Pop star Miley Cyrus has posted a picture of bathing with her new dog on Instagram.
The 21-year-old singer took to the photo-sharing site to introduce the new addition, Emu, to her fans, reported Daily Mirror.
"Time to start making Emu accounts smilers. He's here and here to stay I welcomed Emu Coyne Cyrus into the family a couple days ago. Been keeping him a secret cause sometimes I'm weird like that."
Cyrus said no pet can replace her last dog Floyd, who died three months ago. "It's taken some time to be ready for this next step and loving again. There will never be anyone like Floyd. There was a bond that was so deep it's irreplaceable but that's not what I am trying to do.
"Never will I replace Floyd and that's something I had to take time to understand. we had a very special memorial service for Floyd and I felt my angel Floydy give Emu his blessing. I prayed to Floyd to just give him a touch of his awesomeness and he has," she added.
