Andy Cohen has said goodbye to his beloved fur baby, Wacha, after “random signs of aggression” and “an incident a few months ago,” which may have involved his son.

In an effort to protect his 1-year-old, Benjamin Allen Cohen, the Bravo personality announced via Instagram on Friday that his “first baby” is now in a new “permanent home.”

Along with a video of him playing with Wacha on the sidewalk, the 51-year-old wrote in a heartbreaking post:

“I’ve put off sharing this news as long as I could. As you may know, Wacha is my first baby, my beautiful rescue puppy. He is my pride and joy. When he came into my life, my world changed. Over the nearly seven years that I’ve been blessed to have Wacha in my life, we have worked to address some occasional random signs of aggression. No effort was spared in the attempt to help Wacha feel adjusted. After an incident a few months ago, numerous professionals led me to the conclusion that my home is simply not a good place for him. Keeping him here could be catastrophic for Ben and worse for Wacha.”

Wow. We can’t imagine how hard this must be on Cohen. Luckily, the Watch What Happens Live host reported that Wacha is “thriving” in his new home and they “still see each other.” He continued:

“The good news is that he now has a permanent home with his second family, in the place he lived every single time I went out of town. He is thriving. We still see each other, but a piece of my heart is gone. I miss his weight on top of me first thing in the morning. I miss him waiting for me in front of the shower. And I miss the sound of his paws on the floor when I come home. I am not the same person I was when I got him.”

But even though they have still been able to see each other, Andy acknowledged how much he misses him at home:

“My dog changed me. He opened me up to love.. to caring… and ultimately to having a family. When I think of him – let’s be honest, when don’t I think of him – it’s with the clarity that we were meant to come into each other’s lives exactly when we did, and that he’s happy, which gives me peace of mind. We did rescue each other. Thank you, Wacha.”
