oprah’s doggie heartbreak :(



oh my gosh i hate posting sad news…oprah winfrey lost one of her golden retrievers named gracie after she choked on a plastic ball that belonged to her older cocker spaniel sophie! oprah adopted three golden retrievers which she introduced as ‘her new family’ on her show back in 2005 – the other two are named luke & layla – all three doggies were featured on the cover of her magazine twice – she opens up about the tragic accident in the upcoming august ’07 issue of Oi ran barefoot out of the house and found the dog walker and one of my security guys pumping her chest. just as i reached them, the security guard looked up and said ‘she’s gone’ oh how sad…gracie was only about two years old!



this story reminded me about my little dog petey who passed away about two and a half years ago after choking on his food – i was devastated and still think about him on a daily basis – he was the best and such a sweet dog! my thoughts & prayers go out to ms. winfrey and please make sure there’s nothing around that your dog could possibly choke on or hurt themselves with – i’m overly paranoid when it comes to my doggies parker & fidel – i simply couldn’t bear losing another one tragically – popbytes over & out for now – xxoo
