A Giant of the Internet is Gone

Cheems, one of the most famous dogs on the internet, is dead after a battle with cancer. The viral meme dog died Friday during a surgical procedure according to his owners, who say he fell asleep during surgery and never woke up. Cheems shot to fame way back in 2017 when an awkward photo of him went viral, sparking a meme that is still shared to this day.

May he sleep well in the bosom of Harambe.
