“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,” a message on Boo’s Facebook account reported to its 16 million followers. “Our family is heartbroken, but we find comfort knowing he is no longer in any pain or discomfort.”
Pet lovers everywhere woke up Saturday morning to some heartbreaking news: Boo, the social media-famous Pomeranian often dubbed the “world’s cutest dog,” has passed away.
The 12-year-old pooch racked up millions of fans over the years on both Instagram and Facebook. He often posed and played with his canine best friend, Buddy, and followers loved seeing both tiny dogs get into mischief together.
The post went on to say that Boo showed signs of heart issues as soon as his best pal died in 2017.
“I would like to thank Boo for being my center of focus for the last 7 years fighting cancer,” one person commented on Facebook. “My sister went to the gift shop in the hospital and bought me a tiny Boo stuffed animal.”
When Boo was just a four year old pup, his owner, who worked for the social media platform at the time and still does, decided to create a Facebook page for him, and the rest is history. His page began to get quite a bit of attention for his sweet face and laid back lifestyle when it was first created back in 2009. The incoming attention was bringing him more and more fame as the months and years went on, and still continues to attract new fans each and every day. His ‘About Me’ page says it all, stating “My name is Boo. I am a dog. Life is good.” We know your life is good, Boo. Keep it up.
Of course, there are thousands of adorable and irresistible pups all around the world, and regardless of looks, most pet owners will believe in their own heart of hearts that their pet is the cutest around. However, the world has decided for years on end now, and Boo has been given the title of the World’s Cutest Dog time and time again. The little Pomeranian has made quite a name for himself in recent years, and his face strikes the hearts of everyone who comes to see him on the internet, becoming a sensation that enlightens everyone no matter how old you are. Although he may be just a pup, there are many things to know about Boo and the life he leads as the World’s Cutest Dog, and that is why we are here. In this article, we are going to count down twenty fun facts that you may not know about the stylish and well known pooch, and why he stands out among the crowd. With that said, let’s get started with our countdown.
Boo’s fan page on Facebook isn’t only devoted to the little Pomeranian pup, as many would believe without first seeing it. Boo is most often featured with his brothers on the adventures that they take. Boo’s first brother is that of Buddy, who has been with him since the beginning of the fame and the success of it all. Buddy is also a Pomeranian, and he still sports the traditional long haired coat that we are used to seeing. Buddy unfortunately passed away late in 2017. Boo also has another brother who is a newer addition to the family. This brother is Sir Blueberry Pie, or Blue for short, and he is a Golden Retriever. Although he is the youngest of the brother, he most certainly exceeds them in size, but they all love to play with each other all the same.
If you haven’t looked on Boo’s Facebook page in recent times, you would have no idea the real potential and fan base that this little Pomeranian really has. Boo’s page has racked up almost 17 million followers in the time that it was created, and just continues to grow day by day, and year by year, as he continues to travel the world and have the most amazing life, all thanks to his immense success. Most people dream of having that many followers, and needless to say, Boo has most certainly hit celebrity status on the social media platform.
According to his owner, who tends to go by the pen name J.H. Lee, which we will discuss a little bit later in the article, his short haired haircut that he has came about totally by accident. Apparently before, he used to have a long haired coat, similar to that of his ‘brother’ Buddy, who can also be seen on the Facebook page. However, after his hair got so knotted and tangled, and we mean to the point where a brush just simply won’t cut it, Boo’s owner decided to completely shave it off. Well, needless to say, the haircut has become the epitome of Boo’s success in the years since his Facebook page first began, and I don’t think they would change that ‘accident’ for anything in the world.
