Lisa Vanderpump attended an appearance on Thursday, October 5, just hours after revealing that her second Pomeranian has died.
Just over one week after the 57-year-old Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star confirmed the loss of her dog Pinky, Vanderpump revealed that she tragically loss a second dog while attending the premiere of her new documentary, The Road to Yulin and Beyond, at the Awareness Film Festival in Los Angeles.
"To even talk about that right now — having lost two of my dogs in just a few days has been unbelievable. At this time, it’s difficult to do it," she told Us Weekly magazine.
"We’re trying to create a humane environment for dogs everywhere," she continued. "It is important for us to be here, and I thank everybody else for coming out and supporting this short documentary. But it’s been a wonderful year as well because the Vanderpump Dog Rescue Center has already adopted out, I think, 250 dogs from the kill shelters."
Vanderpump confirmed the loss of her dogs on Instagram with her many fans and followers.
"It was unfortunate timing to lose two of our furry children in six days. Pikachu was suffering the last few days so it gave us some solace when he passed," she said in a statement after the news broke. "The carers at VCA treated him with love and compassion and he is now at rest. In light of recent tragic events, it makes me appreciate even more the huge comfort that our beloved pets give to us in this very sad world."
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills will return to Bravo TV later this year for season eight.
