Half a head, infinite inspiration

When I first saw this photo some time ago on the web I thought it was a photoshop project that seemed odd at best, and cruel.

If only Adobe had been the culprit; the truth is so much worse.  I found out today that this dog is real, and half his head really is missing.  His past is unspeakable; the love and courage he and his rescuers possess, redefine redemption and hope. http://www.mlar.org/advocacy/dog-fighting

Oogy is a Beautiful Pit Bull.  His whole story comes out October 12. http://www.amazon.com/Oogy-Only-Family-Could-Love/dp/0446546313 (I hope his people have learned through Oogy that Dogos, pit bulls and other bully breeds are all ultimately victims of human cruelty.)
