Rachael Ray’s Dog Goes Ape

By Cole

What made the dog snap? Being forced to shill for Nutrish dog food, though she secretly thinks it’s garbage? Being saddled with the putridly insipid name “Isaboo?” Whatever the cause, Rachael Ray’s pit bull almost tore off another dog’s ear recently while on a stroll with a handler in Greenwich Village.

Fortunately, Isaboo’s victim’s ear could be mostly saved, and the Rays offered to pay all the vet bills, but Rachael’s now afraid that Isaboo will graduate to people and have to be put to sleep.

So why the heck did the stupid woman adopt a pit bull if she didn’t want a blood-thirsty attack dog?

Personally, I think Ray’s vicariously asking for trouble using Isaboo to market her dog food. She’s just encouraging more people to own aggressive breeds, or at the very least, subliminally implying, “Feed Nutrish to your Bichon Frise and he’ll be taking chunks out of the mailman in no time!”

Rachael says, "Turn your dog into a potential killer like mine with Nutrish!" (Photo - Jim Wright, Nutrish/AP)

I think Isaboo’s only hope is prompt intervention by the Dog Whisperer, Cesar Millan. He’s the only man up to the task of jerking Rachael Ray out of the red-zone state of mind that compels her to incessantly annoy man and beast alike. Otherwise, she’ll end up Isaboo’s lunch, for sure.

We don’t like to see bad things happen to animals, even dogs, so I hope Ray gets on the phone to Cesar and gets help pronto. It wouldn’t hurt to give Isaboo a name befitting her powerful breed, either. Even “Sammie” would be an improvement.

    Happy V-Day right back at ya, Zappa! Hope nobody tried to slip you any chocolate.

    Wow! I’ve been told by the vet that I can be like a pitbull, but I’d never try to bite an ear off-yuck! I was bit on the butt by an overly-stimulated Magic and when my vet tried to check it I literally screamed at him. My past annual I tried to bite him and earned a “Will Bite” sticker on my carrier. That appointment was worth it! Mom can be a pitbull when provoked – check out the Palin birthday post!

    I totally agree that RR should call Cesar for help. Not every body can take up a powerful breed like pitbulls…you need a good pack leader to keep that kind of dog as pets at home.

    Rachael Ray has never struck me as pack leader material, but she better get it in gear if she wants to continue hanging with pit bulls. Just the fact that she named the dog Isaboo tells me she doesn’t have a clue what she’s dealing with. I’m kind of surprised Isaboo hasn’t bit off one of Rachael hands to show her what happens when you try to trivialize the breed.

    Hi all! I just read on a Philly news page that a woman in the Kensington section of the city lived with 7 (!) pit bulls and they found her body in the house. 2 of the dogs had killed her! When they went in they shot the 2 dogs because I guess the dogs were ready to attack the police. That’s scary to have that many of them and in a neighborhood where they could’ve killed kids and others.

  7. Tuxi says:

    Yeah, and Karen, in the linked story CT Patriot offered, Rachael’s lawyer husband RIGHT AWAY offered to pay all vet bills and costs! Can you say “C. Y. A.”?! Me thinks he was trying to keep from being in court as defendant, not defender! For all the entertaining Rach would do at her home, why would she have a dog like this?

  8. catsworking says:

    Tuxi, you could see the tabloid headlines: Rachael Ray’s dog tried to eat my dog! The Rays had to do damage control pronto.

    And Joanaroo, that story about the pit bulls is terrible! Around here, we had a law that people could only own 2 dogs, but they just upped it to 3.

  9. Sara says:

    This whole article is bullshit. I am a pit owner and know many others, its not about the breed, its about the owner and the proper sociallization. When my pits at the park, she is far more tolerant than the other dogs there. Not to mention she never starts shit, even when other dogs fuck with her. This entire article is doing nothing but bashing pits and its ridiculous! This is the kind of shit thats wrong with society. Also not to mention that the media is so unreliable and biased.

  10. Sara says:

    When it comes to the media, they misreport all the time. Half the damn time the dog they claim is a pit isnt even! Oh and by the way Dalmations kill more children every year than any other dog! But see we dont hear about it because its the firemans dog and everyone loves 101 dalmations! Cant ruin their image! Yet we have a society filled with people like you fucks who give a bad name to a breed that people take advantage of. Its the owner not the dog! PUNISH THE DEED NOT THE BREED!

    Hi, Sara. Pit bulls are very lucky to have a human pit bull like you going around the Internet defending them by calling innocent cats “f**ks.” Real classy. I haven’t been writing here long, and it’s the first time one of my posts has ever received such a strong reaction.

    I agree with you that pit bulls aren’t the only breed that can be aggressive, and it’s very unfortunate and unfair that every time one jumps the shark, like Isaboo did, it seems to make news. Isaboo happens to belong to a public figure, so it’s not the dog’s fault.

    Cesar Millan, the Dog Whisperer, had a pit bull named Daddy (who died not too long ago) who was a very gentle soul. But that’s because Cesar worked with him and guided him every day.

    I wasn’t saying that all pit bulls are bad, but the only way they are going to overcome that reputation is for ALL of them to be owned by people who know how to handle them and don’t encourage their aggressive tendencies. The chances of that ever happening are slim to none because there will always be people who want an attack dog, if only for personal protection. Unless owning them is outlawed altogether, or the owners face long jail terms for everything bad their dogs do, pit bulls and other large, intimidating dogs will continue to be exploited.

    i think those are mean things to say even though i love animals and dont want them hurt but that is mean. i dont like being mean to people or talking about them or hurting their feelings. i would NICELY suggest training

  13. catsworking says:

    Welcome, kk. I’m not sure what you think is so mean about this, and WHO would you “nicely” suggest training for? Rachael Ray or Isaboo?

    I think any human who owns a powerful dog like a pit bull should have to go through mandatory training on how to handle that dog. Not be mean to it, but not to let it go off and bite other animals or humans.

    It’s not the dog’s fault. It’s the owner’s. Dogs need a human to show them proper behavior; otherwise, they’ll just act like dogs.

    Rachael Ray obviously did not know how to handle Isaboo so she wouldn’t attack other dogs, and Rachael needs to learn how to do that. That’s not being “mean” to her. That’s just pointing out a fact.

    This is an old post, and I haven’t heard what Rachael has done to protect Isaboo since this incident.
