On his way out of dinner at the Waverly Inn, Mickey explained that his beloved Chihuahua died around 5:00 AM, but the saddened actor said he still didn't have the words quite yet to express how he was feeling.

Loki was 18.

Treasure those memories of your loyal dog. I too lost my 13 year old black lab Spooky two weeks ago. When you lose
your pets, it's like one of your family members.

Mickey I hope you get yourself another dog, I know how difficult that will be, but I did it, his name is Hottie, and he lightens my pain. My hearfelt sympathy to you and your family.

You are right. My first dog taught me a lot, and the only time he ever hurt me, he didn't mean to, for when he left, there was a Scottie shaped hole in my heart. I still remember to use what he taught me every day.

I am sorry for the loss of Mr. Rourke's pet dog. Like most artists & actors, Mr. Rourke is a deeply troubled, foul, abusive, irresponsible, substance abuser with an arrest record who would most likely be eating dog food at the local homeless shelter if not for the fortuitousness of a multiconglomerate's generousity (News Corp. Inc.). Unlike most artists & actor's, Mr. Rourke is not a hypocritical limousine liberal. Mr. Rourke has the integrity to let his actions follow his words.;)) God Bless Mickey Rourke.

Won't work, because your peers don't like you.

I think Rourke is the type of person who relates better with animals then people. He is a odd ball only in the sense he has early on fought against going with the Hollywood machine compare him to what he looked like when he first started he has done almost everything he can do to seperate himself from what hollywood expected him to look like. Poor guy well atleast he gave the dog a good home
