This video features Boo, the “cutest dog in the world”. We’re not quite sure that any dog can actually own this title – but nonetheless, Boo is a very cute dog. Boo is a Pomeranian who became a huge internet sensation after his owner put up a Facebook page featuring his pictures back in 2009. As of June 2016, Boo has 17.5 million Facebook fans!
One thing we can be sure of: Boo is without a doubt, the most famous dog alive today. He has stuffed toys made in his image, books have been written about him and he’s been featured in a lot of TV shows. His first book was so successful that it has been translated in ten languages! Boo was also appointed a “spokesdog” for Virgin America airline, which featured photos of him in an airplane along with advice for people traveling with pets.
For years, the identity of Boo’s owner was kept hidden. However, in 2012, journalist Mike Isaac finally solved the mystery. It turns out that Boo belongs to Irene Ahn, a finance lead at Facebook. Knowing this, I can’t help but think that perhaps a few Facebook engineers helped Boo go viral a little bit faster. I’m still a very huge fan though and even if Boo got help from his mom’s work friends, there’s no denying that he is really cute! Whether it’s his haircut or his clothes, millions of his fans will agree that there’s definitely something special about him.
