Kelly Clarkson took to Twitter to share the news about the loss of her dog (and her best friend), Joplin.

In a sad message on her social media account, she wrote the heartbreaking note about her black poodle mix:

Clarkson adopted Joplin two years ago and lost him shortly afterward on New Year's Eve, when he got frightened by some fireworks.

She recalled of the experience, "I lost it (like a little girl) and started bawling ... Seriously, I was so dramatic (hard to believe, I know), but I don't have children and (my dogs) are my babies that I sleep with every night."

"Yes, I might be too attached to my dogs and highly sensitive, but I don't care," she said. "I love them!"

Joplin was found several hours later walking through a pond tangled in vines but otherwise unharmed.

We wish Clarkson all the best during this difficult time.
