Miley Cyrus may have a new dog in her pack, but that doesn't mean she's over the death of her favorite pup, Floyd, who passed away last week. The 21-year-old singer has been publicly mourning on Twitter for days now, since she announced Floyd's death Tuesday. On Friday she tweeted the arrival of Moonie, a gift from her mother. "my mama knew my heart was broken & this morning I woke up to Moonie kisses," Cyrus wrote, including a picture of Moonie. The picture was retweeted more than 20,000 times and marked a favorite by about 46,000 fans. But while the new pup has offered comfort, she hasn't replaced Floyd in the singer's heart.

Miley Cyrus' dog Floyd has died, and the singer mourned her loss publicly Tuesday night on Twitter. Her plaintive tweets were peppered with broken-heart and sad-kitty emojis, and by Wednesday the hashtag #RIPFloyd was trending on the site in the U.S. "Today is the 2nd worst day of my life," she posted Tuesday afternoon, offering no explanation until she returned to Twitter seven hours later.

"Your husband doesn't seem to be cheating on you," Nassrouie reassures his client, an Iranian woman, over the phone.
