Cape Town - Local Afrikaans singer Francois van Coke said his final goodbyes to his dog Ringo in an emotional Facebook post on Monday.
He writes: "We are so sad. Our child, friend and loyal companion died yesterday. Ringo had a heart attack yesterday, and was gone immediately. Nothing will ever be able to replace him."
He goes on to say that Ringo was so much more than just a dog, and did so much in his short life.
"I will think about him every day. I can't believe he is gone," he adds.
According to the heart-rending Facebook post Francois and his wife, Lauren can't stop crying and wish that their daughter, Alex, could have spent more time with him.
