Oprah opened today's show by saying it was for "anybody, anywhere who loves a dog, has ever loved a dog or just cares about their basic right to human treatment." She dedicated the show to her spaniel, Sophie, who passed away on March 10, saying:
Sophie gave me 13 years of pure unconditional love. She was the true love in my life. In fact, she's been one of the greatest reasons for me to be a kinder, more gentler person.
The tribute video, which Oprah's team put together for her, is incredibly moving. See for yourself, but before you start, you might want to grab a tissue.
