Oscar nominee Mickey Rourke's beloved dog has reportedly died.

The actor's chihuahua Loki died at the age of 18, his publicist told USA Today. Rourke is an avid dog lover, often carrying Loki to events with him. Loki and Rourke recently posed together in a PSA for PETA.

Rourke thanked his dog's at the Golden Globes when he won for his role in 'The Wrestler.' "I'd like to thank all my dogs, the ones who are here and the ones who aren't here anymore. Sometimes when a man’s alone, that’s all you got is your dog. And they’ve meant the world to me,” he said in his speech.
