First, Oprah's beloved Cocker Spaniel Sophie passed away late last month.

Now, Martha Stewart's Chow Chow, named Paw Paw, passed away this Sunday, Martha reports on her official blog.

Paw Paw was 12 years old when he passed.

We can't imagine ever losing Teddy!

Our condolences to Martha.

Paw Paw: I will miss him

As many of you know, my beloved dog, Kublai Khan Paw Paw Chow Chow Chow, was not feeling well in recent weeks and I am very heart-broken to announce his passing last Saturday, April 12, 2008 as he was approaching his 13th year. 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.

    Am I the only one who finds her pictures with that blog extremely creepy? It was like a fucking death album. I love my dogs, but I'd be damned if I'm going to put a picture of my dog's corpse, wrapped in a sheet and tied with a lavender bow, on the internet. Creepers.

    losing a pet is difficult. I still miss my golden ret. Bo. He was 15 years old (he had a healthy and happy life) he passed on almost 3 years ago.

    Too bad you'll lose Teddy fairly soon, Perez. It's what happens when you buy shitty mixed breeds from pet stores with unknown genetic problems.

    Aww. I lost the dog I grew up with last year. I think you have to be a pet lover to really know how much they can mean. They're like family in a big way! My thoughts are with her too.

    What a sweet tribute she gave to PAW PAW. I HEART Martha!

    How strange. We had to put down our wonderful labradoodle, Martha, on the same day that Paw Paw died. Martha was only 4 so it was a very difficult decision. No, she wasn't named after Martha Stewart, but now I know she's playing with Paw Paw.

    it's so sad when you lose a beloved pet. I too have lost a beloved dog, a rottweiler, this past December. So I know the pain she must be going through. My deepest sympathy goes to her.

    First Martha Stewart's dog, then Cameron Diaz' father…you know these things come in threes. Here's hoping you round out the trio.

    but Paw Paw is probably in a better place now.

    38

    My thoughts are with you Martha. Everyone who has or had a beloved pet knows too well the agony when they leave us. Pets give their humans unconditional love. They dont care if your feeling fat, lost your job or are having a really bad day. What we can do in return is give them a quality life. This you did Martha and Paw Paw knows that.

    Re: butt
    Butt, you are a stupid ASS-HOLE, no wonder you call yourself "Butt". That is as low as you can get for wishing death on an adorable, innocent, happy pet such as Teddy. Teddy is more happy than you will ever be, you stupid sad idiot.

    I know what she is going through I love my Princess the day after christmas it's just like losing a loved one some people don't understand that and think it's funny and stupid but it's so hard when it's you're pet you loved for so long dies. I am still having a hard time and it's been almost 4months now I have made picture frames and got a gold charm of my Princess (picture's on gold) helped a little but still hurts.

    56

    she put the dog to sleep. she needs to quit faking like it peacefully went to sleep on it's own. Euthanasia is merciful. I guess Martha doesn't want to be known as a killer. I put animals to sleep every day. Because they are ill. This dog doesn't look ready to die in the pics. Just sayin

    Poor Martha! A big lump in my throat as I read this one. Paw Paw had a great life and she can be proud she was an excellent companion for him. He isn't gone Martha, he just ran ahead over the rainbow bridge. He'll be there waiting for you someday. With Love, a big big fan.

    What a great dog. Waited for her to get out of prison and everything. I still think it was an associate to the insider trading because it didn't call the police, but it doesn't matter now. RIP.

    So devastating. My baby is 4 years old, and I can't even fathom the day I'll have to deal with losing him. Stay strong Martha, and RIP Paw Paw! XO

    This is such awful pain. My toy poodle lived to be 17 1/2, and I still wonder if I could have done something different to prevent her death. I'd had her my entire adulthood, and oh God, I thought I'd die when she did. (P.S., I now have a rescued miniature poodle who is fab.) Life does go on, just in a different form.

    You are so full of it! You make fun of people's grandparents, parents, and loved ones…yet you shed a tear when someone's dog passes away. That's what is wrong with a lot of people in this country. Have we forgotten the value of a human life? I wish the outrage directed at Michael Vick could be directed to murderers, rapists, and pedophiles. I love animals, big and small, but I also love my fellow human. Shame on you for being so rude to the elderly, yet making a big deal out of a dog.

    Re: tommy
    My guess is you are a bitter, young, acne scarred, ugly male, who has never been laid, and most likely never will be unless you pay for it by some whacked-out crack whore. You jack-off to gay porn and hate yourself for it. You despise your mother, but would fuck her anyway in sheer desperation. I wouldn't be surprised if you've taken a few animals up the ass as well, after all, it must get tiring using the 'palm' sisters. So sad, they euthanize animals yet allow scumbags like you roam free.
    I'm right, aren't I dick wad…. ;)
