Ariana Grande paid tribute to her late ex-boyfriend Mac Miller Monday by honoring the anniversary of their duet, "The Way."

On her Instagram stories, Grande shared an image with a heart and the words "six years." On the next slide, she posted an image of herself posing with Miller's dog, Myron, writing "Real protective with my soullll where YOUUUUUU been."

It's the second time in just a few weeks that Grande has paid tribute to Miller, who died last year of an accidental drug overdose.

On the opening night of her tour on March 18, Grande kicked the tributes off by playing his music before she took the stage. Fans loved the touching nod to him and Grande's dedication to honoring his memory at any chance she can get.

The two dated for two years before breaking up, partially as a result of his substance abuse issues, although Grande has written many songs about the love she felt for Miller.
