Poor Paris! Her 14-year-old pooch, Tinkerbell, passed away. The Chihuahua has been with Hilton since 2002.
“My heart is broken,” Hilton shared on Instagram. “I am so sad and 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 … I love you Tinky, you are a Legend & will never be forgotten.”
Tinky was famous in her own right. The doggie starred in The Simple Life
and was often seen on the red carpet. MTV called her “the first true canine companion of reality television.” Tikerbell even shot a Guess commercial!
Tinky was an original, but there are other famous pets in Hollywood.
Taylor Swift’s cats are famous on their own. Meredith and Olivia often appear in her Instagram photos.
Miley Cyrus and her pets are inseparable. She has many, including a pig, but her lovable pooch Floyd passed away last year. She commemorated him with a tattoo on her side.
Another famous canine who has gone to doggy heaven is Mickey Rourke’s Chihuahua Jaws. Rourke was always seen with his best friend at his side, and like Cyrus he commemorated the dog with ink. “Guapo Siempre,” translated to “handsome fovever,” is for Jaws.
