Lisa Vanderpump and her husband Ken Todd are mourning the loss of their dog, Rumpy Pumpy. According to the Daily, Mail Rumpy was a gift that Todd gave Vanderpump back in 2013. In 2015, Rumpy met another golden Avery while undergoing doggy training, and Vanderpump couldn’t help but adopt the pup.
“They go for long walks and play in the garden. They seem like a married couple and I would say it was the best thing we could have done for Rumpy. I would urge people who think of getting one dog to get two if they have the room to play, as it helps keep each other occupied. Avery is obsessed with me and chasing a ball. She is a great addition to our family. I love her madly,” Vanderpump told The Daily Dish in 2015.
We get attached to dogs as soon as they come to our house. Being around them takes our pain away. It’s heart-breaking when suddenly that lively dog is not around you anymore. Lisa and Ken are going through the same pain right now. Rumpy was one of two golden retrievers that Vanderpump and Todd welcomed into their home. Avery died back in September.
Vanderpump captioned an Instagram post dedicated to her late pup, “What a lovely boy, Rumpy passed away from cancer a few hours after we returned from London .. he waited for us. We will always love him.” “So devastated this morning…. Loss is so hard, our darling Avery passed away last night. She was Rumpy’s love, adopted at 4, she never heard ‘no,’ was the best dog ever, we were with her until the end as she went to sleep on her own. Love you furry bear R.I.P,” Vanderpump tweeted at the time.
Fans shared their love and support to Vanderpump and todd in the comments section. “Awwww so sorry for your loss. What a beauty!!” one Instagram user commented. “Oh no Rumpy I’m so terribly sorry for your loss. Thank you for sharing him with us. The sweetest boy,” another comment read.
In 2017, the couple lost two pups, but it didn’t stop them from adopting more. They were named Pikachu and Pink. Vanderpump and Todd are animal lovers and have given several pets a home over the years. Unfortunately, that has come with a great deal of loss over the years.
