Photo of Owner and His 19-year-old rescue dog, Schoep, Goes Viral!
I have not seen a more sweet, loving and nurturing image between man and animal like this one before! It is heartwarming and touching.
This photo is of Wisconsin resident John Unger and his 19-year-old rescue dog, Schoep. Unger is holding the dog that has severe arthritis in the water. Unger came aware of the fact that this was the only really relieve that Schoep could get from the pain, and that could help him to fall asleep. It also eased the aching muscles and this has now become a nightly ritual for the two!
Schoep rescued Unger when he was only eight weeks old and says the nightly routine is the least he can do to pay the dog back for “saving his life” one night many years ago.
Of that night, Unger said, “To be honest with you, I don’t think I’d be here if I didn’t have Schoep with me that night. He just snapped me out of it [...] I just want to do whatever I can for this dog…”
This makes me feel like crying…
