Mickey Grieves Dead Dogs, Tans His Hide

2/20/2009 10:43 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Loki wasn't the only pooch Mickey Rourke sent to pet cemetery this month -- because last night, the guy told us his 18-year-old Chihuahua was the second of his six dogs who passed.

We got him going into a tanning salon -- gotta darken that leather for Oscar Sunday -- where the fans outside were totally loving him.

I hope Mickey wins the Oscar. He deserves it. Plus the more money, success, and exposure he gets, the more animals are helped. He has already educated a large segement of the population who had never thought about the evils of puppy mills and breeders before. The rewards of pet rescue are evident every time he talks about his dogs and the mutual love between them.

Did you know the big scar on his lip is from a chihuahua bite? At a rescue center, he was shown a formerly abused dog who had been deemed unadoptable. Mickey picked him up and the chihuahua bit the hell out of him. Mickey immediately said that he would adopt this dog, because it deserved to know that not all people are a--holes.

You go, Mickey!
