Martha Stewart’s Dog ‘Paw Paw’ Passes Away

By  | 

One of Martha Stewart's dogs, “Kublai Khan Paw Paw Chow Chow Chow,” passed away this Saturday at 12 years old.

Martha wrote in her blog:

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.

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.
