Si chiamava Boo ed era senza dubbio il cane più famoso  e dolce del mondo, seguitissimo sui social, con più di 500mila follower su Instagram e oltre 16 milioni di fan su Facebook, si è spento nella notte tra venerdì e sabato per un attacco di cuore mentre dormiva. A dare l'annuncio della scomparsa del dolce cagnolino, un pomerania bicolore dal pelo folto e morbido, sono stati i padroni che sui social hanno pubblicato un album di foto del cane accompagnato da un lungo post d'addio in cui viene spiegato ai fan l'accaduto: "È con grande tristezza che vi annunciamo che Boo si è spento nel sonno, ci ha lasciati per raggiungere il suo migliore amico, Buddy". Buddy è l'altro cagnolino che appariva in moltissime foto insieme a Boo.

I padroni di Boo e Buddy nel lungo post di addio spiegano come il pomerania non si sia mai totalmente ripreso dopo la morte del compagno di avventure Buddy, avvenuta nel 2017, e sia morto quasi di conseguenza per il dolore: "Ho portato a casa Boo nel 2006 – scrive il padrone del cane sui social – da quel momento è iniziata la più grande amicizia di tutti i tempi. Dopo la morte di Buddy, Boo ha cominciato a manifestare problemi di cuore. Boo ha provato a farsi forza ed è stato con noi più di un anno ancora". Il padrone continua affermando che senza dubbio Boo ora è felice perché ha ritrovato in paradiso il suo caro amico Buddy. Il lungo post di addio si conclude con i ringraziamenti dei padroni rivolti ai cagnolini e con l'augurio di poter correre ancora insieme in un altro posto lontano dalla terra.

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
