Boo, the Pomeranian AKA ‘The World’s Cutest Dog’ has sadly passed away
“Our family is heartbroken, but we find comfort knowing that he is no longer in any pain or discomfort”.
Guys and gals, it is with great sadness that we inform you of the death of Boo, the 12-year-old Pomeranian who captured the hearts of millions of people (including us).
Often referred to as ‘The World’s Cutest Dog’, Boo has been an internet sensation for the past decade, accumulating over 16 million followers on Facebook and 534,000 on Instagram – we know, that’s pretty damn impressive!
Boo’s family took to social media to share the news, revealing the pup had passed away in his sleep and suffered from heart issues, shortly after his brother Buddy died in 2017:
“Dearest friends of Boo, with deepest sadness I wanted to share that Boo passed away in his sleep early this morning and has left us to join his best friend, Buddy. Our family is heartbroken, but we find comfort knowing that he is no longer in any pain or discomfort. We know that Buddy was the first to greet him on the other side of that rainbow bridge, and this is likely the most excited either of them have been in a long time.”
“Since starting Boo’s FB page, I’ve received so many notes over the years from people sharing stories of how Boo brightened their days and helped bring a little light to their lives during difficult times. And that was really the purpose of all this...Boo brought joy to people all over the world. Boo is the happiest dog I’ve ever met. He was so easy going that we never had to bother with training. He made the manliest of men squeal with delight over his cuteness and made everyone laugh with his quirky, tail wagging personality."
“Shortly after Buddy died, Boo showed signs of heart issues. We think his heart literally broke when Buddy left us. He hung on and gave us over a year. But it looks like it was his time, and I’m sure it was a most joyous moment for them when they saw each other in heaven.”
Thousands of fans have rushed to pay tribute to their favourite doggo, sharing nothing but love and their condolences:
RIP Boo, we’ll miss you and your four-legged adventures.
