Can you ever go wrong with a puppy? Miranda Lambert doesn't think so. She made one of her furry friends a stand-in for a post showing appreciation for her two 2017 Grammy nominations, which she received on Tuesday morning (Dec. 6).

The "Vice" singer is nominated in the Best Country Solo Performance and Best Country Song categories. These are the only country categories she was eligible for, as The Weight of These Wings was released after the Grammy's deadline.

"What an amazing Tuesday," Lambert writes on Instagram next to a photo of a puppy-sized Bellamy. "To have such a personal song as #vice be nominated means the world."

Shane McAnally and Josh Osborne helped Lambert write "Vice." Osborne told Taste of Country that nothing was off limits when she wrote the song, but stopped short of revealing directly what or who it's about.

“It’s written so much on the line of, it could be real, or it could be a character. And we purposely — and will continue to — leave that open to interpretation,” Osborne says. “It really is written from a point of view that I think is a relatable point of view. A lot of people struggle with things that are their weaknesses.”

Lambert has previous Grammy wins for her Platinum album and the song "The House That Built Me." Her two nominations for the 2017 Grammys trail Maren Morris (four) and Keith Urban (three).

The 2017 Grammys air on CBS at 8PM ET on Feb. 12.
