Difficult News to Share

On the June 7th episode, Sajak shared the sad news. At first, he tried to keep it light by revealing that he and Vanna White had pets with the same names. But then, he revealed the loss of his dog, which ended the episode on a sad note.

“You and I have a lot of things in common,” Sajak said to White. “We both have two kids, we both have the same unusual blood type, but the weirdest of all is we both independently, without either one knowing it, named our pets the same name. Your cat … Stella. And then we had a dog named Stella.”
