Mickey Rourke loses a loved one

The Superficial / February 18, 2009

Mickey Rourke’s beloved Chihuahua Loki went off to the great fire hydrant in the sky, E! News reports:

Loki passed away Monday night at the ripe old age of 18. The pup was prominently photographed walking the red carpet with his master, who called Loki the “love of [his] life,” at the Venice Film Festival in September.
“I’d like to thank all my dogs, the ones who are here and the ones who aren’t here anymore,” The Wrestler star said when accepting his Globe for Best Actor last month.
“Sometimes, when a man is alone, that’s all you got is your dog. And they’ve meant the world to me.”

That’s probably the most depressing thing I’ve ever read. And just an aside to Mickey Rourke’s parents, don’t try and buy him another Chihuahua and pretend it’s Loki. Something like that could mess a kid up.
