She seemed much more comfortable using Gloria's methods than Ceasars! The thing about Oprah is--she is a real person--and makes mistakes like everyone else does. And she does "come clean" when she learns something different. I am hoping to see this episode and see that Oprah has learned more about the dog world--will be interesting to see.
Say what you will about the woman-like or dislike, she does alot of good in her role--maybe this will be one of those moments. We can hope.

Actually it was Tamar Geller
I know, and I would have loved to see her work with Sophie, from what she said on the show it seems like she has just cast off Sophie for these new pups. WHY would you bring new dogs into a household with an existing DA dog?! That is usually VERY stressful for the DA dog, especially because Sophie was fear aggressive. Common sense alone should tell you that it isn't a good idea.

huh--I stand corrected! However, I think she did try to find a better way to work with her dogs. And as far as bringing dogs in--I'd guess she was thinking with her heart and not her head--as many of us tend to do with puppies! I really will be curious to see her reaction to this show--wondering if she will realize she could have done better?

What I'm worried of is... she might just send all those people from pet stores to BYBs. I won't watch, I hope someone sums it up here!

Oprah is not a person like the rest of us. I actually give athletes who do stupid stuff more of a pass, because their claim to fame is sports, not public behavior, but Oprah has put herself out there on purpose as a personality and has made it clear that she wants to influence people's behavior. This is who she is and what she does. I still think she has the responsibility to educate herself before she does anything publicly like buying these puppies.

Also keep in mind that she has handlers and publicists who vet her every move and word. The puppy purchase story was beyond stupid. Personally i give way more thought to buying a toaster or blender than she gave to getting those pups.

with as much money as she has she can prolly hire each one a team of trainers. I dont give anyone a pass i wouldn't give myself. Maybe someone will ask her on her show. Either way, she is still doing a good thing by doing a show on it. You should have seen cough sigh..the one that martha stewart did on rescues. Right from the beginning she showed her show chows and stupidly untrained terriers..in all fairness one was stupid and untrained. THe other one minded very nicely.

once she does the show--if it doesn't cover BYB--I'm sure her message board would be a good place to add some info!
