Mickey Rourke's Chihuahua Passes On
Academy Award nominee Mickey Rourke's constant companion, a plump little chihuahua named Loki, passed on just a day before the award ballots were due. Rourke gave a memorable heart felt thank you to his dogs during his Golden Globe acceptance speech, and became a PETA advocate on their behalf.
Loki became something of a fixture around town in recent years. Rourke hosted "Loki Karaoke" at Rokbar, and frequently brought Loki along during his protest adventures against a local pet store.
Loki was 18 in human years.. He'll be survived by his canine brother from another mother Jaws, Rourke, and hopefully a small golden man.
