Losing a beloved pet is like losing a family member. For dog lovers, in particular, the loss of a faithful pooch can be heartbreaking.

Sadly, the late John McCain’s family has said goodbye to their dog Burma following a “tragic accident” at their home in Arizona.

“To all who loved our dear Burma,” Cindy McCain, the former senator’s wife, wrote on Instagram. “She now frolicking with the one she loved most in heaven now.”

The loss of Burma comes too soon after the tragic passing of McCain on Aug. 25, 2018. He lost his battle with cancer at the age of 81.

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. 💔

Burma often showed up in McCain family photos on social media. Whether it was at Meghan’s wedding or just playing around the house, Burma was never far away.

“She would never leave his side,” Meghan said. “Followed him around every single step when he would walk around our ranch, slept by his side every night.”

“The love this dog gave him was equal to a family member,” Meghan McCain explained in her post. “I love you Burma and hope you’re in heaven jumping into creeks, chasing sticks and fish with Dad.”

We have no doubt that she is. It’s clear this dog’s relationship with her master was something truly special.

Rest in peace, Burma. You will be missed by all who loved you. Our hearts are with the McCain family as they grieve the loss of their sweet pup.

    Agreed Erich. Dogs are humans best friends for the most part. My Cousin Claney raised a wolf on the farm and used to let us play with him.

    John McShame reported for duty in Hell. He was the best Friend Obama ever had. Both of them were ShitBird Traitors to America. McShame personally flew to Syria to finish paying ISIL for their assistance. Obama is the one who negotiated the transaction. Hopefully if the AG does his job, they will remove McShame from where he is buried and throw him into a landfill where he truly belongs.

    I know that the dog will report to a Dog Park in Heaven, but he won’t be reunited with McShame.

    What happened to the dog? I liked the pic of No Name wearing a cover up for his ankle monitor.

    Come on people, show some respect and compassion. Whether you agreed or not with McCain’s politics, he still fought for this country and suffered greatly for his service. I agree this was not newsworthy, but please don’t use this as an opportunity to destroy a deceased person’s family any further. To do so is just cruel folks. I’m not a McCain fan either, but I did/do respect him for his willingness to put his life on the line for my country. Thus, I would never wish for him to be nor say he was in hell.

    It doesn’t make him a good person just because MCCain served in the military! Ok he did 1 good thing, this doesn’t cancel out the 100 Bad things he has done to America and American People. It just doesn’t work that way in real life.
    He’s in Hell because he was a liar, traitor to USA and basically selfish person 99% of the time.
    Have no compassion for a really evil person! But anyone can distort things in their mind.
