The Truth behind the world’s cutest dog

Boo, the intensely adorable Pomeranian has nearly 5 million fans on Facebook and almost as much internet exposure as Kim Kardashian. But, according to a take-down piece on the Atlantic Wire website not everything is as squee as it seems.
According to Mike Isaac of AllThingsD, two tipsters relayed the intel that "Boo’s adoptive human mother of the past six years is Irene Ahn, a dyed-in-the-wool Facebook employee working in a leading position in the company’s finance department. After working for Yahoo and PayPal in the past, Ahn has been with Facebook since December of 2008."
Making matters possibly more suspicious, Ahn has kept her name out of the media, Isaac writes, using a pseudonym for the Boo book and staying off camera when he did his Good Morning America spot, ostensibly "to keep all of the attention on her adorable pup." She's not responded to Isaac's requests for an interview, either.

Greetings human! How are you feeling today? Not as cuddly as me I suspect.
BetaBeat's Jessica Roy writes, "Curious, isn’t it, that Mr. Dog boasts close to 5 million fans on Facebook, where his owner’s boss is banking on that kind of user engagement? And with a powerful parent like that, he surely didn’t earn those fans through sheer cuteness alone.
However, as the writer points out, Boo is crushingly cute – who wouldn’t want to Friend him on Facebook? In fact, we’re going there right now. You?
Below, a trailer for his book. Please note: He is wearing a t-shirt for modesty's sake.
