Fans of The Real Housewives of Atlanta undoubtedly remember when Kenya Moore tragically lost her dog and best friend, Velvet. In a heartwrenching season 6 episode, Kenya cried hysterically as she described the horrific moment she found her Yorkie dangling from a neighbor’s dog’s mouth.
“I wasn’t there to protect her. She always protected me, even though she was little,” Kenya sobbed to her aunt Lori. “Why her? Why now? How do I go on?”
The loss of a pet is always devastating, and certainly more so when the death is as tragic as Velvet’s. But Kenya allowed herself over a year and a half to grieve—and while Velvet can obviously never be replaced, Kenya did eventually find room in her heart to welcome two new dogs.
Kenya received Yorkshire terriers King and Twirl in December 2015 as a gift from then-boyfriend Matt Jordan. While Kenya’s ex is long gone, her precious pooches continue to garner tons of hearts on Instagram—and we can totally see why. Witness these two unbelievably cute pups in action:
