All Dogs Go To Heaven

I saw this today on Made by Girl and I knew immediately that I needed to support this organization by purchasing the book.

I am reposting a portion of her post here...

Audrey & Eldad Hagar never imagined that when they began photographing the hundreds of fostered dogs (and other creatures) who came through their home, that they would actually create a book. They just wanted to remember the animals they had shared great memories with.


Below is their short story about a little dog named Bradley...


"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..." (The end)

Please visit their website and if you can purchase the book for only $9.95.

Good on you for always calling attention to rescue organizations like this. What a precious, sad story.

This reminds me that I need to get back with my local Pug rescue folks. I've been dodging them lately, but time to get back into it.

This made me tear up. So went I and bought a copy of the book. My dog is a rescue, and everytime I see a stray dog on the side of the road, I'm reminded that my baby is one of the lucky ones. Thanks for sharing.
