Wellards being killed off
Wellard's had an eventful life, and a host of different masters since he and Robbie parted ways. He was Gus's faithful companion for many years, but recently ended up back with the Jacksons after Gus went on tour.
Doggy actor Kyte, who is actually a female, is the third generation of her family to play Wellard. The role was originally filled by Kyte's grandmother, and then passed to her mum.
