“Life isn’t the same without you, Boris. You will forever be with us in our hearts and memories- you brought us so much love, protection and joy. You were such a special boy. Our hearts will never get over you. Now go run with Emma, Sydney, Gianna, Lola and Samson. My sweet Bobo,” she captioned and Instagram post.
On her Instagram Stories, Bure shared some additional details about Boris’ death.
“Boris actually passed several weeks ago from a very aggressive type of cancer. Our family needed the time to grieve him before posting publicly. He was such a love and hug (literally) part of our family,” she wrote.
Bure and her family welcomed Boris, a Rottweiler, into their homes when he was a puppy. “Oh my goodness, Boris has arrived!!!!!!! I can’t wait to get home and meet him,” she captioned a Facebook post in March 2015. Boris was about 8.5-years-old at the time of his death. The average lifespan for a Rottie is nine to 10 years, according to the American Kennel Club (AKC).
Bure said that she and her husband, Val Bure, have had five Rotties since they’ve been together.
