Any dog owner will tell you that when you lose your beloved pooch, getting a new one right away isn't always the best solution. Miley Cyrus knows that now, too.
Miley's dog Floyd, whom she referred to as her favorite of all her dogs, recently passed away, and Miley's mom tried to make her feel better by giving her an adorable puppy named Moonie . But Miley has decided not to keep the little furball, because she's not ready emotionally. She tweeted a picture of herself holding Moonie, and wrote, "Moonie, thank you for giving me so much love, comfort, & peace. It's just too soon for me right now." She added the hastag " #missingmoonie ."
But it isn't just an emotional problem for Miley: it's the fact that Moonie was so small. She hasn't publicly addressed what happened to Floyd, but there have been rumors that he was taken by a coyote. Miley alluded to this in her response to a fan who asked where Moonie will end up. She replied , "my friends mom who has a tiny pup 4 him 2 play with: Molly After what happened Im scared 2 have a tiny dog."
When another fan wrote, "Oh, I'm a bit sad but I know that Moonie will be happy," Miley replied , "& SAFE! That's the most important part of loving a puppy. They depend on you."
