The Dog Files, an online community for dog lovers, posted some sad news yesterday that I thought our readers would be interested to hear as well. Tom Hanks, the admired actor of such classics as The ‘Burbs, Turner and Hooch, and Sleepless in Seattle, announced via Twitter the loss of his beloved dog Monty.
He posted the following photo with the comment: “Monty. Deep brown eyes, noble demeanor, finest dog ever. A sad day. Goodbye Big Boy.”
We at Trupanion extend our deepest sympathies to Mr. Hanks, as we know no matter who you are, the loss of a pet is a devestation that is universal.
