Thompson Road is one of my favorite place to go for a walk.
Why? It’s a beautiful and serene walk. (If you missed our blog post about Thompson Road, click here.)
Typically, we hardly see anyone walking (except for horses and cows) and from time to time service farm vehicles will pass us by. Lately, many are walking this road and about 4 to 5 cars pass us by. Why? a well-known celebrity owns a vacation home on this road. What’s great is that she keeps a very low profile when she’s in town.
Well, last Friday 1/4/13 as we stood on the side of the road, waited for the cars to pass us leaving her bed & breakfast compound (typically just workers) but unexpectedly one of the car passenger was Miss Oprah. She rolled down her window, waved and smiled at us. Just imagine my mom’s reaction. ME just Golden Happy (my wish came true from this blog post).
Photo below was taken from my mom’s iPhone immediately after our encounter with Miss O.
The color instagram version of the photo was posted on my FB page last Thursday.
Many Golden Thanks to Miss O for a memorable walk at Thompson Road.
Lots of Golden L♥VE n Woofs

Hey Sugar, Jet here.
Wowee wow wow! How cool is that! Of course Miss O could NEVER resist saying hello to you!!!
Well how cool is that!!! Oprah is one very special lady 😀
Waggin at ya,
Of course she rolled down the window and waved at you. I’m surprised she did not stop and ask for your paw print. I guess she was just to awe struck by you.

Whoa! Oprah like the famous lady?! And she said hello to you? Well, of course she would have to say hello to such a beautiful pup 🙂 That is so cool, Sugar!
I bet Miss O had her driver leave the house just so she could stop and wave at YOU!!! I hear she’s a big fan of yours!! Love your digging at the beach shots today on Facebook 🙂
We bet seeing you was the highlight of her trip to her Maui home Sugar! Maybe one of these times she’ll invite you to play with her dogs too!
Amber DaWeenie says
Wow…..Now you’re a celebrity too, Sugar!
Wow, Miss Oprah knows a star when she sees one. That would be you, Sugar!

Gizmo (@GizmoGeodog) says
Me, I meet squirrels on my walk…you meet Oprah…must be a lucky Golden thing 🙂
Oh my goodness, Sugar you are living quite the life!!
Oprah is a dog lover, so this does not surprise me one bit.
