Prime News, International (San Francisco), January 20:- A dog widely considered to be the world’s cutest has died a year after his canine companion of what his owner believes to be a broken heart.
The news that Boo the Pomeranian had died was broken on the fluffy pooch’s social media accounts to his 17.5m followers. The adorable dog died just over a year after best-friend Buddy, prompting owner Irene Ahn to speculate he had succumbed to sadness. A post made to his 541,000 Instagram followers early on Saturday morning read: “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 became friends with Buddy when the thoroughbred joined Irene’s San Fransisco home in 2006.
The pair became inseparable and were happiest when posing for photographs with one another. Channelled through his owner – who works at tech giant Facebook – Boo’s first post to the world simply said: “My name is Boo. I am a dog. Life is good.” He shot to stardom in October 2010 when singer Kesha sent a Tweet that she had a new boyfriend, linking to the page. Noticing Boo’s then five million followers, Chronicle Books asked Irene to write a picture book featuring some of his cutest snaps.’Boo: The Life of the World’s Cutest Dog’ would go on to be published in ten languages and be followed by ‘Boo: Little Dog in the Big City’.Remembering some of the qualities that made him so popular, the adorable pup’s owners wrote: “Boo brought joy to people all over the world.
