Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kyle Richards and her family had to deal with a tough setback this holiday season as their beloved dog Roxy passed away. 

Lisa Vanderpump's dog Giggy might be the most famous of the Real Canines of Beverly Hills, but we've loved getting to see Roxy play with Kyle and her family on the show. Sadly, Roxy died on December 23, 2013.

"Today, our beautiful sweet dog Roxy passed away," Kyle captions a pic of Roxy. "She's been with us for 12 years. Heartbroken but grateful for the time we had with her. We ❤️ U Roxy."

Kyle also posted a sweet photo (at left) of her youngest daughter Portia cuddling up on the couch with Roxy. "Roxy & Portia," Kyle captions that one.

And while this is very sad, we appreciate the way that Kyle is honoring their pet. She posted a photo (at right) of a rock with Roxy's name on it.

"My friend had this rock engraved in memory of our dog Roxy that recently passed away," Kyle writes. "Such a sweet & thoughtful gift. Thank you @mcraigla I ❤️ It XO"

We wish Kyle and her family all the best during this tough time.
