15. Oprah Winfrey
Dog lover Oprah Winfrey lost her golden retriever in 2007. Two-year-old Gracie died when she choked on a ball while out for a walk with her caretaker.
“This lovely little runt whom I’d brought home sick — on his first visit with her, the vet told me to return her and get my money back — did more living in two years than most dogs do in 12,” Oprah wrote in the August 2007 issue of O, The Oprah Magazine.
