What We're Loving: Bradley Cooper's Homage to His Beloved Dog Samson
Hunky actor Bradley Cooper may play suavely piggish characters in box office hits such as "The Hangover" and "Wedding Crashers," but based upon a recent story in the New York Times, it's evident that in real life, he's truly a very warm, likable down to earth guy.
Brad's For Dogs
Clearly a huge animal lover, Cooper adopted his beloved dog Samson, a German shorthaired pointer, from a kill shelter's Web site just three weeks before he was going to be euthanized. His other dog Charlotte, a chow-retriever mix, was adopted when Cooper spotted her during an adoption drive in Santa Monica, Calif.
Sadly, Samson passed away last year and Cooper had a beautifully enormous portrait honoring Samson hung in his Pacific Palisades home (Charlotte is resting under the table). How fantastic is this portrait?! LOVE IT!
We're def fans now!
