Paris Hilton is heartbroken after dog's death

PARIS Hilton is grieving the loss of her dog Tinkerbell.
The 34-year-old star is "so sad and devastated" that her beloved 14-year-old teacup Chihuahua - which she reportedly purchased in 2002 after seeing a similar dog in 'Legally Blonde' - has passed away.

The blonde beauty revealed the sad news by posting a photograph and tribute to the late pooch on Instagram on Tuesday (21.04.15), writing: "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 and 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 (sic)."

The former reality TV star also shared another image of herself clutching Tinkerbell, with the caption: "In honor & memory of Tinkerbell I'm dedicating my Instagram page to her today. I hope you enjoy the memories of my sweet angel We've been through so much together. She lived a long, beautiful, luxurious and exciting life. #RIPTinkerbell (sic)"

The DJ was devastated when Tinkerbell was stolen by burglars in 2004, but the dog mysteriously reappeared shortly after she offered a $5,000 reward.

Paris previously revealed she owns a total of 35 animals, including six other dogs.
