‘World’s cutest dog’ Boo the Pomeranian dies aged 12

Boo the Pomeranian

Before the number of cute Instagram accounts dedicated to animals became a thing, there was Boo the Pomeranian. Boo was the Original dog of the Internet and looked quite literally like a teddy come to life. He looked adorable doing everything and nothing. He had a best friend, a fellow-adorable pup named Buddy. He had an Instagram account with over 500 thousand followers and a Facebook account with 16 million followers. He sometimes dressed up. His popularity transcended social media; there was even a book called Boo – The Life of the World’s Cutest Dog.

His daily frolics ensured there was always one happy corner of the internet we could venture to on the days when real life was just too much.

And so, we are sad that he has passed away. His owners announced Boo died at the age of 12 this weekend.

The teddy bear-like animal was a social media star and according to a statement issued by Boo’s owners on Instagram, the popular dog has had cardiac problems ever since the death of his “best friend”, Buddy, another dog they owned who died in 2017.

“We think his heart literally broke when Buddy left us,” they wrote.
“He hung on 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.”

The post goes on to explain how Boo had died in his sleep in the early hours of Saturday morning and that despite being “heartbroken”, the owners are pleased he will no longer be suffering.”

 “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.

“Boo, we love you with all our hearts and will miss you until the day we meet again.”

“Have fun running around with Buddy and creating adorable mischief wherever you guys go.”

We’re not crying, you’re crying.

Okay, we’re all crying.
