Sunny (above) and Lauren are 14-week-old springer spaniels, and they're sisters. "I've had a lot of dogs, but I have never had springer spaniels," Oprah says. "I've always loved springer spaniels."

Oprah says she contacted Paula Fasseas, founder of the Chicago-based no-kill shelter PAWS, and asked Paula to let her know if any springer spaniels come into the shelter. "They just arrived in time for my birthday," Oprah says. "[Paula] rescued these little gals from the pound. They could have been euthanized if they weren't adopted. Can you believe that? And now they're gonna go home with me."
