John Stamos already has our hearts, so now he'll just have to have our tears, too.

The "Fuller House" actor posted a sweet photo with his dog Linka on Instagram on Wednesday, indicating in his comments that she had recently passed.

German shepherd Linka was a frequent visitor to the Instagram account, often appearing with Stamos as he frolicked around the pool.

He once joked to Us Weekly about keeping the details about his dog private: "I have a dog that I love a lot but I don't talk about her publicly. She's very sensitive when it comes to press."

Fortunately, Stamos recently brought a new furry friend into the family named Freida, so they'll be able to remember her together.

Our sympathies, John!
