The internet is in mourning after the loss of a favorite furry friend. Boo, who was once named the World's Cutest Dog, sadly has died.

Boo the Pomeranian was 12-years-old when he passed away on Friday. According to his owners, he had suffered from heart issues and they believe his heart literally broke when their other dog Buddy passed away a year ago.

“With the deepest sadness, I wanted to share that Boo passed away in his sleep early this morning … Our family is heartbroken, but we find comfort knowing that he is no longer in any pain or discomfort," Boo's owner shared in a Facebook post.

"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," the post continued.
