Oprah Winfrey has lost a beloved member of her family today, as Gracie, one of her golden retrievers, choked on a plastic ball belonging to another one of her dogs and died. This hits us at TheFeed especially hard as this is exactly the way dvinson, former TheFeed employee, lost her life on Friday afternoon.
Seems that popculturekilla, who'd been hiding out in the shadows, trying to avoid a hit from any number of hip-hop celebrities he made fun of, left his chew toy out, and dvinson couldn't help herself. She popped it in her mouth, and we found her, gagging and unable to breathe. Next thing you know, she's gone.
TheFeed would like to extend our sympathies to Oprah today. We certainly hope Michael Vick wasn't involved.
