Today, we are saddened by the news that Rachael and John's beloved dog, Isaboo, passed away in Rachael and John's arms in the backyard of their upstate New York home. 

We will miss Isaboo visiting and running around the studio — but the amazing memories we have of her will live on forever in our hearts and in the stories that Rach tells. 

Read Rachael's note about her sweet Isaboo below:

"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 [John] 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.

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.
