Miley Cyrus has been mourning the loss of her dog, Lila, ever since the pup passed away last week. She took to Twitter to inform her fans of her beloved pet’s death writing, “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.”
Now the singer’s mom Tish is opening up about the painful way Lila died, and it’s understandable why it was an especially traumatic experience for Miley – one of her other dogs was responsible for Lila’s death.
“The way that Lila was taken from her was beyond terrible. Sometimes things happen that we just cant understand. Miley still isn’t ready to talk about it, but I thought you guys should know what happened,” Tish starts off, writing on her blog Off The Record.
“For some unknown reason, Ziggy…grabbed Lila. Not really sure if she was playing or what? She grabbed her in just the wrong spot and Lila didn’t survive,” Tish continued.
“Please understand that Miley isn’t ready to talk about this and we dont think Ziggy is a mean dog…We took Ziggy to SPOT dog rescue and they found her a new home with no other pets or children just in case it wasn’t a fluke. So not only did Miley lose Lila, she feels she lost Ziggy as well.”
Tish goes on to say how thankful she is for the fans’ support of her daughter through the difficult period, and says she is grateful that Miley had her VH1 Divas performance to take her mind off of losing Lila.
