3 The "Suite Life" family pays tribute to Bubba. 3
It’s a very sad day for the entire Disney Channel family, and that’s because Dylan and Cole Sprouse’s beloved childhood dog Bubba has passed away. Dylan took to his Instagram to post a precious tribute message to his pet, and share just how important Bubba was to him growing up.
“Goodbye Bubba, Bubboo, Bubba the Love sponge, Old man, Stinky, Bubbi, Bubba-lo-drengi, Fatharkis, Bubbs, Baby Bubba, and Brother. We’ve called you so many names during your 12 years of life,” Dylan posted on his Instagram. “I love you and am happy to have had such a formative influence on my being. See you again in our next reincarnation.”
Not only was Bubba an important part of the Sprouse family, but he was a legend in the Disney Channel community. The twins’ friends and former “Suite Life” co-stars like Debby Ryan, Brenda Song, and Ashley Tisdale commented on the Instagram posts, leaving heartbroken messages.
“Oh no! Bubba! I’m so sorry Baby D!” Brenda posted, as Debby commented with a black heart emoji. “Nooooo ????????,” Ashley cried.
If you’ve ever lost a pet, you know just how difficult it can be to say goodbye to a friend who has been with you throughout your childhood. Plus, a dog with that many nicknames is surely the most loved.
To pay our own tribute to Bubba, we’re rounding up some of our favorite photo of him with the twins in the happiest of times.
He was an incredibly stylish dog, clearly.
Bubba even starred in magazine posters with the twins.
There’s no denying that the Sprouses love their pups.
Bubba will be severely missed, and our hearts go out to Dylan and Cole.
