Oprah Winfrey's Favorite Things: Her Pets

From Sophie to Sadie, Oprah's dogs have been like beloved children

SOPHIE

Perhaps more famous than Solomon was Sophie, the black cocker spaniel who joined the family in 1995. Oprah called Sophie "the true love in my life," and the pooch went everywhere with Mom – to the hair salon, to the dog park and especially to work. In 2008, at age 13, Sophie died of kidney failure.
