Oprah: My Sick Pup Sadie Is Hanging In There

Mar 20, 2009 Author: Admin | Filed under: Oprah

 

Oprah1 Oprah Winfrey described Friday the harrowing ordeal she has gone through with her dogs since announcing the adoption of Sadie, a cocker spaniel puppy, two weeks ago.

Sadie’s littermate, whom Winfrey took home that day, died within a week from the Parvo virus, as PEOPLE Pets reported earlier this week. The media mogul said on her show Friday that Sadie is still "hanging in there."

"I went through it all," Winfrey said, describing the symptoms of Parvo. "You can’t get it. If you could get it, I would have it."

Sadie appeared via a videoconference with veterinarian Dr. Alexis Newman of the Arboretum Animal Hospital in Downers Grove, Ill. Newman said Sadie was about 80 percent recovered after being close to death on Sunday and Monday.

Sadie has stopped vomiting and is now eating warm chicken meat and should be home in a few days, Newman said. Winfrey explained that Sadie is being kept in isolation and even her toys will have to be burned.

Newman said that the Parvo virus is everywhere and that the dogs may have been exposed in the ground in Chicago after the snow melted. She theorized that Ivan, who got sick first, contracted the virus first. She said that Sadie had lost half a pound throughout the ordeal.

"We had some . nights where we thought she might not make it," Winfrey said.

Winfrey showed pictures of her introduction of Sadie to her audience two weeks ago. During that show she brought out three of Sadie’s brothers who were still awaiting adoption at the PAWS shelter.

"That’s she and Ivan kind of kissing, shouldn’t have done that," Winfrey said of the day she had the puppies on set.

Shortly after the show Winfrey flew her dogs to California. "Ivan had really one great day playing with the big dogs and playing with Sadie and then he got sick," Winfrey said. Ivan died March 19, she said. She added that her other dogs were "fine" because they had been vaccinated.

VP Joe Biden Shushes Wife Jill Biden On Oprah

Feb 18, 2009 Author: Admin | Filed under: Oprah

Oopsoprah!  Jill Biden, wife to Vice-President elect Joe Biden, let it slip that her husband was offered his pick of jobs under Obama. Read more and see video of Joe Biden shushing Jill Biden below.

On the Oprah show, Jill Biden said President-elect Barack Obama had given her hubby, Joe Biden the choice of being secretary of state or vice president. Joe Biden attempted to hush his wife as soon as she had spoken, with a loud “shhh!”.

The Bidens were making a surprise appearance on Winfrey’s show, which was being recorded at the Kennedy Center for broadcast later Monday on the eve of the inauguration.

Joe Biden said he only accepted Obama’s offer to be his running mate after talking it over with “Jilly,” his pet name for his wife. Mrs. Biden said she told him vice president would be better for the family.

“If you’re secretary of state, you’ll be away, we’ll never see you, you know,” she said. “I’ll see you at a state dinner once in awhile. But I said, if you are vice president, the entire family, because they worked so hard for the election, they can be involved. They can come to our home. They can go to events, they can be with us all the time. And that’s what’s important to us.”

The vice president-elect didn’t really talk about wife Jill’s comments, but said he didn’t immediately take the vice presidential offer since he wasn’t sure it was the best place for him to serve. But Biden, who ran against Obama in the Democratic primary race, said he agreed after getting some assurances from Obama about his role.

“This is a partnership,” Biden said. “He’s president of the United States, but as I said to him when he asked me, I said, `Barack, don’t ask me unless the reason you’re asking me is, you’re asking me for my judgment. I get to be the last guy in the room before you make every important decision. You’re president. Any decision you make, I will back.’ “

“He said he wanted to have a confidant and somebody who wouldn’t be a yes man. He’s pretty sure about that” last part, Biden said with a laugh.

And of course we all know that the secretary of state’s job went to another Obama campaign rival, Hillary Rodham Clinton.  Bet she loves to hear she wasn’t first choice!
