Sharing a carousel of photos of the duo together, The Leftovers star began the caption of his tribute, writing, "I know you can't read Kuma, but thank you for being so open, making me laugh, sleeping in later than me, going everywhere by my side, reminding me to stay in the present, to let things roll off me, to have gratitude and joy for everything, even just waking up." "Reminding me to be playful. For showing patience. For not judging anyone, (except skateboards that you judge harshly). For showing kindness first, to literally everyone you meet. For being an exceptional (but not uncommon) Pitbull ambassador," he continued, also noting, "For helping save other Pittbulls [sic] like yourself by letting me tell people your story." The proud dog dad also thanked "all the hands that cared for Kuma before I got there," adding, "And an extra special thanks to ALL who work in animal rescue (usually very quietly) who make Kuma's story possible for thousands of other animals every day. You are my heroes." In April, Theroux spoke about his love for Kuma and his favorite pastime with his lovable dog while chatting with PEOPLE (the TV Show!).
