Isaboo is Fine!

I've gotten several e-mails and some comments asking if Rachael Ray's dog, Isaboo, died. No! Isaboo is just fine! You people need to get TiVo! Here's what Rachael said on her talk show today: "One of the biggest losses in my life and certainly the most recent was my dog Boo." Not Isaboo. I know they sound very similar, so I'll cut you all some slack, but nothing happened to Rachael's dog.

Her previous dog was named Boo and she passed away in 2004. Rachael wrote a piece called My Girl Boo for her magazine's November-December 2005 issue. It includes some heartwarming stories about Boo and one of her favorite recipes: Boo-soto. If you're a real dog lover, be careful. It's a tearjerker.

I'm sure Rachael would feel very special to know that so many of you care about her and her dog!

  1. "You people need to get TiVo!"

    Would be nice, but instead we have you. :-)

    Even if I replayed it, I would have still thought Boo was short for Isaboo, so thanks for clearing up the dog family tree.

  2. Melissa - good point. Maybe I don't want you to get TiVo! Glad I could help.

    I also remember she did an episode of 30 MM that was dedicated to Boo and she got all choked up.

  3. Melissa, I thought the same thing as you, that Isaboo was nicknamed "boo"! That episode was very hard for me to watch with the girl who talked to the "other side". Not sure if I believe in it or not, I lost my father a little over a year ago and I don't think I would want him to be lingering around spiritually, I would want him to be at rest. Interesting though!

  4. Aww! *Sniff*. It's so hard to lose a pet.

    I actually got a bunch of hits on my blog saying "What happened to Isaboo"!

    Do you know which one she did that she dedicated to Boo? (The 30MM episode?)

  5. Jennifer - I am pretty sure it's this one. If you look at the individual recipes, they have little notes about Boo.

  6. Kristy - I knew it was going to be a different sort of episdoe when she didn't come down in the elevator! I thought she handled it well, though.
