"We rescued Bradley from the shelter last night, and today I took him to a neurologist.
The doctor had only sad news for Bradley...
We agreed he should go to sleep and not suffer this severe hydrocephalus. (as you can see, his head is weirdly shaped due to a lot of fluids in his head / brain).
I didn't want to let him go yet, so from the vet I took Bradley to the beach, I sat with him, played with him, and I fed him many cheeseburgers and fried chicken.
We sat there for two hours, and after that I took him to the vet's office right on the beach, and he went to sleep forever :-(
It was such a sad day... I cried like a baby for this little guy. Even now when I am typing these words, tears are coming to my eyes..."
Thanks Jen for sharing this story. This comes from an except from a wonderful book written by Audrey and Eldad Hagar who have fostered hundreds of dogs over the years and now run Hope for Paws, an animal rescue organization in Los Angeles. They have written this book 'to remember all the animals they had shared great memories with.' All proceeds from the sale of this book go directly toward helping animals. Please click here to learn more about their organization and buy a book! - it's the least we can do for our lovely little companions who give us so much and want so little in return...
