Emily Maynard may be the best mom ever to daughter Ricki, but that doesn’t mean she can protect all of her children from any harm. The Charlotte-based Bachelorette tweeted on October 8 that her other daughter was in danger after having a seizure.

“My sweet maltese puppy, Pixie, had a seizure yesterday. Praying she’s ok and gets to come home from the vet today,” Ems tweeted on Tuesday. Oh no! We’re so worried for Emily and Ricki, especially since Pixie was Ricki’s present for her 8th birthday!

“Rickis Birthday Surprise! The newest addition to our zoo,” Emily posted back on June 23 when the two adopted the darling white fluff ball. A couple days later, Emily Instagrammed a pic of Pixie all dressed up in a pink gingham dress and star-bedazzled marabou hat, captioning the shot “This poor dog doesn’t know who adopted her.”

In addition to the little Maltese, Emily and Ricki also have another dog, a couple cats, and who knows what else in their North Carolina “zoo.” And it seems like the Season 8 Bachelorette takes her pals everywhere. Just last week, Emily posted a pic of herself in overalls, white pup in her lap, saying “Just two country girls on the farm ;).”

Considering what a big part of their lives Pixie Cup is, we’re right there with Em and Ricki in their prayers for Pixie. Get well soon, little one!
