Never judge an actor by his roles

Mickey Rourke -- you know that sometimes controversial actor/boxer who comes and goes on the radar -- is a great guy who certainly has his priorities straight!

Last night at the Golden Globes, he thanked his dogs in his acceptance speech after winning the Best Actor award for his role in The Wrestler. Mickey's a dedicated dog owner and he's often seen with one of his seven chihuahuas -- including on the red carpet.

In honor of Mickey's win, make sure you take a few minutes today to thank your pooch for all her/his unconditional love and support.


  1. We heard Mickey Rourke thank his dogs and we were so so touched. His stock soared in our house after that! And he did it with heart and sincerity and class.

    Also we love the post about kids and dogs as a natural combo. That's so so true! All this business about little dogs like Shih Tzus not being for kids... not really true. I (Raja) love kids and they have always been nice to me.

  2. Thanks Raja! It's always nice to hear a dog's perspective. Dogs are much more insightful than humans.
