Rest In Peace, Bradley
While looking through a pit bull community that I post to on Flickr, I found this picture posted by Eldad Hagar and was introduced to little Bradley. Bradley's story really touched me. I advise you get out a tissue and hug your dogs close before reading on...
Bradley is a pup who was dumped a shelter, and was mercifully rescued by the lovely couple behind Hope for Paws animal rescue. Bradley immediately saw a neurologist and was diagnosed with severe hydrocephalus. It was agreed that he should not continue to suffer from this condition and Brady was taken out for a great "last day" at the beach where he enjoyed fried chicken, hamburgers, and lots of love, before returning to the vet where he went to sleep forever.
Hope for Paws is selling a book that will raise money to continue their rescue work. You can buy it or make a donation at their site.
