Movie star Mickey Rourke was so distraught when his pet chihuahua BEAU JACK died three years ago (02) he couldn't return to his home for weeks.

The BARFLY star, who now dotes on his late pooch's daughter LOKI, admits he still finds it hard to talk about Beau Jack's death.

He recalls, "I gave him mouth-to-mouth for 45 minutes before they peeled me off. Depressed? He died at my home, and I didn't go back for two weeks."

Rourke now owns seven chihuahuas.
