The Tinkerbell Death

Back in 2004, Hilton had a scare when Tinkerbell went missing. The hotel heiress offered a $5,000 reward for her pet’s safe return.

The dog was eventually retrieved without explanation. That same year, they released the satirical book Tinkerbell Hilton Diaries: My Life Tailing Paris Hilton. Hilton and Tinkerbell are also credited with the trend referred to as “handbag dogs.”
