Loki - R.I.P.

Martin Luther King said, "The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy."

What is the measure of a dog?

Loki, companion to actor Mickey Rourke, remained by Mr. Rourke's side through his highest highs and lowest lows. Ever faithful, ever loyal, Loki gave her 2legged comfort, hope, love, and much joy. She was always there for him and unwavering in her support. Mr. Rourke recognized his 4leggeds in his Golden Globes acceptance speech. In his interview with Barbara Walters, Mr. Rourke credited his 4legged companions with helping him through the darkest of all times, when all else was gone.

Loki, the measure of a dog lies in the amount of love she gives. And you gave so much.

You were there for your 2legged ALWAYS, and Mr. Rourke made sure the world knew that. Your life had meaning and purpose. You are missed and will always be loved.

Mr. Rourke, our condolences. We understand your loss and your pain.

One a personal note, Loki, I will think of you every time I lick up some capuccino foam!

Silvieon4, JD and Wendy

I read about Loki and I heard Mr. Rourke thank his four legged friends in his acceptance speech. More people should think like him. Loki...may he R.I.P.
