Ellen Breaks Down on Her Show

10/16/2007 12:48 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The usually upbeat Ellen DeGeneres was anything but on today's episode of her show -- stopping her opening monologue to give a passionate, tear-filled speech about her recent dog troubles.


After walking on to the usual applause, Ellen quieted the audience and explained that, "Today is a hard day for me ... I am not capable of coming out and pretending to be funny when things are going so terribly wrong right now."

Wiping tears from her eyes, Ellen went on to talk about her ongoing battle with a dog rescue group that took back a dog Ellen adopted after discovering the talk show hostess had given it to her hairdresser.

Tonight's TMZ TV has all the latest on the developing story. Watch today's episode of "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" to see the rest of her passionate plea.

Ah, that's so sad. The shelter should just do a simple investigation of the new home, find it safe/unsafe, and call it a day. Why should the pooch have to go without???

It isn't "why" the agency took the dog back but "how". I adopted a dog from a Shelter and I understand their strict guidelines. All the haridresser has to do is go and "adopt" the dog herself, what's the big deal? The agency can "hold" her for them until they are properly screened. If they don't pass the screening process, they don't deserve to have the dog.

Email bombing a yahoo email account is unlikely to change anything.

People really are idiots aren't they? That's rhetorical for all you email terrorists, lol
