Lisa Vanderpump: Dog whisperer?

The Vanderpump Rules star recently added a new pup to her brood—her golden retriever Rumpy Pumpy—and she revealed that her pack of animals weren't adjusting so well to the new addition to her family.

Things seemed to have calmed down. Lisa tweeted a picture of herself in bed on July 7 with her furry children—Giggy, Lollipop, Pikachu, Buki and Rumpy Pumpy—and she tells The Dish that Rumpy "is a lover!"

But what's in a name? We wondered why Vanderpump chose the title "Rumpy Pumpy" for her canine and she reveals the name has sensual undertones. "It means playful sex!" she tells the Dish.

While Rumpy Pumpy is settling in with the family, Lisa also says her beloved Pikachu suffered a health scare over the July 4th holiday. "[It was] a horrible weekend," she tweeted. "Pikachu was hospitalized and diagnosed with Addison's disease."

But her pup has received excellent medical care—"VCA hospital was unbelievable!" she shared—and now he's safe at home. "He is back with me tonight," she says.

Oh Lisa - my little girl Petal (maltese x jack russell) was diagnosed with Addison's Disease about the same time as Pikachu.  She was very sick poor darling but is doing brilliantly now - and will have to stay on meds the rest of her life.  I have 3 furry babies and love watching you and Ken for many reasons but one is your heartfelt love of dogs. As you know - they are the most wonderful animals, a constant joy - and I thank you both for showing your affection in such an open, funny, delightful, un-filtered way. xx

I love you and Brandi!  You are hilarious!  You both need a show of your own.  I must admit when RHBH is on I only watch the two of you and when the other ladies are on- if neither of you are involved- I change the channel.  I love how real you both are.  Never mind the haters- you are absolutely fabulous!!!!
