Miley Cyrus gets a Mate. Yes, she has boyfriend Liam, but she decided to go for two! One male, one canine. Miley’s new mate is a puppy she named Mate. How clever. Miley got Mate for her birthday and this is his debut.

More pictures of Miley and Mate after the treat…

He is an adorable puppy. From Celebuzz:

How do you reverse the damage done to your once-squeaky-clean image in a hurry? If you’re Miley Cyrus, you parade through the streets of West Hollywood with a fluffy white puppy whose cuteness is capable of making everyone forget whatever unseemly events that might have transpired in your past.

Witness the “Party in the USA” songbird clutching her pooch Mate—how did she not name it Snowball?—during a shopping excursion yesterday.

 Do you really think Miley played this up for an image clean up? I don’t think so either. I mean, how could you say no to a face like that?
