Actor Bradley Cooper honors his late dog Samson

Actor Bradley Cooper, well-known for his role in The Hangover, has a big heart when it comes to his dogs, loving them as family members.

Last year Cooper experienced the loss of his 15-year-old German shorthaired pointer, Samson, a dog who was only weeks away from being euthanized when the actor saved him. Cooper decided to honor him by installing a giant photograph (a close up of Samson's eye) in his home.

Recently he was pictured underneath the stunning image (http://www.peoplepets.com/news/celebrities/bradley-cooper-remembers-his-dog-samson-in-a-big-way/1) with Charlotte, his Chow-retriever, lying at his feet.

Losing a pet is heartbreaking, as anyone who has suffered the loss will tell you, but Cooper shows a fine example of celebrating his dog's life.
