Meghan McCain and her family are in mourning again after John McCain‘s beloved dog died.

Eight months after the former Arizona senator passed away at age 81 from stage four brain cancer, Meghan, 34, announced in an Instagram post on Monday that his Chesapeake Bay retriever Burma sadly passed away.

The pup, who was originally a birthday present to John, had quickly become a member of the family and was a loyal companion to the late politician throughout his life and during his final days, Meghan explained.

“Every time I think my heart can’t be broken any further…our dog Burma was my father’s birthday present years ago and was absolutely and truly devoted to him,” she began the emotional post, which featured a photo of John smiling while Burma sat closely next 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,” Meghan explained. “The love this dog gave him was equal to a family member.”

In a final note, Meghan said she hoped the family’s pet was now reunited with her dad and doing the activities she loved the most.

“I love you Burma and hope you’re in heaven jumping into creeks, chasing sticks and fish with Dad. ]]>💔
