She was only spotted with her new pet pooch yesterday for the first time.

And while you would think that Suri Cruise would be inseparable from her curly haired companion, the youngster stepped out without the canine today.

The six-year-old and her mother Katie Holmes went out for a snack in the Big Apple, leaving the dog at home.

Suri was bright and colourful for the outing, wearing a floral pink dress teamed with matching flip-flops.

She also sported a patterned plaster on her right arm, where it appears that she has suffered from some kind of tiny abrasion.

Meanwhile, her mother Katie was dressed for the summery conditions in a billowing short dress paired with her favourite Isabel Marant boots.

The actress has worn the tan ankle boots dozens of times, and they are starting to get some major wear and tear.

Both mother and daughter wore their identically-styled hair in a low ponytail.

Besides obviously her father Tom Cruise, who is currently holidaying in Croatia, Suri was missing one family member during her outing – her new doggie.

The pair were seen for the first time with the curly ball of canine fur yesterday, during one of their regular outings at the Chelsea Piers.

The sighting came just weeks after Katie was seen telling Suri she couldn't have a puppy, resulting in the obligatory tears.

At the time, Katie was urged by animal groups to think about getting a rescue dog… and it seems that she may have heeded this as their new pup looks older.

Suri burst into floods of tears after her actress mother refused to buy her the adorable pet puppy she wanted.

The mother-daughter duo were seen looking at different pet pooches in Citipup pet store in New York.

Suri appeared to fall in love with a little white and black Yorkshire Terrier and Maltese mix pup but was left inconsolable when Katie put her foot down.

The little girl was seen performing all the classic children's tactics to try and get her own way.

First she stuck out her bottom lip, pulled her face into a frown, while gazing up at the dog in question.

Next she tried to ignore her mother who held out her hand keeping her eyes firmly fixed on the floor.

When this didn't work she stormed out of the shop before bursting into tears in the car on the way home.

Animal rights campaigners urged Katie to adopt a dog instead of buying one from a pet store – should she want to get a dog for Suri.

Devera Lynn of North Shore Animal League America told Radaronline: 'Unfortunately most pet stores are provided their dogs from commercial breeding organizations otherwise known as puppy mills.'

Adding: 'We would love to show Katie the animals we have if she is ready to adopt.'
