This is just so touching ❤️
You may remember seeing the picture a long time ago. A man with long, grey hair is flying with his Shepherd mix, sleeping in his arms and his head on the man’s chest.
Here’s the story behind that photo.
Schoep was a baby when John Unger got him. After 19 years, the dog was old and had arthritis and hip dysplasia. Unger learned that the best way to help his beloved pet Schoep feel better was to float with him and take the weight off his joints.
A friend of Unger’s took a picture of the two of them, and it quickly went around the world.
When that picture went popular, their story became news. Donations started coming in from all over the world, which gave Unger a chance to try other ways to deal with his pain and gave him an extra year with his beloved Schoep.
Even though Schoep has died, people worldwide can still feel the love in that picture.
