Socialite and celebrity “It Girl”, Paris Hilton’s little dog Tinkerbell that accompanied her everywhere died in its 14th year.
It was quite some time (in dog years) before Paris Hilton’s mutt gave up the ghost. Tinkerbell was the cute teensy weensy chihuahua that was by Paris Hilton’s side in a Mary-had-a-little-Lamb fashion.

Why, the small world was even in a Guess ad flanking Hilton’s goddess frame as she wore a golden bikini. Paris bought Tinkerbell in 2002 after she saw Legally Blonde in which Reese Witherspoon carried a similar mini toy dog.
The female chihuahua had a luxurious life being a celeb’s dog but also had to be in the spotlight all the time which might have been stressful even for a canine. Paris Hilton often posed with the dog and mostly kept her smothered in her large purse.
Tinkerbell went missing in action when thieves entered Paris Hilton’s apartment in 2004. While Paris said she would give $6000 to anybody who handed her back her dog, the chihuahua reappeared in a few days much to the relief of the celeb.
Tinkerbell must have got a case of sibling rivalry since there were over 24 other dogs that Paris managed to adopt after taking in Tinkerbell from a company. Upon her death, Paris was heartbroken and very sad.
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
She spoke of how it felt like she had lost a member of her extended family.
Many Instagram pics were posted by Paris showing Tinkerbell.
One of these depicts four poses of Tinkerbell in cartoon form. She is seen trotting, sitting and in angry mode.
