Actress Haylie Duff has a new look: a black eye, courtesy of her dog.
“My black eye from Birdie (my big dog) Owner abuse!!” she shared on Twitter Tuesday, along with a photo of her sporting a bruise under her left eye.
While its unclear exactly what happened, Duff, who adopted a Chihuahua-pug mix named Kennedy last month, doesn’t seem too upset about the doggy dust-up.
“Truthfully, the filter on the pic made it look worse than it really is!!” she wrote later.
