Paris Hilton’s 23-Year-Old Chihuahua Harajuku Bitch Passed Away
Paris Hilton has the ultimate accessory of a new baby friend she can tote around now, so I’d imagine her menagerie of pets just hasn’t been getting out of
the closet their dog mansion as much as they once had. But, her long-haired chihuahua, Harajuku Bitch, escaped this mortal plane to join Paris’ most famous pup, Tinkerbell, in the big purse in the sky. Harajuku was 23.
People says Paris posted a tribute to Harajuku, who was with her starting way back in her early 2000s “vapid, baby-voiced awful person” phase all the way up to her current “vapid, normal-voiced awful person cosplaying as someone who isn’t” phase.
Paris Hilton is saying goodbye to her beloved chihuahua, her companion for more than half of the star’s life.
On Monday, the reality star, 42, shared the news on Instagram with a carousel of photos that included Harajuku and her other dogs.
In one photo, the businesswoman holds the pup in one hand while holding an umbrella in the other. In another picture, the chihuahua is surrounded by dog toys, including a Jimmy Chew shoe and a Pawda dog purse. Another photo shows Harajuku, with his tongue out, looking out from the window of a pink vehicle.
“Today, my heart breaks as I say goodbye to my precious chihuahua,” the caption began. “For an incredible 23 years, she filled my life with so much love, loyalty, and unforgettable moments.”
The entrepreneur continued her tribute to her dog, writing how she “lived a long, beautiful and iconic life, surrounded by love until her final peaceful slumber. Words cannot express the immense pain I’m feeling right now. 🥺”
Here’s the whole tribute:
And later, she posted an in memoriam Reel of pretty much the same photos, but with music:
Harajuku must’ve been a very hearty, determined pup to successfully evade Paris’ many documented instances of animal messiness. Back in 2004, Tinkerbell went missing only to be returned under shady circumstances; and at the end of 2022, another of her chihuahuas, Diamond Baby, was lost, never to be found. And at one time, the Los Angeles Dept. of Animal Services was on her ass because she admitted to owning 17 dogs, and there was a rumor she’d lock dogs in closets and her housekeeper would later find them dead. But at least her former pet kinkajou, Baby Luv, got some vengeance by biting her that one time.
So, cheers to you, Harajuku, for being one tough bitch whose very long life was most likely entirely fueled by spite. I can see it in those ornery eyes and that apathetic grin!
