Short-statured Instagram celebrity Loki, one of the most beloved Internet dogs, succumbs to kidney failure.

Canadian wonderpup Loki, a Welsh Corgi, has over 700,000 followers on Instagram. His pictures show him enjoying bath time, reading books, and practicing Lion King cosplay.

Sadly, Loki had chronic renal disease. A setback last week put the canine in serious condition. He died from renal failure on September 21.

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.
