The fluffy and cheerful Pomeranian, whose charm and good looks captured the hearts of the Internet, has died.
Boo, 12, died while sleeping on Friday morning, according to an announcement on social media signed "Boo humans."
"With deep sadness, I wanted to share that Boo pbaded away while he slept early this morning and has left us to join his best friend, Buddy," the post said. "Our family is disconsolate, but we feel comfortable knowing that they no longer feel pain or discomfort. We know that Buddy was the first to greet him on the other side of the rainbow bridge, and this is probably the most excited any of them has been in a long time. "
He went on to say that Boo had started developing heart problems last year after the death of Buddy, his close companion and Pomeranian companion.
"We think his heart broke literally when Buddy left us," the post said. Its owners said that "it was a very happy moment for them when they saw themselves in heaven".
Boo stood out on social media in 2009. In 2011, its owner published the book. Boo: The life of the cutest dog in the world under a pseudonym. For years, countless articles about Boo would refer to him as the "cutest dog in the world." In his death, Boo had more than 16 million followers on Facebook and 550,000 followers on Instagram. Many of his fans expressed their pain with tributes to the adorable dog.
