Wheel of Fortune has been on the air for nearly five decades, and not often do I watch it with anticipation of crying but this time it worked the waterworks on me.

Last week, the story was flipped. Pat Sajak shared amazing news that his son, Patrick, had graduated from medical school. He proudly announced that his son became a doctor! This week, he shared the heartbreaking announcement that his family had to say goodbye to their dog of 12 years, Stella. When he revealed the news to Vanna White and the entireĀ Wheel of Fortune audience he noted that, “It was a very sad time for the Sajak family.”

If you missed the announcement, or just want to feel like you’re chopping onions, here is the video.
