Sammi "Sweetheart" from Jersey Shore had a dog named Abby, a cockapoo, who died last year from a stomach tumor.
"It was a very devastating and traumatizing experience. Abby was a part of my family, and it was a huge deal to say goodbye to her."
Sammi and her family were grieving from the loss of Abby and their now seemingly empty home when they got Kylie, a cockapoo puppy.
"She was a little puppy and was screeching a little bit. We were like, 'This is the dog.'"
Being the same breed, you may think the dogs were the same, but you'd be wrong.
"[Abby was] like a person, Kylie is – legit – a dog's dog. It's cool to have a bit of difference."
By "dog's dog" she means that Kylie will drink from anywhere (including the toilet) bark at anything (including much bigger dogs) and eat anything (and everything).
"She's treated like a celebrity in my family. She gets whatever she wants. My mom treats her like gold. This dog is spoiled."
Sounds like one pampered pooch.
We hope she fills the hole in your heart.
