Paul O’Grady’s dog Buster dies

Author: Press Association

The pet, who was 14 and a half years old, had been a regular on O’Grady’s
Channel 4 show, perching on the desk throughout the programme.

Buster had been ill with cancer and was put to sleep yesterday (Thursday).

A spokeswoman said: “Paul is absolutely devastated. It all happened suddenly.
Buster had been suffering and in a lot of pain. Putting him down was the
kind thing to do.”

Buster, who had been honoured with the title of “best dog in TV” by TV Times,
retired from the show last week.

The shih tzu-bichon frise-cross had featured on a number of TV shows,
appearing first on The Big Breakfast Show and later Lily Live.

A message on the Twitter feed created for another of O’Grady’s dogs, Olga –
who was affectionately known as Buster’s sister – said late last night:
“Hate to tell you this folks but Buster died tonight. A magnificent little
dog who had one hell of a life. I’m beside myself. x”

O’Grady had pre-recorded his Radio 2 programme, to be broadcast on Sunday,
before the death of his pet.

The station said it would point out to listeners that the show pre-dates
Buster’s death.

A spokeswoman said: “An announcement prior to Sunday’s show will state that
this week’s programme was pre-recorded before the sad death of Buster,
Paul’s much-loved dog.”
