Oprah Gets Two New Dogs for Her Birthday!


Oprah sure knows how to treat herself — she celebrated her 56th birthday on Jan. 29 with two new family members, 14-week-old springer spaniel siblings Sunny and Lauren! Introducing them to her studio audience, the daytime doyenne said, “I did decide, though, to get myself alittle birthday gift this year. Actually, Ithought I’d get myself two,” she says. “I want you to meet mytwo new babies.”

And babies make five for Oprah, who has long been a loud and proud mom to her furry loved ones. She told her audience that Sunny and Lauren were the first springer spaniels in her brood.The pups came from Chicago’s PAWS, a no-kill shelter where she also met Sadie, a blonde cocker spaniel she adopted last year. She asked the shelter for help finding the springer spaniels. “They just arrived in time for mybirthday,” Oprah said. “Theycould have been euthanized if they weren’tadopted.Can you believe that?And now they’re gonna go home with me.”

The world’s luckiest dogs not only found a fabulous new home, but they also got special gifts to celebrate Oprah’s birthday and their homecoming — sparkly crystal pink collars!

    The odds of her finding 2 pure-bred puppies from the same litter are actually pretty high – the rescues are usually happy to help find a specific breed from another rescue if it means a homeless pet finds a new home. Yes this happens every day – people want to make money by breeding dogs – and then when they can’t sell them, they get dumped – at shelters, rescues, vet offices etc.

    Just another example of Oprah-entitlement-type behavior… And just another example that the Oprah-types expect — in Oprah’s case, demand — that anything they say mustbe believed, no matter how unbelievable.

    I admire anyone who adopts vs. buying from a breeder. And I like Oprah, but she and her local PAWS are not very well informed to adopt out siblings. It’s just not a good idea.
