With his sweet teddy bear-like face, and tiny fuzzball frame, it’s no surprise that those who encountered him often said, “Awe … how cute!” Like most dogs, Boo loved running outside and playing with squeaky toys, but he wasn’t like other dogs in many ways. You see, Boo became a global sensation through the many posts that his owner would share of him on Facebook. In fact, Boo is so popular that his Facebook page has over 16.6 million “likes”! He also has his own book called Boo: The Adventures of the Cutest Dog in the World, a line of stuffed animals, and a number of other merchandise that grace the shelves of stores around the world. Sadly, Boo died in his sleep at the age of twelve earlier this month. His owner said that she thinks Boo died of a broken heart after his dearest friend and fellow Pomeranian, Buddy, died last year. She said, “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, we hope you and Buddy are having the best of times wherever you are! Rest in peace.
