Video: A Day in the Life of Gigolo VanderPump, Real Housewives' Tiniest Star

12/28/2010 at 02:00 PM EST

We've seen a lot of pampered pooches on the various Real Housewives installments – Jill Zarin's Ginger and Dina Manzo's Grandma Wrinkles come to mind – but none even hold a candle to the series' new canine star, Gigolo VanderPump.

Smaller than a toy – and possibly even five times cuter – "Giggy," as he's called, is adored by his mom, Beverly Hills restaurateur Lisa VanderPump, as we've written here before. But did you ever wonder what it's really like to walk in his shoes? Er, paws?

On Thursday's episode, we got a peek into Giggy's lavish life and, boy, is it good. Fetch on the family tennis courts, baths courtesy of Mom and a wardrobe even J.Lo would envy. However, there is a sad story under all that awesomeness: The tiny pup suffers from alopecia, causing him to lose his hair.

Still, dad Ken calls him "the prettiest dog I've ever seen in my life," and we kind of have to agree. As Lisa says in the clip above, in our next lives, we're coming back as Giggy.
