Here’s a really sad story. Last week Miley Cyrus announced that her beloved little dog Lila had passed away.
We didn’t know what the cause of death was, but Miley has been pretty torn up about it, writing on her Twitter page, “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.”
Miley’s mom Trish just revealed that Lila didn’t pass away from natural causes, she was attacked by Miley’s other dog Ziggy.
“As you all know, [Miley’s] beloved baby girl Lila passed away. Everyone has been so precious and so supportive of her and I love you all so much for that. Miley loved Lila more than anyone can imagine. I know some people were saying it's JUST a dog, but to Miley she was so much more,” Trish wrote on her blog.
“The way that Lila was taken from her was beyond terrible. Sometimes things happen that we just can't understand. Miley still isn't ready to talk about it, but I thought you guys should know what happened. 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."
Lila’s sad ending forced Miley to make the decision to give up Ziggy, fearful that he might lash out at one of Miley’s 4 remaining dogs.
Miley ended up taking Ziggy to SPOT dog rescue and he was placed in a home with no other pets or children.
“Not only did Miley lose Lila, she feels she lost Ziggy as well," adds Trish.
