Paris Hilton’s Dog Dead: Long Live Tinkerbell
Tinkerbell lived a long and fulfilled life for a pooch! She was spoiled by Paris’ tender affections, and rarely left her side. That’s surely a bond Paris will never forget.
The fashion icon announced the sad news of Tink passing away from old age over Instagram, adding how her “heart is broken”. Excuse us while we grab another tissue!
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 🙏

Our hearts are breaking! Additionally, she’s looking back at the “exciting” and “luxurious” life Tinkerbell had. We have to say, Tinkerbell sure lived the high life with Paris, traveling all around the world with her!
Paris has had one heck of a journey with Tink ever since ordering her from an online breeding company in 2002. Paris is now the proud owner of nearly 2 dozen other dogs, according to TMZ, but Tink was her first ever dog.
In 2004, Tinkerbell was robbed from Paris’ home after a series of burglaries, but 6 days later she was returned after Paris offered a $5,000 reward.
Clearly, Tink was very special to Paris and her fans! May she rest easy in dog heaven — she will be missed by many!
