Apparently the dog died after battling cancer and its owners will miss it for a very long time.

Bo has still lived quite a long life and was born in October 2008 which is both comforting for the family and making things even sadder since the dog has been part of their household for so many years!

The former president published a series of pictures of the animal and wrote next to them: “Today our family has lost a true friend and companion. For over a decade, Bo has been a constant and gentle presence in our lives – happy to see us on good, bad, and every day in between. He tolerated all the excitement that came with staying at the White House, had a fairly large bark but no bite, enjoyed jumping in the pool in the summer, was unwavering with children, lived for the leftovers at the dining table, and had beautiful hair. It was exactly what we all needed and more than we ever expected. We will miss him very much. ‘

As mentioned earlier, former first lady Michelle Obama also shared her heartache and tribute to the family’s pet on her own platform.

In addition to cute pictures of the puppy sitting in the President’s chair in the Oval Office, appearing on the red carpet, playing with the family and even visiting patients in hospitals, Michelle wrote:

“This afternoon was very difficult for our family. We said goodbye to our best friend – our dog – after a battle with cancer. During the 2008 campaign, we promised our daughters that they would have a puppy after the election. Back then, Bo was supposed to be a companion for the girls. We had no idea how much he would mean to all of us. ‘
