Back of 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.

Sophie is in the pet's sky now, for sure! God bless the sweet Sophie too! From Brazil, Marta Jordyn787 9 years 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! Row-D 9 years Just the THOUGHT of losing my Sake to Me sends me into tears.
