Oprah's Special Dog ShowPublished December 29, 2008
Today Oprah aired a special show all about dogs! The media queen had special guests- both canine and human- to highlight the amazing spirit of dogs and to promote adoption.
One extraordinary canine guest was a greyhound who lost both his right legs in an accident, but has learned to walk with only two legs and still lives a full life.
Desperate Housewives star Felicity Huffman was also on the show via satellite to promote the Iams Home 4 the Holidays adoption drive. Huffman said the goal is to get one million dogs adopted through the drive and educate new dog owners on how to best care for their new pets.

Oprah also revisited a special report from last spring on puppy mills. She revealed that since that special, many horrible puppy mills have been shut down and the mill operators are being prosecuted. Enforcement levels are also being raised and the millions of people who viewed the show have been educated on the atrocities of puppy mills.
Petside applauds Oprah for using her show to highlight these important issues!
