For Lea Michele, moving on from the loss of her co-star and real-life beau Cory Monteith has understandably been difficult.

To help her cope, the singer-actress got herself a new canine companion, a cute little dog named Pearl.

“Everyone meet my new little love Pearl,” she captioned the photo of her new pooch, which “Us Weekly” reports is likely a Pomeranian or a Pomeranian mix.

In another photo titled “My girls,” her dog is laying comfortably near the actress’s pet cat.

Michele is hard at work on FOX’s “Glee,” which is taking several weeks off after airing “The Quarterback,” the show’s homage to Monteith and his character, Finn Hudson.

The star is also busy putting the finishing touches on her debut solo LP, for which she finished recording earlier this year and recently posed for the album artwork.

“Glee” returns to FOX on Thursday, November 7 at 9pm. What do you think of Lea’s new pet? Have you stopped crying from watching the show’s emotional tribute to Cory yet? Let us know in the comments!
