Recently Oprah talked about how great she was for adopting some puppies from a local PAWS shelter.  Well, one of those puppies died.  It’s the third dog that has died in Oprah’s care since 2007.

Ivan died last Wednesday after coming down with Parvovirus, a virus common to dogs which is fatal roughly 80 percent of the time, according to Wikipedia

Winfrey has lost several dogs the past few years; Gracie, her golden retriever, died in 2007 after choking on a ball. Her cocker spaniel, Sophie, died last year of kidney failure at the age of 13.

All right, so it’s not Oprah’s fault.  It’s a string of bad luck, and she probably isn’t killing her dogs for amusement and to harvest their pelts.  And puppies dying is about the saddest thing in the entire world, so I kind of feel bad for even bringing it up.  I should really change the subject.

Hey, how about Michelle Owen, the woman in Indiana who inadvertently turned herself in for having sex with a beagle?  Owen said that the videos “were just something she did when she was drunk and barely remembers it,” adding that she tried to “delete them the next day when she was sober.” C’mon, who hasn’t been there before?  Hello?  Just me?
