So Long, Sweet Sophie: Oprah's Beloved Spaniel Dies

So Long, Sweet Sophie: Oprah's Beloved Spaniel Dies



I was so sad to hear about the death of one of Oprah's beloved spaniels, Sophie, from kidney failure. While it's certainly difficult to lose a dog of any age and at any time, her pooch lived to a ripe ol' 13 and was truly a valued "child" in the household — and at the Harpo production company. My condolences go out for losing another beloved pet so soon after the death of Gracie. See a couple more pictures of Oprah attending a red-carpet event back in 2000 with this beloved pooch in her arms the whole way when you

I was very, very sad to hear this tragic news. I had no idea Sophie was sick! Oprah must just be heart-broken! :(! I'm glad that Sophie lived a long and happy life. But that doesn't take the pain away. Heck, I'm getting teared up just typing this. I know that Sophie is still there with Oprah, in spirit. And Oprah will meet her again in heaven, hopefully very soon. Atleast Sophie has a friend up there, Gracie. I wish the Winfrey dogs and Oprah the best, and feel free to grieve in peace. R.I.P. Sophie Winfrey!

Just the THOUGHT of losing my Sake to Me sends me into tears. I'm so sorry Oprah, I know Sophie was your beloved! She just mentioned her the other week when Charlize Theron was on the show!

Your pets are an extention of your family, it's like loosing a very close member of your family. At least the dog had a great life.
