After ‘The Most Photographed Dog In Bruges’ Passes Away, People Are Sharing Photos Of Him Throughout The Years

If you’ve ever visited Bruges, a city in Belgium, and walked passed the Côté Canal B&B, chances are that you’ve fallen in love. No, not with a person or the lovely architecture, but with an adorable labrador blissfully napping on the windowsill. And believe me, you’re not the only one. Over the years, a puppy named Fidel who greeted passersby from the window became quite a celebrity.

Recently, a Twitter user named Amy spotted ‘the most famous dog in Bruges’ for the first time

People just couldn’t stop photographing the adorable dog resting on a pillow with his feet up in the air.

One could say he was one of the most amazing sights for visitors taking a boat on the Côté Canal.

However, as a viral tweet recently posted by a woman named Amy showed, many outside of Bruges have never heard of Fidel. Yet, they were left in awe of the ridiculously photogenic puppy, too.

Then the sad news about Fidel was discovered. In 2016, the famous dog passed away at the age of 12.

People were heartbroken that they will no longer be able to witness “the most photographed dog in Bruges” themselves anymore. Nevertheless, Fidel will continue to live through the photographs many people have taken of him. To remember the puppy, people began filling the Twitter thread with the pictures they took of him throughout the years. It’s clear that even after his death, Fidel brings endless joy to both his owners and strangers from all over the world.

After hearing the news, people were prompted to share the photos of Fidel they took through the years

I am very pleased to say, that I am one of the thousands who took photos of Mr Fidel. Very sad to hear that he's passed - but oh, what a wonderful life he must have had. <3
