He said on Instagram, “I haven’t traveled in months, this is the only reason why I would hop on a plane right now.” He added after he landed, “It’s about to go down. I’m definitely a little nervous and a little anxious. Feeling a little guilty but most importantly, I’m excited.”

The New Love Was a Puppy Named Walter

Before long, Booth shared some photos of the new love in his life—an 8-week-old Golden Retriever puppy named Walter. Some fans expressed discontent over Booth’s reveal. They were expecting a woman and got a puppy instead. You won’t hear any complaints here! Seeing a personal trainer and reality star snuggled up to his new puppy is a-okay with us! Golden Retrievers are revered dogs and we just can’t get enough of them!

Tucker the Golden Retriever Recently Passed Away

Walter is not Booth’s first dog. Just two months ago Booth shared the heartbreaking news that his longtime friend and companion, Tucker, also a Golden Retriever, had passed away. Walter will never replace Tucker’s place in Booth’s heart. In these situations, love is doubled, not halved.

Walter has his own Instagram page, which is quickly amassing a large following. He already has nearly 45,000 followers. Check it out to keep up with the cuteness and see the entire video montage below.
