Paris Hilton has taken quite a tragic loss this week, as her famous dog Tinkerbell has passed away.

She wrote of the news on her Instagram, “My heart is broken. I am so sad & devastated. I feel like I’ve lost a member of my family. I love you Tinky, you are a Legend & will never be forgotten.” [TMZ]
