Not a good thing: Martha Stewart’s dog Paw Paw dies

martha.jpgPour a little kibble onto the floor. Martha Stewart’s nearly 13-year-old dog, Paw Paw, died of renal failure Saturday, according to the Associated Press.

The Bedford resident used her blog to thank commenters for their well-wishes, post photos of the adorable pooch and grieve a bit. Turns out one of Paw Paw’s vets works out of South Salem:


Paw Paw was a spectacular chow and an even more spectacular dog. He was always my loyal companion, displaying the most agreeable temperament. Paw Paw loved traveling with me and was always a willing model for the camera. In addition to taking part in television commercials and several national print ads, he has been part of numerous photo shoots and is a familiar face on my television show, in my magazine, and on this blog. Paw Paw’s veterinarians, Dr. Thomas Marsh of Fairfield, CT and Dr. Marty Goldstein of South Salem, NY also admired his easy-going nature, and caring for him was never a chore. Even in his final days, Paw Paw just stopped eating and drifted off to deep sleeps, where he now rests peacefully, and, I’m most confident, quite happily. I will miss him, always.


Hang in there, Martha.
