Boo is a Pomeranian with a cute haircut who is considered “the world’s cutest dog” (yes, that’s true, google it!). It all started in 2010 when his owner created a Facebook page for Boo and started posting daily updates with Boo’s cute outfits and day-to-day adventures. It was later revealed that his owner is Irene Ahn, a finance lead at Facebook who was trying to stay anonymous for a few years.
Some say that “the world’s cutest dog” became an Internet sensation after singer Ke$ha sent a tweet that she had a new boyfriend, linking to the page in October 2010.
As of today, Boo has over 17 million fans on Facebook and growing. He has been subject to 4 successful photo books and was appointed a spokesdog for Virgin America airline, which featured photos of him in an airplane along with advice for people traveling with pets.
His latest success is an app called Boo & Friends – Spot the Difference. It challenges players to spot the difference in a series of images of Boo in order to gain points and unlock levels. Fans who achieve high scores on global leader boards will be named Boo’s BFFs.
Well that’s what we call a real star! We love you, Boo! You deserve it!
