Tuesday proved to be a sad day for Miley Cyrus, who announced on Twitter that her dog Floyd has died.
“I don’t wanna say it because I don’t want it to be real… But my precious baby Floyd has passed away,” she wrote. “I am broken.”
She added: “I know I don’t mean it but I wish he would’ve taken me with him this is unbearable. What am I gonna do without him?”
She first introduced fans to Floyd in July 2011, writing on Twitter, “I’m so in love with him it is ridiculous.”
The avid dog lover – whose canine brood also includes rescues Bean, Mary Jane and Happy – is currently on tour promoting Bangerz.
“I’m sorry in advance if I am not myself tomorrow Boston. I will try my best to be my best,” she later Tweeted. “I am miserable.”
