Tom Hanks and Monty.

Tom Hanks and Monty.

The star of such movie classics as “Apollo 13” and “Forest Gump” shared with his Twitter followers the loss of his dog Monty on January 19, posting the above image of his beloved pet with the caption “Monty. Deep brown eyes, noble demeanor, finest dog ever. A sad day. Goodbye Big Boy.”

The Dog Files would like to express our sadness in the passing of Monty. RIP.
