R.I.P., Humping Dog from Sex and the City

R.I.P., Humping Dog from Sex and the City

Let's take a moment to reflect upon the passing of Gidget Gormley, the adorable, irrepressible Yorkie who starred in the movie that came after the highly successful HBO series about four gal pals living and loving in the Big Apple. Gidget, who passed at the relatively elderly doggy age of 16, will have the peace of mind of not being included in the possibly upcoming Sex and the City 3 movie, unless she's replaced by another humping dog/Gidget lookalike, which has been known to happen in the movie business.

While the plot device of a humping dog was in keeping with the overall decline of the SOTC franchise (becoming cheesy, cringe-worthy, and just not that cute anymore), we're still sad for Gidget's owner, who wrote on Gidget's blog this week, "Last night she really fell apart. At the ripe old age of 16 her Vet and I have decided its time to help her make her way to the Rainbow Bridge... as they say." She continues,

Her little canine celebrity status help raise money for a number of charities. As a Melanoma survivor she was the dog of hope for "Tails of Hope" and was the canine host of a number of pet charities including Friends of Snuffy. What this really means is... this little creature inspired me to do good things. She helped me become a better person. I've had her since she was 9 weeks old and she's been my mute little sounding board for 16 years. We've been though great family joy and tragedy, a number of boyfriends , one husband, apartments on both coasts, 2 houses and 3 cars. We cuddled in my NYC apartment on 9/11, and had wonderful holidays. She has been by my side for the ups and downs of my career. Her presence gave me emotional support during a couple tours of unemployment and paid some of the bills with her acting gigs. There are so many other big events and silly things that will always remind me of her. She's a brat but she will always be my brat. I love her and will miss her.

Aw. R.I.P., Gidget. Watch her reel from "the early days." Yep, that's Chloe Sevigny.
