Sad news today from the Cyrus-Hemsworth menagerie: Miley Cyrus‘ wee dog Lila, who passed away last week, was actually killed by a tussle with her bulldog sibling Ziggy.
As Miley has been referencing on Twitter, her dog Lila died recently, leaving a Lila-shaped hole in her heart. Now, her mother Tish Cyrus has revealed in her blog “Off The Record” that Lila was actually murdered by previously lovable Cyrus pet Ziggy.
“The way that Lila was taken from her was beyond terrible,” she writes. She continues:
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. 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…………. 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.
I know I like to make fun of Miley Cyrus for pretty much everything she does, but that is legitimately horrible. If there’s one thing I admire about her, it’s her love for her numerous rescue dogs, even though I am guessing her house smells worse than the Osbournes‘. Could it be that Ziggy was afraid Lila was getting more famous than her and took steps to neutralize the threat? Probably not, as dogs (probably?) have no concept of fame, but just in case, perhaps Miley should refrain from making her dogs into furry celebrities in the future.
I’d also like to take a moment of silence for Ziggy, whose image has been forever darkened by this violent act. May she someday find the inner peace she seeks.
