“To all of you who loved Kabosu, on the morning of the 24 May, Kabosu crossed the rainbow bridge. Thank you all so much for your support over the years. She went very peacefully without suffering, as if falling asleep while feeling the warmth of my hands petting her. Thank you all so much for loving Kabosu all these years.” Atsuko posted. “I am certain Kabosu was the happiest dog in the world. That makes me the happiest owner in the world.

Looking Back To Fun Memories

Kabosu’s fame started way back in 2010 when a photo of her with crossed paws and a slight smirk spread on Reddit and Tumblr. It made millions of people laugh and happy. The doge meme named under her  became much more popular in 2013 when Coloured Comic Sans text overlays the broken English phrases like “Wow. So scare” and “What r u doing?” surrounding Kabosu’s pictures.

A lot of people surely loved her. She made all of us happy and laughed. We all used her memes to represent our reaction and emotions with a touch of humor. 

18 years is a very old age for a dog. She surely lived a long life, and enjoyed every bit of it as she belonged to a very loving owner. The world loved her very much too.

She might not be in this world anymore, but her legacy as the Doge Meme will forever exist.
