Pop babe Britney Spears left her mother LYNNE to potty-train her new puppy LACY LOO while she holidayed in Hawaii this month (JUL04).

The TOXIC singer purchased the white dog only weeks before she flew to the island to relax with new fiance Kevin Federline, leaving her mum to deal with the messy pooch.

On the star's official website, Lynne complains, "They had a fun, lazy and wonderful time in the sun. And yes, I was left holding the new, not-potty-trained puppy.

"We have two new pups. JAMIE LYNN (Britney's sister) has a yorkie named ALLIE BOO and Brit's pup is Lacy Loo. They are so smart and cute."

While Britney was holidaying, Lynne flew to Boston to open the singer's namesake hotel room at the city's new ONYX HOTEL.
