    I would imagine they were put out to pasture and subsequently died....?

    Buried in the blue peter garden next to percy thrower.

    I think Shep went to live with John Noakes to see out his days , but cannot think of the name of the other dog .

    Between 1986 and 1988, the BBC produced a programme called Fax!, which answered questions posed by viewers. One question was "Whatever happened to John Noakes and Shep?" Noakes and his wife appeared on the show on 20 January 1987 to reveal what he had been doing since retiring from television, and during the course of the interview, Noakes tearfully revealed that Shep had died just days beforehand.[3]

    I seem to remember John Noakes wasn't allowed to take Shep with him when he left as it was a blue peter dog. The dog he had after that was called Skip........

    not wogan , ooops

    Noakes left Blue Peter on 26 June 1978.[2] Popular belief has it that he was not allowed to keep Shep, but although the dog was indeed legally owned by the BBC, Noakes was permitted to keep him. However, according to the behind-the-scenes book Blue Peter The Inside Story (by Biddy Baxter, the show's longest-serving Editor), the BBC stopped giving him the special regular payments he had previously received to pay for Shep's food and vet bills (Noakes' "dog money", as he put it). This rankled him, even more so when, after Noakes had been offered lucrative work advertising dog food, the BBC stipulated that Shep could not appear in the commercial with him. In the end, Noakes did the commercial with a lookalike collie named Skip.
