Give him the exercise he needs. All pets need regular exercise to stay fit and to release their energy. Without it, your pet will begin to act out. Young pets that do not get enough exercise are more likely to develop negative behavioral issues that lead many to give up their pet.
“Boo, we love you with all our hearts and will miss you until the day we meet again,” the post concludes. “Have fun running around with Buddy and creating adorable mischief wherever you guys go.”
Rest in peace, Boo. You will be missed.
