Andy Cohen has parted ways with his beloved dog, Wacha.

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. 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. 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.

“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,” Cohen assured. “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. My dog changed me. He opened me up to love, to caring and, ultimately, to having a family,” he wrote. “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.”

Weeks after rehoming Wacha, Cohen offered an update for fans.

“I mean, he’s so happy,” revealed during Monday’s edition of Radio Andy, adding that he went to see Watcha at his new home. “I took him out for an hour walk, which is what I plan to do now, I plan to see him still. And the great thing is that, after he went back with Sherman, Sherman said there were no signs that he was depressed or feeling any kind of way.”

Cohen also revealed he talked to expert dog trainer Brandon McMillan, Lisa Vanderpump, Beth Ostrosky and his Aunt Judy about the difficult decision and according to the Bravo mogul, it was “unanimous view that I should find a very happy home for him.”
