Only a few months after the death of Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), the McCain family was struck by another devastating loss.

Their beloved family dog, Burma died “in a tragic accident” at the family’s ranch on Monday, Cindy McCain announced on social media.

The late senator’s wife also posted a picture of Burma on Instagram and wrote, “She now frolicking with the one she loved most in heaven.”

Meghan McCain, the late senator’s daughter, also shared news of Burma’s passing on Instagram.

“Every time I think my heart can’t be broken any further…” she wrote, sharing a photo of her dad and the beloved family dog. “Our dog Burma was my father’s birthday present years ago and was absolutely and truly devoted 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.”

Meghan said the family considers Chesapeake Bay retrievers to be the most affection breed of dogs, and Burma gave Sen. McCain unconditional love as a member of their family.

“I love you Burma and hope you’re in heaven jumping into creeks, chasing sticks and fish with Dad,” she wrote.

Other members of the McCain family also posted photos of Burma. However, no one as of yet has provided any details about her death.

 “Today my father missed his best friend so much He came down to get her,” James McCain wrote. “Now they are together again and i know he already is sneaking table food her. Some times in life best friends need to be together even in the sky.”

Burma attended Meghan McCain’s wedding, as seen in a photo Cindy McCain shared. Senator McCain was also known to share photos and videos of his dog on his Instagram, as well.
