Losing a pet is heartbreaking, regardless of if they’ve been in your life for a few weeks or several years.
Even celebrities aren’t immune to the heartbreak that comes with grieving a pet, including Paris Hilton.
After 23 long years, Paris Hilton’s chihuahua has passed away.
The celebrity took to Instagram to share a tribute to her late dog, Harajuku
In the post, she said: “Saying farewell to my beloved chihuahua, Harajuku Bitch, today. In 23 amazing years, she brought endless love, loyalty, and unforgettable moments to my life. Her journey was long, beautiful, and iconic, surrounded by love until her peaceful slumber.”
She went on to say that she feels “indescribable” pain over her dog’s passing. She said, “She wasn’t just a pet; she was family and a loyal companion through every twist and turn.”
In the tribute, she thanked the dog for “gracing my life with unconditional love.”
She ended the post saying, “Rest gently, sweet friend, knowing you’ll always be cherished and missed. Love and miss you eternally.”
I am broadly interested in how human activities influence the ability of wildlife to persist in the modified environments that we create.
Specifically, my research investigates how the configuration and composition of landscapes influence the movement and population dynamics of forest birds. Both natural and human-derived fragmenting of habitat can influence where birds settle, how they access the resources they need to survive and reproduce, and these factors in turn affect population demographics. Most recently, I have been studying the ability of individuals to move through and utilize forested areas which have been modified through timber harvest as they seek out resources for the breeding and postfledging phases. As well I am working in collaboration with Parks Canada scientists to examine in the influence of high density moose populations on forest bird communities in Gros Morne National Park. Many of my projects are conducted in collaboration or consultation with representatives of industry and government agencies, seeking to improve the management and sustainability of natural resource extraction.
