Miley Cyrus has lost another furry friend.

The “Midnight Sky” singer shared a mournful tribute to her beloved Mary Jane, a pitbull mix who recently passed away after being under the 29-year-old’s care for almost a decade. Taking to Instagram Thursday (January 7), Cyrus paired her emotional tribute to her “best friend” with photos and videos as well as a special song dedicated to her pet dog.

“I wrote this song in Malibu years ago on a piano in a house that no longer exists. About my dog Mary Jane who is also gone now,” Cyrus started her message. “A lot has changed over time. Mostly me. Music is my medicine. This song revolves around loss & heartache. Which I am currently experiencing after Mary Jane’s passing.”

“MJ was a true queen,” she continued. “She wore her grace, dignity & kindness like a crown. She will never be forgotten and will forever be missed. To know her is to love her. It has been my honor being her mom and best friend.”

In an Instagram Story, Cyrus explained that Mary Jane had passed away after a year-long battle with cancer, noting that she was “advised to spend every second savoring her special spirit, something she refused to take for granted.”

“When it came to my ANGEL Mary Jane… never once did I forget the gift I had been given,” the “Wrecking Ball” songbird shared. "I thanked her repeatedly as she took her last breath for who and what she has been to me. It was something more than a friend or family member. Something so different. You can't define it. Our connection was purely DIVINE. An incomparable love."

This isn’t the first pet the "Malibu" star has lost, as fans will recall Cyrus mourning the passing of her dog Floyd in 2014.
