Our beloved Isaboo passed today in her backyard in the sun in the Adirondack Mountains in New York. In our arms. Peacefully. ⁣ To my fellow Americans, we’ve lost more than 90,000 human lives and over 300,000 of our global citizens. We all feel disconnected and so many are suffering right now. ⁣ And today @johnmcusimano and I mourn the loss of a dog; a pitbull who taught us more about unconditional love, empathy, and understanding of one another than we could have ever imagined. ⁣ If you have room in your heart, your home, and your budget, I say from experience that bringing an animal in need into your home can help you become a better human being. #northshoreanimalleague @animalleague ⁣ We will open our home and our hearts to another animal in need, because that is what Izzy would want. ⁣ We’ll miss her sense of humor. Her Wile E Coyote-ness. Her energy and her game-on attitude. She was a fighter. ⁣ In the weeks to come you may even spot her as she was our only audience for the shows we’ve been producing from our home during this strange time. We just felt it right to share that this was the day she left this world and we hope we see her in the next. ⁣ Our life will be a little less sweet without our Isaboo.

In the post Ray encouraged her fans to adopt if they had the budget to bring an animal into their homes.

She remembered Isaboo who walked her down the aisle at her wedding vow renewal with her husband, saying they were in mourning, adding he was,

“a Pitbull who taught us more about unconditional love, empathy. And understanding of one another than we could have ever imagined.”

Earlier this year, after Derrick Nnadi offered to pay the adoption fee for 109 dogs, Ray decided to feed them all, offering a free supply of her dog food brand ‘Nutrish’.

Ray has always advocated for adoption and on multiple occasions has taken to social media to urge people to get adopting.

She added that they would be adopting another animal.

Rachael who had been known to take her dog to work with her shared a series of photos of the adorable puppy as well as videos of Isaboo playing outside.

She added that they would be adopting another animal as they believed it was what Isaboo would have wanted, writing,

“We’ll miss her sense of humor. Her Wile E Coyote-ness. Her energy and her game-on attitude. She was a fighter.”

They added over the next few weeks, fans would see glimpses of her in their videos that they had been filming at home.

The TV chef concluded that their lives would be “a little less sweet” without their beloved pet dog.
