The dog who belonged to Senator John McCain, who passed away in August from brain cancer, has died in what is being called a “tragic accident.” McCain’s wife, Cindy, shared the tragic news of Burma’s passing on her Instagram account on Monday, writing:
To all who loved our dear Burma. She died today in a tragic accident at our beloved Hidden Valley. She now frolicking with the one she loved most in heaven now.
McCain’s daughter, Meghan, wrote:
Every time I think my heart can’t be broken any further…our dog Burma was my fathers birthday present years ago and was absolutely and truly devoted to him. She would never leave his side, followed him around every single step when he would walk around our ranch, slept by his side every night and we always said Chesapeake bay retrievers were the most affectionate breed of dogs. The love this dog gave him was equal to a family member. I love you Burma and hope you’re in heaven jumping into creeks, chasing sticks and fish with Dad.
No details have been released about the nature of the tragic accident.
Rest in peace Burma.
