Boo, the adorable little Pomeranian who stole everyone’s heart as the ‘world’s cutest dog’ has passed away, and his humans believe it was his broken heart over his best furry friend Buddy.

They say the only fault of dogs is that they don’t live long enough, and in this dog lovers all agree. The adorable little social media hit Pomeranian ‘Boo’ has died, and in social media posts sharing the news of his death, his humans say they believe that it was a broken heart over losing his furry brother Buddy in 2017.

In the post, his pet parents say that Boo’s heart issues first began after his adorable sidekick Buddy passed in September of 2017. Buddy and Boo shared 11 years together–thick as thieves and as close as dog brothers could be. After Buddy died, Boo’s heart showed signs of troubles, and he was able to live for a little over another year.

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. Over the years Boo met some super cool people, a lot of crazy talented people, but most of all so many kind people…friends who gave him endless love, people who prioritized his comfort over getting that perfect picture, partners who understood that Buddy ALWAYS had to be included, and last but definitely not least, the amazing doctors, therapists, and staff at Adobe Animal Hospital and Sage Veterinary Centers for the countless hours of care and dedication they poured into Buddy and Boo. 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, 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. Thank you to all of you for following along on their silly adventures over the past 10 years. They sure had a LOT of fun. With love and our deepest gratitude, Boo’s humans

In their Instagram post, his humans said, “We think his heart literally broke when Buddy left us.”

I am heartbroken to tell you that I said good-bye to my best friend, Buddy, yesterday. He had 14 full years, 11 of them…

In humans, there is a phenomenon that occurs sometimes after traumatic grief and loss. It’s called Takotsubo Cardiomyopathy, or ‘Broken-Heart Syndrome,’ and while often temporary, can lead to death.

Boo’s family says they are sure that when Boo passed in his sleep, he immediately went to Heaven and had a joyous reunion with his best pal Buddy.

They also thanked the staffs at Adobe Animal Hospital and Sage Veterinary Centers for their efforts with both Buddy and Boo.

Since Buddy passed, Boo’s been sharing his days with his other fur-siblings, and from their social media pictures, one can see that they will surely miss Boo too.

instagram caption: starting the new year off with a cozy group nap! 🤗 what’s actually happening: human bought bluebeary a new bed because we keep stealing them from him and he was loving it for about 12 seconds until benny and i came along, and he walked away shortly after this photo was taken mumbling “not again” under his breath. ☹️
