The Fuller House cast is mourning the loss of a beloved member of their TV family, after the show’s golden retriever, Cosmo, passed away unexpectedly.
A statement from the Netflix show was shared to Twitter, which revealed that the TV family’s “faithful” dog passed away after suffering complications from surgery. Cosmo’s death comes only a few weeks after the show’s final episode was filmed.
“We’re sad to share that the Fullers’ faithful dog Cosmo, who grew up on our set, passed away after complications from surgery. There will never be another quite like our boy. We’ll miss him forever,” the statement read. The post was accompanied by a few photos of the adorable pooch.
Elias Harger, who plays Max Fuller and Cosmo’s best bud on Fuller House, paid tribute to his late canine friend on social media. The actor put together a video compilation of memories that he shared with Cosmo, and posted it to his Instagram.
“I love you, Cosmo! Two weeks before the end of @fullerhouse, I lost my buddy I made this video to honor @cosmofullerhouse,” he captioned his video.
Candace Cameron Bure, who plays D.J. Tanner on the show, also shared her own tribute to Cosmo on her Instagram. “Our sweet boy Cosmo is now running around in doggie heaven. I imagine he’s playing with Comet right now,” she wrote, referencing her character’s golden retriever from the original Full House series.
“Cosmo has been in Fuller House since the start and we are heartbroken that he passed away during surgery complications. You’ll be so missed love bug,” the actress added.
