RHOBH star Teddi Mellencamp’s dog died while she was out of town

Ugh, it seems like so many celebs have lost beloved dogs this year. Teddi Mellencamp, a lifestyle coach and personal trainer who stars on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, is the most recent to lose a cherished four-legged family member. On Monday, she shared the sad news on Instagram alongside a family photo, that’s above.

Us Weekly noted that Khaleesi was regularly featured on Teddi’s Instagram:

Mellencamp often shared family photos with her husband, Edwin Arroyave, and their kids, Slate, 6, Cruz, 5, cuddling with their pup. (Arroyave is also dad of 10-year-old daughter, Isabella, from a previous relationship.)

The accountability coach’s costars, including Lisa Rinna, Kyle Richards and Dorit Kemsley, were quick to show Mellencamp love after she shared the sad news about Khaleesi.

“So sorry, so sad [crying emoji],” Kemsley commented via Instagram.

Rinna added, “Oh nooooo I’m so sorry Teddi [two broken heart emojis].”

Us also mentioned that Teddi announced in September that she and her husband are expecting their third child together. I’m glad that she has something to look forward to during this terrible time. I can’t imagine how heartbroken she and the rest of her family are over whatever the awful accident was that led to Khaleesi’s passing. Losing a pet is excruciating, and I can’t imagine what it must feel like to have lost a pet a.) because of an accident and b.) when you aren’t home to be with them. My thoughts are with Teddi and her family.

    Ughhhh I feel so bad for them!! We have a 10 year old and a 14 year old dog. Every time we go out of town for anything I hold them extra tight because you truly don’t know how long you have with these sweet angels.

    Everybody give your dogs extra love today!

    I lost my 12year old beagle in early July. He had a tumor on his spleen and he lived almost a year longer than expected. He passed away in his favorite spot at the foot of my bed. Broke my heart and I still can’t talk about him without tearing up. Darn pets!

      Omg, how terrible but amazingly special for you, to be able to give him so much comfort right up to the end, I’m sure it was so hard for you. I’m not sure that I am making myself clear, just trying to convey that I’m sure that was such a emotional experience. I’m so happy that you got that extra year. The sadness when they are gone is immeasurable. I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again, why can’t dogs live a hundred years like birds and turtles?

    One of my Golden Retrievers died when I was out of town. She had hemangiosarcoma which was terminal, but she was pretty stable so I chanced a weekend trip. Dumb move. My poor pet sitter let her in from going potty, and she collapsed and died right in front of him on the kitchen floor. Coming home and realizing she was not there to greet me was the worst. I feel for Teddi and her family.

      Hemangiosarcoma is the worst. I canceled a trip to Hawaii to stay with my golden and I’m glad I did, but honestly there’s no way you could have known when it was going to happen. Once the bleed starts, you don’t know it it’s going to clot and get better or be the end. We had a few close calls and then he’d be acting like a puppy again. They told us to expect 6-8 weeks and we got 7. Just the worst.

        It is so sad. Our lab had it, and it was devastating. There’s a mushroom-based holistic treatment now, backed by clinical trials via UPenn that showed longer lives with no side effects. It wasn’t out yet when our dog had it.

    She is the WORST but I do feel bad for her. I can’t imagine losing my fur baby, especially not being there while it happens

  5. bobafelty says:

    Yeah, feel sad for anyone who loses a pet….but she’s still the worst.

  6. Charfromdarock says:

    I have no idea who she is but I love all dogs and am sad when one dies.

    I have a little white 8 year old Maltese and I wish I could put a pause button on him so he wouldn’t age and stay with me forever.

    She is the worst, but this is super sad.
