Boo the Pomerianian, the adorable bundle of fluff once named the World’s Cutest Dog, has passed away at the age of 12.
Boo’s owner made the sad announcement via Facebook, telling Boo’s some 16 million followers, “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.”
“I brought Boo home in the spring of 2006 and so started the greatest, most heartwarming friendship of all time. 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.”
“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,” Boo’s owner revealed on Facebook.
Not only was Boo an internet sensation, he also published a book Boo: The Life of the World’s Cutest Dog in 2011.
