Add one more to Mickey Rourke's pack of heavenly canine companions.
The Oscar nominee's Chihauhau Loki, one of the dogs memorably thanked by Rourke in his Golden Globe acceptance speech, has died, Rourke's rep confirmed Tuesday to E! News.
Loki passed away Monday night at the ripe old age of 18. The pup was prominently photographed walking the red carpet with his master, who called Loki the "love of [his] life," at the Venice Film Festival in September.
"I'd like to thank all my dogs, the ones who are here and the ones who aren't here anymore," The Wrestler star said when accepting his Globe for Best Actor last month.
"Sometimes, when a man is alone, that's all you got is your dog. And they've meant the world to me."
Rourke expanded on this sentiment in a recent sit-down with Barbara Walters for her annual post-Oscars interview special.
