Kabosu, the Shiba Inu Who Inspired Dogecoin, Dies at 18

Kabosu, the beloved dog who inspired the creation of dogecoin and other meme tokens like shiba inu, has passed away, her owner announced in a blog post early Friday. At the time of her death, she was over 17 years old.

In a heartfelt message, Kabosu's owner wrote, "We will be holding a farewell party for Kabo-chan on Sunday, May 26th. It will be held at Flower Kaori in Kotsu no Mori, Narita City, from 1pm to 4pm."

Kabosu, the Japanese shiba inu famous for the "doge" meme, had battled leukemia and liver disease. She was 18 years old at the time of her passing.

Kabosu's viral meme picture became the inspiration behind dogecoin (DOGE), which was created in 2013 as a playful cryptocurrency. DOGE's unexpected success led to the emergence of a variety of dog-themed tokens, including shiba inu (SHIB) and floki (FLOKI), which have collectively become a significant sector in the cryptocurrency industry.

Atsuko Sato, Kabosu's owner, shared the news on Instagram, saying, "To all of you who loved Kabosu, on the morning of the 24th of May, Kabosu crossed the rainbow bridge. Thank you all so much for your support over the years." She added, "She went very peacefully without suffering, as if falling asleep while feeling the warmth of my hands petting her. Thank you all so much for loving Kabosu all these years."

Kabosu's legacy as the face of the "doge" meme and her impact on internet culture and cryptocurrency will be remembered by her fans worldwide.
