The influential talk show host celebrated her 56th birthday earlier this year by getting herself a little gift -- well, actually make that two!
She adopted Sunny and Lauren, both Springer Spaniel puppies, from PAWS Chicago, the city's largest no-kill shelter. The black and white pups were wheeled out in a white bassinette with pink ribbons so audience members could get a good look at her new "babies."
Last year Oprah adopted Sadie, a Cocker Spaniel, from the same organization.
"She has become one of the country's foremost advocates for adopting dogs and cats from shelters," says Paula Fasseas, founder of PAWS.
