1/2 of internet’s famous corgi duo, ‘Hammy and Olivia,’ has passed away

Olivia, one of our favorite internet-famous corgis, has crossed the rainbow bridge.

In a very emotional video uploaded on November 8 by Chris Equale, the furdad of Olivia, the beloved corgi from the famous duo “Hammy & Olivia,” announced Olivia’s passing at the age of 8 due to kidney-related issues.

“Olivia passed away last night. There was an emergency and she couldn’t empty her kidneys. We didn’t want her to suffer. She passed in peace,” the owner said in the video.

“We’re crushed. She was my best friend. If you have a pet, please give it a big hug. It is a day you always know is coming but you are never prepared for it,” he added.
