Short-statured Instagram celebrity Loki, one of the most beloved Internet dogs, succumbs to kidney failure.
Sadly, Loki had chronic renal disease. A setback last week put the canine in serious condition. He died from renal failure on September 21.
With a very special visitor ? Loki has improved a bit since coming into the hospital last night and will be staying here for the next few days for treatment. Thank you all for your support. Your encouraging words have definitely given us some comfort in this difficult time. Loki will try his best to pull through for you guys 🙂
Loki's fans poured in their support before and after his passing. During his hospitalization, followers donated money to cover the vet bills, far surpassing the fundraising goal.
The canine fan club also posted comments on the photo updates of Loki.
This lovable pooch with an enduring smile was often seen with his sidekick, Ham the hamster, who made sure to visit Loki at the vet.
The pet community is mourning the loss of an animal that offered cheer with simple photographs. Loki's family revealed his passing in an Instagram post. And, just like them, we'll miss him forever and ever.
