I don’t make a habit of reporting on celebrity dog news, but Tom Hanks is such a good person and such a fine actor, and he and his family had a really beautiful dog.

He wrote on his Who Say page the other day that his dog, Monty, had died. “”Deep brown eyes, noble demeanor, finest dog ever,” he wrote. “A sad day. Goodbye Big Boy.”

In the space of a tweet, the depths of a lifelong bond.

RIP, Monty.
