After a rise to fame that included several commercials and appearances on T-shirts and other apparel, Spuds was retired in 1989 partially due to pressure from groups that alleged the company was marketing him to children. It was also revealed that the real-life dog was actually a female named Honey Tree Evil Eye. Just before her 10th birthday in 1993, she passed away from kidney failure in Illinois.
