The family of reality TV show “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” are facing some tough times as the patriarch of the family, Mike “Sugar Bear” Thompson continues to experience a decline in his health at the same time the family loses their beloved dog.
According to the family’s official Facebook page on Monday, their adopted dog of seven years, China, nicknamed “Chi-Chi”, was killed in a hit and run accident last weekend. The family said their security guard found Chi-Chi, alerted the family. The family rushed to Chi-Chis aid but it was apparently too late. Honey Boo Boo and Co. found the Chihuahua mix lying in the street, spasm-ing. The family wrote on the Facebook page that they believe the dog may have been hit and killed intentionally.
Meanwhile, child pageant start Alana Thompson aka Honey Boo Boo’s father, Sugarbear, had to be rushed to the hospital after passing out at the family’s home last week. The medical scare comes on the heels of several pancreatic issues which left Sugarbear hospitalized numerous times over the past year.
On Thursday, the family announced that Sugarbear was home after spending over a week in the hospital. The family said they did find what was making him pass out, but have yet to share it with their fans. Sugarbear has been ordered not to work by doctors and is currently recuperating at home.
