Over on X (fka Twitter), the show posted a still of Seven with Melissa McBride (aka Carol) with the caption “All dogs go to heaven. Rest in peace, Seven.” Jeffrey Dean Morgan (aka Negan) replied to the show’s announcement on X with three heart emojis — three more hearts than Negan has, we’re pretty sure.

Norman Reedus (aka Daryl) posted his own tribute to his canine co-star in an Instagram story, featuring several behind-the-scenes shots of them together. “Gonna miss [you], Seven,” he wrote. “Best TV buddy ever.”

We also heard from Lynn Collins (aka Leah, Dog’s first owner), who offered her own condolences in the form of an “Oh noooooo” and a crying emoji in the comments of AMC’s Instagram post.

Seven, a Belgian Malinois, joined the AMC drama as Dog in its ninth season.
