Getting to know you ... getting to know all about you!
Just a few days after Selena Gomez adopted a 10-week-old puppy
from a Winnipeg, Canada, animal shelter with beau Justin Bieber
, the singer and her new furry friend were spotted dilly-dallying on a sidewalk in Toronto, the latest stop on her tour. Baylor, a husky mix, led the way and attempted to walk Mom at least once by tugging at the leash with his mouth.
Her little buddy may exude independence, but it seems Gomez has already become quite dependent upon him. On Tuesday, the star was ill and spent some time resting up in bed with Baylor, watching Friends
"After 12 hours of medicine, tea, 1374 cans of soup and throwing up right when I get off stage ending my night with Baylor watching friends is perfect," she wrote on Twitter, sharing a photo
of the pair snuggling in front of a laptop. "I can't thank you enough London for tonight I'm so sorry I was sick. I love you guys so much."
A cuddle with your favorite mutt is always the best medicine!
