Lisa Vanderpump Offers an Update on All Things Giggy: "We Worship Him"
The RHOBH and Vanderpump Rules animal lover opens up about the beloved pooch.
Sorry, Ken Todd! Lisa Vanderpump's real one, true love just might be Giggy, her beloved Pomeranian and the king of her menagerie of pets. And when The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills animal lover recently stopped by The Daily Dish offices, she offered an update on how he's faring these days in the wake of a health scare last year while on a family trip to Aspen.
(Above LVP dishes even more on Giggy.)
"Giggy actually had a real hiccup last February — and February through about August, where he was being monitored very closely. He spent a lot of in hospital, which was very difficult for us because he hated being left behind. But he was kind of in an incubator. He was on a heart monitor. We actually have a pacemaker waiting for him — a tiny, tiny little pacemaker, if he does need it," she said.
LVP then broke down how he was doing around that time last year -- and where things currently stand with the Gigster, who also has alopecia which is why he wears clothes (more on that in the video below).
"He was having a lot of fits. He wasn't doing well. He doesn't do well flying anymore because even when the plane's at 35,000 feet, the altitude in the cabin is still like it's 8,000 feet. And he struggles with that, so we've made a decision that he really, he's got to be almost wrapped in a blanket," she said. "He does come out. He's still in the restaurants with us most nights. He's good, but we just [don't] like to risk him when we travel."
The Vanderpump Rules boss confirmed that Giggy is about 9-and-half years old these days, adding, "He's still a young little Gigolo, but we've just got to be careful with his little heart. We worship him. I mean, Ken's even more obsessed than I am."
