Oprah Got a New Puppy!

No she didn't get a pug. I'm not really sure why she didn't because everyone knows that pugs make the perfect pet. Maybe she just didn't get the memo, huh?

Oprah has been talking up horrible puppy mills for quite some time now and has been very outspoken on animal rights for years, so it was just a matter of time before she adopted a shelter dog herself. Oprah and Stedman went to PAWS on Sunday and picked up a female cocker spaniel puppy (maybe they were out of pugs). Oprah's cocker spaniel Sophie died last year and I'm sure that her male cocker spaniel, Solomon, was getting lonely. Oprah also has two golden retreivers and I'm sure she has room for a pug. No details yet on the name of the new addition, but I bet it will start with an 's' like maybe Susie or Stacy. Hey, Stubby starts with an 's' but it's really a boy name.

PAWS is Chicago's larget no kill humane organization. It is focused on alleviating the huge problem of homeless pets. Since its inception, the number of homeless pets killed in the city has been cut in half. Chicago is well on its way to being the largest no kill city in America and it is all due to the hard work of PAWS.
Oprah even has a room named after her at PAWS thanks to her generous sponsorship. The room showcases needy dogs of which there are many.

Maybe President Obama can come back to Chicago to get his shelter dog. If the dogs at PAWS are good enough for Oprah, then they're good enough for the President. Visit PAWS at http://www.pawschicago.org/ to check out the dogs and cats available for adoption, read about the great work they're doing, and to take a tour of their neat lfacility. If you visit PAWS in person and see any pugs there, please don't tell Mom because I like being an only child.
