The Young and the Restless star Abhi Sinha, who recurs as Ravi on the CBS soap, suffered a gut-wrenching loss, and it left his heart utterly broken.
Sinha’s German Shepherd dog, Boba Fett, passed away recently, the actor announced in a heartbreaking Instagram post. Alongside a beautiful picture of Boba Fett, the actor shared a comment with his followers.
“Our hearts are broken…This past Monday, we had to lay Boba Fett to rest. We are completely shattered, and still in disbelief.”
The well-loved dog lived a wonderful life, which Sinha and his family chronicled on a special Instagram account just for Boba Fett. Fans can see the life and times of the sweet canine as they scroll through the abundance of beautiful pictures of the pooch. The performer thanked his supporters who also made the late dog “Instafamous” by following the lovingly curated account.
Sinha’s sweet pup spent the last several months of his life with fellow dog friends Max, Rooney, and Bella in what the actor described as a dog’s paradise: a five-acre ranch.
“His daily routine included jumping, ball chasing, rabbit hunting, swimming, hiking, car rides, treats and playing. As he crossed over the Rainbow Bridge, he was surrounded by the five people who loved him most and slipped away peacefully in my arms,” Abhi wrote of his pet’s last days.
Our hearts are broken… This past Monday, we had to lay Boba Fett to rest. We are completely shattered, and still in disbelief. We request that you please not ask any questions at this time as we process our grief and heal. We will provide answers if and when we are ready. He was so very much loved and the center of our world. While his life was short, it was full and rich. He spent his last few months in a dog’s Paradise on a five-acre ranch with his favorite dogs-Max, Rooney and Bella. His daily routine included jumping, ball chasing, rabbit hunting, swimming, hiking, car rides, treats and playing. As he crossed over the Rainbow Bridge, he was surrounded by the five people who loved him most and slipped away peacefully in my arms. Thank you all for following him and making him Instafamous. Thank you to our good friend and Vet, Dr. Deol @gddeol for always being available 24/7. But, thank you mostly for respecting our privacy as we mourn our tremendous loss. ???????????? With his customized Mandalorian armor, deadly weaponry, and silent demeanor, Boba Fett was one of the most feared bounty hunters in the galaxy. His character was strong, silent and brutal. Even when he appeared passive, he was capable and ruthless Despite having one of the shortest screen times, he is one of the most revered characters with one of largest cult followings. 10/18/2015 – 6/11/2018 ❤️???? @bobafett.gsd
Just over a month before he passed, Boba Fett joined Abhi Sinah in a special post to fans for May the Fourth. The picture featured the pet, who was named after one of Star Wars’ most revered characters, and Sinah, along with some Storm Troopers, a Sith Lord, and Rey. The soap star captioned the fun image, “May the fourth be with you.”
He also posted a shortened version of his Instagram post about “Bobey” on Twitter too, along with some additional beautiful pictures, including one with a lovely rainbow in the background, which is fitting for this incredibly sad time for the family.
Our hearts are broken. This week we had to lay Boba Fett to rest. We are shattered and request that you do not ask any questions during this time, as we process our grief and heal. He was the center of our world and although his life was short it was full and rich. RIP Bobey ❤️ pic.twitter.com/eCOgERrfZE

About nine days before he announced the sad passing of his dog, Abhi Sinha shared another pet update featuring all his four-legged buddies, and that post also contained a bit of bad news for Max.
“Max broke her leg, but she’s doing great and living her best life,” he wrote. While he hasn’t posted an update on Max’s broken leg, the lack of one might be good news that she’s healing properly.
Sinha’s many friends, family, and The Young and the Restless fans, reached out to him in his grief, sharing an outpouring of love as he goes through this time of loss.
