Eric Roberts’ Beloved Pooch Soon to Pass Away Too: ‘This Will Probably Be Muddy’s Last Week’

Anyone cheering Mickey Rourke’s big comeback (as we did) could not help but have been touched by the February 16 passing of his pet Chihuahua Loki.

“I said to myself that I’d rather have Loki for two more years than an Oscar,” Mickey – who was nominated for his role in The Wrestler – told reporters six days later while making his way up the red carpet at the Academy Awards.

Now, sadly, we learn that Mickey’s pal Eric Roberts will soon be griev- ing the passing of a beloved pet as well.

Interviewed on BlogTalkRadio’s Spiritual Warriors, Eric says Muddy, his 14-year-old half-pit bull, half- German shorthair, is in the final stages of cancer.

“We have his lungs drained about twice a week. And we’re keeping him alive because he still wags his tail,” Eric tells host Jsu Garcia.

“But I believe this will probably be [Muddy’s] last week here, because he’s starting now to get unhappy. So when he gets uncomfortable, I’m gonna put him to sleep,” adds the actor, who co-starred with Mickey in The Pope of Greenwich Village, and will be reunited with him in next year’s The Expendables, along with Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Dolf Lundgren and Jet Li.

But we’re trying to keep him happy. And I’ll keep him with me all day long, up until that happens.”

Eric also talks about Mickey’s recent public grieving of Loki, telling Jsu:

“He meant it from the bottom of his heart. Don’t think he didn’t.”

Mickey told Enter- tainment Tonight last month that Bruce Springsteen, Al Pacino and Anthony Hopkins were among the stars who expressed their sympathy following Loki’s death.
