Andy Cohen told his fans back at the end of May, that he rehomed his rescue dog, Wacha. He and Wacha spent seven years of their lives together, so he found it very hard. But, now he updated about Wacha and said that he visits the doggie. Apparently, Wacha settled in and seems very happy in his new home.
Andy Cohen disabled comments on his first post about Wacha’s new home
When Andy shared the news about Wacha being sent away, he closed off the comments in his Instagram account. We noted that’s rather unusual for the Bravo host. But, perhaps he expected a lot of heat from people. After all, rescue pets are hot topics. Recall the huge drama during Season 9 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. It covered a long drama after Dorit Kemsley gave away her rescue dog. Maybe, Andy recalled all of that.
Andy felt very sad about sending Wacha way. But People noted that he still visits his old doggie companion. The outlet reported that he spoke about it on SiriusXM’s Radio Andy. In the article, People reminded fans that Andy Cohen took some professional advice about Wacha. It came after some “random aggression.'” So, Andy worried about his son Benjamin. Trainers told him that if Benjamin got hurt then he might end up needing to “destroy” Wacha. Andy couldn’t bear the thought of that.
Wacha and Andy still see each other
Andy said that he wanted his fans to know that Wacha’s not unhappy. “He is happy,”‘ Andy stated. Plus, he mentioned that he took Wacha out for “an hour walk.” No plans emerge to show a total severing of his relationship with his pup. Andy’s determined he’ll plan on seeing Wacha going forward. He noted that the pooch seems totally fine and exhibited no depression when he saw him. Once again, he revisited the “heartbreak” of rehoming his dog.
He assured fans that Wacha remains a part of his life. In fact, he stated that “this dog [stays in his life].” The Bravo host added, “It’s just not anything I could have imagined would happen, but it did.” The depth of his feelings for Wacha seems very real. His original post that Andy shared noted, “My dog changed me. He opened me up to love…to caring.” Andy believes that helped him accept the fact that he could love and care for a child of his very own.

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.
Avoiding the worst outcome
Somehow, it seems a bit tragic that Andy Cohen now parents Benjamin, but the doggie that taught him about love got sent away. However, most people fully understand that Andy felt conflicted about endangering both of them. He noted that if Wacha ended up destroyed, it would be the worst possible outcome. Do you agree?
