Oprah Winfrey is one of the most influential people in history and beyond that she is an amazing dog lover.
She has had many dogs past and present and understands how big a part of the family our dogs are. If you witnessed her heartbreak at losing her beloved cocker spaniels Sophie and Soloman as they struggled in their senior years and eventually passed on, you would understand why so many dog owners can connect with Oprah on such a deep level. It takes a true dog lover to understand the significance of losing one of our four-legged family members.
I would love to be able to talk with Oprah about all the wonderful options people have for their older dogs. I have been there, when you are heart broken at seeing your once vibrant dog struggle with the challenges of age, not knowing how to help and feeling powerless. My mission is to raise awareness among senior dog owners, letting everyone know how they can help improve the quality of life for their older dog. There are amazing, life changing options that can help extend the time you have together, so here is what i'd say if Oprah would listen.
If you feel that Oprah should do a piece on older dogs please let her know - suggest a show topic
