JUSTIN BIEBER NEEDS HIS DOG ON TOUR

Justin Bieber is so lonely on tour, he's arranging for his pet dog to join him on the road.

The 16-year-old singer is currently midway through a long North America tour, and he admits he's finding it tough spending so much time away from his family and friends.

The Baby hitmaker, who has an adopted papillon puppy called Sam, says, "There are ups and downs, my mom is very proud. My dad, he misses me. I don’t see him a lot.

"I’m lonely, yeah. I’m going to get my dog to come on the road in a couple of weeks."
