Mickey Rourke's Beloved Pet Chihuahua Loki Died
RIP, Loki: Mickey Rourke's Beloved Chihuahua Passes Away

Mickey Rourke touched a lot of hearts when he thanked his dogs – "the ones who are here and the ones who aren't here anymore" – at the Golden Globes, and sadly, Loki now falls into the latter category. I was really hoping he'd bring this 18-year-old pup as his date to the Oscars on Sunday (as he mentioned last month), but his rep confirmed yesterday to E! News that the Chihuahua passed away on Monday night.

Anyone who's lost a pet knows how difficult this is, and even when it's a stranger in the public eye, it's hard not to empathize as well. I'm saddened to share this news with you and gathered the most recent photos of the duo that I could find, leaving lunch with designer Domenico Vacca at NYC's Nello restaurant on Feb. 12 – RIP, little Loki.

I'm the girl that made the Loki necklace for Mickey. He was kind enough to take time out of his busy schedule and personally call me! What an amazing guy! Everyone in NYC is rooting for Mickey tonight! - Betina Wassermann, Queens, NY. wickedworld.etsy.com

I found the website for the artist who created the Loki necklace that Mickey is wearing. Her name is Betina Wassermann, and she is from Queens, NY. www.etsy dot com/shop.php?user_id=5073675

After guiding Mickey thru his hard times and back to a better life I hope Loki gets his rewards in Doggy heaven!

It's so hard when a pet passes. 18 years is really good for a dog. Rest in peace, dear Loki.

After 18 years, that dog must've been like a child to him. I feel terrible for him. I gained so much respect for him after his Golden Globe speech; it's important to me that the people I'm closest to have a deep love for animals, and dogs are my favorite. I hope he has a strong support system to help him get through this.

It is so difficult to lose a beloved pet. They do live in our hearts forever.

That's really sad. Barely saw him alone over the past few months.

Awww, I loved that dog. He always looked so disdainful of everything going on around him. I hope Ladybird lives to be 18!!!

Thats really sad. I lost my second pup to cancer in Dec (even though I was told she would be around until at least May). I know its hard when you lose a pet. I hope he knows how much he doggie must have loved him.
