My DEEPEST sympathies to Mickey! I have LOVED him since 9 1/2 weeks. He's had some tough breaks and I truly believe he deserves the recognition he is getting - and hope he is honored with an Oscar on Sunday! His love of his dogs was limitless and this is what made him such a teddybear in my mind.

I wish him all the luck and success in his renewed future!

During the lowest part of his life that dog gave him unconditional love. You can tell he is hurting now but I gurantee you he is a better person from having had that dog in his life. The power of unconditional love is amazing and when he thanked his dogs after winning the Golden Globe it showed how much he cared about them.


Glad to see him back.

I adore Mickey and think he's a class act and my heart goes out to him for the loss of his beloved dog. TMZ on the other hand has no class when they can poke fun at someone elses pain!

Anyone who is cold enough to say "get over it, it was just a dog (or cat)" obviously has never known the unconditional love a pet returns to its owner.
My heart hurts for Mickey Rourke, I know the pain all too well. He needs time to grieve and his loss is as real as anyone's who has lost a human being they happen to love.

It is sad and I hope people do not make fun of it. Many individuals who go through recovery, often find solace in their pets. Average people feel sorrow when they lose a pet and this is no different. He was a gentleman who was once down on his luck and took comfort in his four legged friends.

My cat is named Loki. I love my pets, and I know what Mickey is going through with the loss of a pet. I feel sad for Mickey, losing his beloved pet. TMZ its not funny at all to make fun of a grieving person.

Had to have two family chihuahuas put down after 21 and 18 years, respectively. Those little rats just grow on you. Small pups with big personalities! Sorry for your loss Rourke.

Hey i just think that poor Mickey man he lost his dog. Pets are like another member of the close family. And i have to agree with Harvey that snapped at that blonde guy. He meant that more metephorically and the blonde guy didnt get it. I think in that segment he looked like a douch for it. But yeah I hope Mickey becomes strong and who knows maybie get another companion along down the line.
