There's no question this must be excruciatingly difficult on the entire family.

Aw, we're so sorry to hear this.
"My little Daddio passed away whilst we were traveling back, daddy of Giggy whom we adopted two years ago. So very sad."
Daughter Pandora also paid tribute to their pet on Twitter:
But the reality TV star breaks down in tears in a new video protesting China's barbaric Yulin Dog Meat Festival.
An estimated 10-15,000 dogs are slaughtered and eaten each year during the 10-day festival. There are some reports that pets are even kidnapped from their owners for their meat. How terrible!
Lisa and Ken are outspoken animal rights activists, and his passion really comes through in this video. Ch-ch-check out his (and Giggy's) emotional plea (below):
Lisa echoed her husband's sentiments, telling us exclusively:
"I cannot sleep at night knowing we are condoning this. And we are condoning it if we don't actively fight against it. They beat these poor animals and sever their limbs and inject adrenaline to get more tender meat. It's only been going on for a few years so it's not this ancient tradition we have to put up with. And we shouldn't."
They plan on holding a peaceful protest march to the L.A. Chinese consulate on October 4th, which also happens to be World Animal Day.
We support ending any cruel and barbaric behavior towards any animals. Stop Yulin Forever!

They weren't the only Real Housewives we chatted with!
It's probably common knowledge by now, but in case you didn't know, Lisa Vanderpump is a huge animal lover!
Best. Day. Ever!!
The adorable pom, who boasts more than 95,000 Twitter followers, suffers from chronic Alopecia which requires him to wear clothing to protect him from the sun and other harsh elements.
So of course his seven-drawer chest is filled to the brim with different custom suits, costumes, and even pajamas.

Apparently the talk show host isn't the only one wondering if the British beauty's buttocks is real, everyone else is too!
Luckily for all of us, Lisa isn't one to shy away from telling the truth! She always tells it like it is.
So, while she may not have had any butt implants, the restauranteur revealed some other surgeries she's gotten done!
Lis said after looking at some old pictures of herself:
"Now you can see I haven't had a nose job. The only thing I've done to my face is a little bit of filler. At least my ass is real, contrary to a lot of reports. Everybody says I have butt implants…I don't have a butt implant, I'm happy to offer it up for X-rays like Kim Kardashian."
While we do believe her, we hope someone takes Lisa up on that offer!
Lisa also talks about Giggy's stardom and more in the video (below)!
Lisa Vanderpump's adorable companion Giggy is the luckiest pup in Hollywood right now!
On Saturday, Lisa's sweet Pomeranian sent our tails wagging with jealously when he snagged a dinner date at PUMP in West Hollywood with the lovely Jennifer Lawrence!
The fashionable canine (we adore your purple ensemb, btw!), "tweeted" a pic of him alongside Jennifer and his papa, Ken Todd!
Gigi captioned the hilarious snap:
We never thought we'd get so emotional over a doggie meeting his daddy, but wow, this really brought legit Beverly Hills tears to our eyes.
We all love Lisa Vanderpump's incredible little pom, Giggy, but you're about to fall in love all over again when you meet his poppa!
This past Sunday, Lisa shared this vid of Giggy meeting his dad, Shooter, face-to-face, and it's really quite sweet.
We don't know for sure if Shooter even remembers his adorable little spawn, but after a few seconds of getting to know each other, they seem to get along swimmingly.
And, it turns out, Lisa and hubby Ken Todd are going to adopt him too!
Lisa posted a pic of daddy and son (below) and tweeted out:
"This guy created [Giggy] He has to come live with us."
AHH!! Giggy is going to be so ecstatic! Now, what will Rumpy Pumpy think about this though???
Watch the emotional reunion AFTER THE JUMP!!!
