The McCain family is in mourning after a "tragic accident" claimed the life of their dear pet, reported Fox News. Cindy McCain announced the sad news on her Instagram.
Cindy revealed that her late husband Sen. John McCain’s beloved dog, Burma, died. She shared a photo of the pet along with a caption.
She wrote, "To all who loved our dear Burma. She died today in a tragic accident at our beloved Hidden Valley. She [is] now frolicking with the one she loved most in heaven now @senjohnmccain."
Meghan McCain also wrote a tribute to the dog on Instagram.
She wrote, "Every time I think my heart can’t be broken any further...our dog Burma was my fathers birthday present years ago and was absolutely and truly devoted to him. She would never leave his side, followed him around every single step when he would walk around our ranch, slept by his side every night and we always said Chesapeake bay retrievers were the most affectionate breed of dogs.
She continued, even going as far as to call the dog a family member: "The love this dog gave him was equal to a family member. I love you Burma and hope you’re in heaven jumping into creeks, chasing sticks and fish with Dad."
In a subsequent post, McCain shared a video of the Burma swimming.
The late Arizona senator died in August after a battle with brain cancer. Please pray for the family as they lose a piece of their beloved father and husband.
