It doesn’t quite match up to the horror of last month’s YouTube phenomenon created by that Britney Spears fanatic, but today’s Ellen DeGeneres Show features the beloved host weeping–actual tears!–over Iggy, a dog she rescued from a shelter last month. Instead of letting Iggy shack up chez Ellen, Ms. DeGeneres decided to give the maligned canine to her hairdresser, who has two children in desperate need of a puppy to call their own.
But…in a cruel twist of fate, the shelter rang up the daytime-TV-dancing-queen to check on the dog. Learning that it now resided with her coiffeur, the protective shelter demanded Iggy’s immediate return.
A clip of the heart-wrenching sob-sequence can be found by clicking on the link below.
