Miley Cyrus is honoring her dearly departed pet with new ink. The “We Can’t Stop” singer and some of her friends got matching tattoos of her late dog Floyd during a house party on Saturday, July 5.
“#withalittlehelpfrommyfwends,” the 21-year-old wrote via Instagram. #housepartygreentonguefloydtats.”
Cyrus posted several pictures while getting the tattoo on a couch and when the final product was finished. Her tattoo, placed on the left side of her body, included a design of Floyd with a speech bubble that read: “With a little help from my friends.”
Cyrus was left heartbroken after her adorable Alaskan Klee Kai pooch passed away in April, reportedly from a coyote attack. One month later, she mourned the loss in an emotional note posted to her Twitter account.
“I keep asking why would the world take my sweet boy from me? I’m just a baby myself…I depend on my mother still.
She is the one at the end of the day I want to hold me when I’m sad, scared, lonely,” she wrote in the rambling passage. “I was Floyd’s mommy. I don’t know when the regret and the guilt will fade. I don’t know if it ever will.”
“I feel like I let my boy down. My job was to protect him and I’m not a person that takes failure lightly,” she continued. “Today is one of those days where I can’t open the curtains to see the sun…open the windows to hear the world going on around me because to be honest I hate the fact that the world’s still spinning. I want it to stop…I want everyone’s heart to break the way my heart is breaking.”
Cyrus’ mom Tish tried to fill the void with another dog named Moonie at the time, but the singer eventually decided to give him away. Last week, she adopted a new Collie dog named Emu.
