If this doesn't get Mickey Rourke an Oscar, nothing will

Mickey Rourke's chihuahua Loki has died

Mickey Rourke’s chihuahua Loki has died at the old (in dog years) age of 18. Rourke has said repeatedly that his dogs got him through his career crisis before “The Wrestler” made him a star again, even dedicating his Golden Globe acceptance speech to all the dogs he’s owned: “Sometimes, when a man is alone, that’s all you got is your dog.” If he wins the Oscar for best actor next week, his speech may set a record for the greatest number of dog references in under a minute.
