The Real Housewives of New York star Sonja Morgan likes to joke around about lots of things, from pirate sex to urinal face baths. But when it comes to her pets, you don’t want to mess with her.

Fans will recall what happened when Aviva Drescher did exactly that in Season 5, Episode 12: "All How You Spin It". After Aviva called Sonja out for missing her charity event, Sonja burst into indignant tears, insisting that her pup Millou’s health was failing, and she had to take him to the vet. Millou has since passed away.

Is it time for Sonja to get another dog?

On November 2, Sonja tweeted, “Considering another dog, I’m nuts.” A hushed gasp certainly went out among her followers, but we actually think a new puppy might be a great thing for Sonja. Without her pet sleeping in bed with her every night, she might go looking for the wrong kind of replacement, like a plumber, or a pirate.

Do you think it’s too soon for Sonja to think about getting a new dog, or is it a great idea? Tell us in the reaction buttons below!
