There are only a handful of dogs that have become as well known and recognisable as that of the Shiba Inu Kabosu. While you may not know this canine's name, you will recognise it as it is the furry face behind the Doge meme template and craze. As for why we're bringing this up, the owner of said dog has revealed that Kabosu has unfortunately passed away.

The news was confirmed very recently in a blog post from said owner Atsuko Sato, where she confirmed Kabosu's passing and revealed that folk in Japan can attend a farewell party this Sunday.

Kabosu has been battling cancer for nearly two years, but still managed to reach the impressive age of 18 years old (or 126 dog years as they say!).
