WASHINGTON (CIRCA) — Boo, the Pomeranian dubbed the "world's cutest dog," has died from heart issues, his owner announced on Facebook.
Boo's owner says he died in his sleep, but they're comforted knowing his pain is over:
"Our family is heartbroken, but we find comfort knowing that he is no longer in any pain or discomfort."
Boo's owner says he joins his brother and best friend Buddy who died the previous year, leaving Boo heartbroken.
