The Season 9 premiere of Vanderpump Rules is only a week away, and while the buzz surrounding the new season is abundant, Lisa Vanderpump is, unfortunately, grieving the loss of a beloved pet.
The Vanderpump Rules leader is well known for her avid love of dogs, dog rescue efforts, and the pampering of her own pooches, so the loss of her dog Avery has been heartbreaking.
Before announcing Avery’s passing, Lisa revealed on social media that both of her golden retrievers, Avery and Rumpy, were experiencing health issues. However, even if Lisa was aware of Avery’s ongoing health issues, it doesn’t make the news any less devastating.
