Not sure if this counts as "world news", but RIP Doge :(

Edit: Kabosu's owner had this to say on Instagram:

To all of you who loved Kabosu,

On the morning of the 24th of May, Kabosu crossed the rainbow bridge. Thank you all so much for your support over the years.

She went very peacefully without suffering, as if falling asleep while feeling the warmth of my hands petting her.

Thank you all so much for loving Kabosu all these years.

I am certain that Kabosu was the happiest dog in the world.

That makes me the happiest owner in the world.

I would like to express my deepest appreciation to everyone who has sent us much love to us.

This should be so very wrong, but somehow it feels... appropriate... a meme of true peace.

RIP Kabosu.

[–] WhatAmLemmy 22 points 1 month ago (1 children)

Poor taste, yet mandatory.

[–] psycho_driver 9 points 1 month ago

Much like the internet itself.

very appreciate

[–] FlyingSquid 145 points 1 month ago (1 children)

I'm surprised she was still alive. And 18 is an amazing age for a dog, even a smaller one like her.

[–] [email protected] 54 points 1 month ago (1 children)

She looked great for her age too, her owner really took care of kabosu.

[–] FlyingSquid 52 points 1 month ago (1 children)

It's good to know she died well-loved. That's how every dog should die and it's heartbreaking that so many don't.

Get along little doge.

A wave doesn’t die, it returns to the sea. Kabosu’s echo will ring louder than the barks they made on this earth.

Rest in power, friendo.

[–] sunbytes 40 points 1 month ago (1 children)

Well now what is dogecoin backed by?

Surely it loses all value now doge herself is dead?

[–] [email protected] 42 points 1 month ago (1 children)

Don't worry friendo, Dogecoin is just as stable and sound a currency as it ever was....

much sad, lots good memories

very RIP

[–] WindyRebel 29 points 1 month ago (2 children)

RIP pup! Here’s my two knuckleheads, Riolu (black and tan with creeping tan) and Jango (red)

[–] die444die 16 points 1 month ago* (last edited 1 month ago) (1 children)

Is Riolu not a sesame?

Edit: here’s mine, Nibbler (black and tan) and Yoshi

[–] WindyRebel 3 points 1 month ago (1 children)

Aww! They’re adorable! Love the names too!

No, Riolo isn’t a sesame. There are similar color schemes but I think the breeder was a shady backyard breeder. She was all black and tan and then the head got that tan/red color as she aged.

[–] die444die 3 points 1 month ago (1 children)

Ah okay I couldn’t see her back so it just looked sesame. They’re cute as heck.

thank you for paying pup tax upfront

[–] WindyRebel 2 points 1 month ago

It is my genuine pleasure!

[–] [email protected] 25 points 1 month ago

Genuinely has to be in the top 5 most iconic memes of the internet age. RIP Doggie ❤️❤️❤️ thanks for the smiles

[–] Scotty_Trees 24 points 1 month ago (1 children)

Ngl, I'm tearing up to this. 18 is a long time for a dog, some breeds don't typically live passed a handful of years. I've got a lil pup of my own and this just reminds me to be grateful for having him while I still do. Gonna give him some extra happy pets today while I try not to tear up. God I love dogs.

[–] AngryCommieKender 3 points 1 month ago

They are testing the life extension drugs on our bigger breeds of dogs currently. If the drugs work, then even the bigger breeds could live till 20 or so. It will also pave the way for human testing, since that's much harder to get past the FDA

[–] Badeendje 21 points 1 month ago

But he will love forever in our collective consciousness. RIP.

[–] [email protected] 20 points 1 month ago

Wow, much memory, very live on in our hearts

[–] Fedizen 16 points 1 month ago* (last edited 1 month ago)

RIP to the good girl

[–] [email protected] 16 points 1 month ago

much sad. very grieve. wow

[–] [email protected] 14 points 1 month ago (3 children)

I remember seeing this dog die before. Wtf dejavu

[–] [email protected] 28 points 1 month ago

You might have been confused with Cheems, which died last year

[–] Zehzin 8 points 1 month ago (1 children)

You might be thinking of Longcat, who died a few years back. Or maybe Gabe the Dog

Not world news, but I'll make an exception. Sleep well, puppers.

Will pour out some dogecoin for my boy -- RIP Kabosu

[–] feedum_sneedson 3 points 1 month ago

Never really understood the meme, because it's just a normal picture of a normal dog. However, thanks for being a dog there friend.
