Paris Hilton's Dog Tinkerbell Dies At 14 & The Reality Star Honors Her Pup With An Instagram Tribute — PHOTOS
If you were a fan of The Simple Life, then there's no doubt you remember Paris Hilton's dog Tinkerbell. Well, sadly, on Tuesday, Hilton announced via social media that Tinkerbell died at the age of 14 due to "old age." It seems that after seeing Legally Blonde, which featured Reese Witherspoon toting around a Chihuahua named Bruiser, Hilton was inspired to get her very own Bruiser. According to IMDb, Hilton adopted Tinkerbell and the two became inseparable.
Actually, Tinkerbell became a huge part of Hilton's image and one of the most famous reality show dogs. She was even spotted on Paris Hilton's My New BFF, where she helped investigate those who were on the show for true friendship and not just to become famous. Just seven months ago, Hilton shared a video of Tinkerbell after many fans wondered if the pup was still alive. Hilton accompanied the video with the following caption: “To everyone who keeps asking if Tinkerbell is alive. Here she is, the original queen herself!”
To say Hilton is upset over Tinkerbell's death is an understatement. She wrote on Facebook and Instagram:
My heart is broken I am so sad & devastated. After 14 amazing years together my baby Tinkerbell has passed away of old age. I feel like I've lost a member of my family. She was such a special & incredible soul. We went through so much together. I can't believe she's gone. I will miss her & think about her for the rest of my life. I love you Tinky, you are a Legend & will never be forgotten. #RIPTinkerbell
Ever since Hilton shared the sad news, she's turned her Instagram page into a tribute for Tinkerbell. Here are some photos and videos to remember Tinkerbell by.
