Oscar nominee Mickey Rourke's beloved Chihuahua has died just days before the actor hopes to crown his own professional resurrection at Sunday's Academy Awards ceremony.
Loki, 18, who accompanied "The Wrestler" star to the Venice Film Festival in September, died on Monday night, Rourke's representative confirmed to E! news.
Rourke, 56, famously thanked his dogs - past and present - in an emotional speech at the Golden Globes in January when he won the best actor award for his comeback role in "The Wrestler" after years in the acting wilderness.
