With great sadness Jan Pachul and Star Ray TV
announce the death of Shadow the Wonder Dog on Monday February 25, 2013 due to
strokes. Shadow was in exceptional health all her life and only became ill the
last few months.
As Star Ray TV's mascot since 3 months old, Shadow has been featured on Star
Ray TV shows over the years and has numerous credits in mainstream media. Shadow
has appeared in the Toronto Star, the National Post, on Global Television and
the CBC. Her last media appearance was in Now magazine. At one time Shadow was
the spokesdog for Benny Bullys pet treats.
Shadow was very intelligent and could understand several hundred words.
Shadow had unique vocalizations and motions in her own dog language depending
on how she felt or what she wanted. Shadow's natural intelligence and poise lead
to the nickname "The Wonder Dog."
A winsome personality, Shadow had befriended many in the Main and Gerrard
area of Toronto and beyond. Through the Internet Shadow had fans worldwide.
As a friend Shadow provided comfort to many people. She visited Count Ray in
hospital, cheered up a woman with cancer whose dying wish was to see Shadow one
Shadow's favourite activity was riding in the Star Ray TV truck. Shadow
somehow knew when it was time to go driving in the truck. Shadow loved chicken
and Benny Bullys pet treats. Just the mention of the word "chicken" would get
her excited, so we would spell it out to trick Shadow. It didn't take long
before Shadow learned how to spell chicken!
is sadly missed by everyone at Star Ray and all her friends worldwide.
