“Our family is heartbroken, but we find comfort knowing that he is no longer in any pain or discomfort,” the post says. “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.”

The post then goes on to reveal that ever since his best friend died, Boo had been experiencing heart problems.

“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.”
