Marnie the Dog Dead - Instagram-Famous Shih Tzu Dies at 18

Marnie the Dog has sadly died.

The beloved, Instagram-famous Shih Tzu passed away on Thursday (March 5), her owner Shirley Braha confirmed in an emotional Instagram post.

“It is with much grief I share the news that Marnie passed away painlessly & peacefully in my home on Thursday afternoon at the age of 18. Her comfort had been notably declining over the past few days with little hope for improvement and she let me know she had had enough. She enjoyed her chicken until the very end,” she wrote.

“I’m grateful I was able to give this magical creature the fun and deeply loving life she wanted and deserved. I’m thankful I was chosen to be the conduit for Marnie to bring joy into the world. And I’m thankful for all the human and dog friends Marnie and I made along the way, and the strangers on the streets and on the internet, who have shown us so much love.”

She went on to say that Marnie will be buried “in a pet cemetery in LA and hopefully there will be a public memorial gathering whenever safe (due to Coronavirus).”
