Pour 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 Pawâ€™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, Iâ€™m most confident, quite happily. I will miss him, always.
Hang in there, Martha.
