Well-known animal lover Miley Cyrus lost a piece of her heart this week when her dog Lila passed away.
Announcing the sad news via her Twitter account on Tuesday (December 11), the "Hannah Montana" star said, "for everyone asking... I have never been so hurt in my life. My heart has never been so broken..... Lila my sweet baby girl has passed away" after a cryptic message earlier saying, "can't think of one good reason to get out of bed today...."
Her Yorkie mix, who turned 2 in early November, was hospitalized two months ago. However, Miley has a pack of pooches ready to console her, including Ziggy, Floyd, Happy, Mary Jane and newly adopted, Penny Lane.
Needing time to mourn, she later posted, "Broken. Gonna go MIA for a bit. Need some healing time. Thank you to everyone who has sent love my way. I need it."
