12 Celebrities and Their Pets


Oprah Winfrey

Named World's Best Celebrity Dog Owner by the readers of The New York Dog and The Hollywood Dog magazines, Oprah Winfrey plays mommy to cocker spaniels Sophie and Solomon and golden retrievers Luke, Layla, and Gracie. The five canines live with Winfrey in a super-renovated condo (formerly four separate units) in Chicago, where the talk show host has defended her pets against noise complaints and the building's pesky one-pet-per-unit rule. Oprah also gets props from pet lovers for introducing her audience to Cesar Millan, aka "The Dog Whisperer," and his revolutionary dog-training methods.
