The touching goodbye was delivered in Smith’s renowned geek fashion with references to Game of Thrones and quotes from Doctor Who. Fans familiar with those shows understood just how powerful his message was.
Shortly after the post, Smith gave an update saying that Mulder had passed. Though Smith was in pain, a pain that any dog owner who has had to say goodbye to a friend can relate to, he encouraged people to hold their dogs close. He also suggested that people who aren’t dog owners consider becoming one. In Smith’s words, “It’s all love.”
