What's Sonja Morgan's Connection to Uggie the Dog?
The ‘Wife remembers her beloved Millou.
Sadly for Sonja Morgan of The Real Housewives of New York, her "first kid" Millou the dog passed away on March 25, but not before leaving his bark on Hollywood.
"He was just the most gorgeous dog. He was nominated for a Golden Collar award and was up against Uggie," Sonja tells K9 Magazine about her 18-year-old miniature Poodle. "I was so proud, and being my dog he was just like ‘I'm at home' on the red carpet. It was such an honor for him to be nominated and his last hurrah really."
The Artist's Uggie was named top dog in a movie at the inaugural awards, while another four-legged Bravo friend, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' Giggy, tied Pit Boss' Hercules for the win in Millou's category, Best Dog in a Reality TV Series.
"I've just taken two portraits down from our kitchen. One was of Millou and I and they were both very fine portraits, but it was just too hard to see," Sonja continues. "I think I was like a lot of people really when I got Millou. You get a dog in your 20s, you've just bought your first apartment, you feel stable and you think you can take care of someone else…I've gone from being married to a single mom and so I grew up with him. He loved life; he was just the greatest dog."
