The couple apparently has a joint custody thing for chihuahuas Buster and Coco. And now, in a bid to show his love and care for the pets, the footballer has bestowed them with expensive leather collars, embroidered with the letter A.
In fact, he has also bought Cheryl a gold brooch in the shape of a leaf. "Ashley is willing to do anything to win back Cheryl," the Mirror quoted a pal as saying.
"He reckons he"s had a long, hard think and is a changed man. He had the brooch made and wanted it to represent how he would never stray again if she gave him one more chance. He arranged for two pals to collect the gifts and drop them off at their home in Surrey, ready to greet Cheryl when she got in from the airport. Both Cheryl and Ashley love their Chihuahuas so the leather collars were a bit of a light-hearted, jokey present. He had them engraved with the letter 'A" again as a bit of a joke. But he is hoping Buster and Coco will wear them with pride," added the friend.
