Oprah Winfrey's puppy Ivan dies from parvo
Awful news from Oprah Winfrey's camp: One of the two puppies she recently adopted has died. Entertainment Tonight says Ivan, a golden cocker spaniel mix, passed away last week from parvovirus.
Ivan's sister Sadie was the subject of the March 6 episode of Winfrey's show, in which the queen of daytime talk shows announced she had adopted her and that Ivan and brothers Webster and Gordie were available from an animal shelter. Winfrey eventually adopted Ivan, as well, but ET says Sadie also has parvovirus, an infection that causes diarrhea and vomiting, but she is in stable condition.
"I'm saddened by his passing though we only had him for a weekend," Winfrey said about Ivan. "I remain hopeful that Sadie will pull through."
