Miley Cyrus is so distraught over the loss of her beloved dog, Floyd, that she brought a 60-foot replica of the dead pet onto the stage at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn on Saturday and sang to it.

Visibly shaken, she reached up and touched the dog’s leg while singing “Can’t Be Tamed,” and fell to her knees as she sang.

“That was the hardest song of the night to do. As y’all know, because I lost my Floydie this week ... Sometimes I just can't stop from breaking down crying," she told the audience. “But it's so healing for me to be here with you."

She also dedicated a cover of Coldplay’s “The Scientist” to Floyd. “These have been the hardest days I have ever been through,” she told the crowd.

According to reports, her beloved rescue dog, one of several she owns, was killed by a coyote on April 1.

He mother tried to help by giving her a new puppy, Moonie, over the weekend. But Miley struggled to take in another pet so soon.

“I wanna sleep but all I can do is cry. I never wanna go home to a house where Floyd isnt running playing. how do I get thru this,” she tweeted.

“I feel physically sick I am so emotionally and physically exhausted I feel like I have nothing else to give sweet baby Moonie.”

We refuse to mock for we, too, have been inconsolable after losing a dog. We’d just like to know where she got that big ol’ dog.
