Here's hoping Muttley can join Miley onstage

RECOMMENDED READING


Now that we know Miley Cyrus looooooves her Tampa Bay fans so much she scheduled ANOTHER concert here in March (just three months after her 93.3-FLZ Jingle Ball appearance Dec. 18), we know you'll love looking at this photo of an adorable fan.

In case you missed the miniature dachshund dressed up like Miley Cyrus going all viral last week, here she is again, and guess what, she's a FLORIDA DOG. She's from Tallahassee, where her owner, Heather Signs, a veterinary technician, is the one to blame when her dog, whose name is Groupie, needs therapy years from now. No, really, we think the photo of Muttley Cyrus is darling. Signs put Groupie into the wrecking ball getup to enter her in a PetSmart costume contest, hoping to win the $10,000 prize, which she said she would donate to animal rescue organizations.

Groupie as Muttley didn't win the dough, but according to her Facebook page, here's what Muttley Cyrus did win: the honor of making the Top 10 new stories on CNN; recognition from as far away as Brazil, India, Japan, Europe, Thailand, Australia, South America and Singapore; coast-to-coast news coverage including People magazine; and of course, her own Facebook page.

Check out this video of Muttley doing a television interview.
