It’s a sad day for former The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Vanderpump and her husband, Ken Todd, as they reveal that their beloved dog, Giggy, has passed away.
Lisa and Ken are well known for their love of dogs, and Giggy was a huge part of that.
The couple shared the sad news that the pomeranian pooch, who was a regular fixture on RHOBH and Vanderpump Rules, passed on Saturday morning.
Lisa says they’re “devastated” by Giggy’s passing
Taking to her Instagram account, Lisa shared a series of sweet pics of Giggy with the caption, “We are devastated to say that our beloved Giggy has passed away this morning. He was truly loved, and we know how many of you loved him too.”
The post continued, “Our sweet Gigolo was such an incredible, unique dog, but mainly, because of him, we started The Vanderpump Dog Foundation and embarked on our mission to save as many dogs as possible.”
“He inspired us to start our work in rescue, and for that we will always be grateful. Giggy’s legacy will live on, through every dog @vanderpumpdogs saves. Thank you all for your support. Rest In Peace Giggy, we love you. – Ken & Lisa,” the caption concluded.
