe nicknamed Gus. The dog and family pet for more than a decade died on January 5, as announced by Marlowe and Laszlo’s mother. The singer posted several photos on an Instagram story (see our slideshow) in which he wanted to pay tribute to his dog before concluding, by way of consolation, that he has now joined Jane Birkin. She writes in English: “You’re with my mom now.”.

a long dream

In the caption of her Instagram post, Stéphane Manel’s partner wrote, still in English:My love, goodbye little shadow. We thank you for everything. “Our hearts are broken”. The 41-year-old mother then decided to add some words from an Emily Dickinson poem titled “A very, very long dream”whether in french, “a very, very long dream”.

Lou Doillon thus cites this author whom he loves so much and whose preface to the collection entitled POETRY – by Emily Dickinson, illustrated by American modernist painting”, published by Editions Diane de Selliers, to pay tribute to her deceased dog. She posted several photos of her, including some of her with Gus, but also of Laszlo, the youngest of the family with her dog. Sadder, she added images of the pet’s burial in the garden of her house with the help of Marlowe, her eldest son born from her relationship with The musician John Ulysses Mitchell..

Stéphane Manel, Lou Doillon’s partner and Laszlo’s father, also wanted to pay tribute to Gustave. The designer published a drawing of the dog with a very nice text as a title. “Goodbye Gus, Greek God, Inca divinity, Japanese spirit… Tumbleweed in the desert, wind in the sands”, It begins poetically. And to continue with humor: “We projected everything onto you. One night you were Oum Kalsoum’s lover in a gloomy Cairo, the next day you could become Gabin as Maigret, another day a science fiction monster… anything was possible. Mountain of muscle and screen fantasy”.

“Children might be afraid of you on the street, but not Laszlo, who adopted you immediately and until yesterday.” he added wistfully. And add, always with emotion: “You were going to crouch in Tessa’s bed when it was still possible to force the door. You craved mainly the front seats of cars, the comfortable sofas that you systematically pulverized, armchairs of all kinds. Your motto could have been: ‘it is comfort for a my'”. Lou Doillon’s partner claimed that Gus was not “a normal dog” and he wanted to be “considered human” remembering his mood swings and strong character: “The countryside bored you, you preferred the asphalt and its bars. In the restaurant you waited for a fry to fall. Resting your big, heavy head on everyone’s thighs”, Laszlo’s father recalled not without emotion. Jokingly, he continued: “As for the smell, you alone managed to evoke an entire region. Auvergne, a great cheese board”. “Lou never let go of you, neither did Marlowe. (…) Your snoring shook us. We will miss you. Sleep peacefully”, He concluded. It will take time for Lou Doillon’s clan to get used to the absence of Gus, who brought them so much love…
