Paris Hilton’s Beloved Dog Tinkerbell Dies
Today, I feel for Paris Hilton. Not the over-photographed and under-talented ditzy blonde heiress to the luxury hotel chain, but the grieving pet parent.
This week she learned that all the money in the world (or at least all the money the Hilton chain rakes in each year) doesn’t soothe the ache of losing your best buddy after 14 years of hanging together – Paris in nightclubs, Tinkerbell in her handbag. Yes, the famed Chihuahua that single-handedly (paw-edly?) put designer totes on every diva’s must-have list has passed from old age.
First introduced in 2002, Tinkerbell authored (methinks there is a ghost writer lurking in the background) the tell-all book on Paris entitled “The Tinkerbell Hilton Diaries: My Life Tailing Paris Hilton” and was revealed by the heiress to have veto power when it came to potential suitors. “Tink has a big say. If she likes a guy, I know they’re good. I’d go out with a guy who was really funny and honest – or someone Tinkerbell really liked.” I hear you, girl!
Just last Fall, Hilton introduced new Pomeranian pup, Prince, to her menagerie of mini-dogs including Tinkerbell, to see if he made the grade. Apparently he did, and will provide some much needed comfort in the days to come.
The wannabe actress confirms her heart is broken and that she feels like she has lost a member of her family on her Instagram account: “She was such a special & incredible soul. We went through so much together. I can’t believe she’s gone. I will miss her and think about her for the rest of my life. I love you Tinky, you are a legend & will never be forgotten.
This week, we can all relate to Paris Hilton (never thought I would say those words!) as she works through one of life’s toughest experiences.
