Martha Stewart’s dog, a Chow Chow named Ghenghis Khan, was killed in a Pennsylvania kennel fire, along with more than a dozen other dogs.

On The Martha Stewart Blog, she said that she’s “deeply saddened” by the event, which occurred March 6 after a propane delivery went wrong at the kennel. Several of the dogs involved in the blast were show dogs, according to news reports.
