Man Floats With 19 Year Old Elderly Dog Every Day To Ease His Pain

You may remember seeing the
photo several years ago. There’s a man with long, graying hair floating with
his Shepherd mix sleeping in his arms and with his head on the man’s chest. Here’s
the story behind that photo.

John Unger adopted Schoep as
a puppy. 19 years later, the elderly dog was suffering from arthritis and hip
dysplasia. Unger realized that taking the pressure off of Schoep’s joints by
floating with him was the best way he knew to provide his  beloved fur child
with pain relief. A friend of Unger’s took a photo of the two of them, and it
quickly made its way around the world.

Once that photo became
viral, their story made the news. Donations started pouring in from around the
world, which allowed Unger to pursue other methods of pain management that gave
him another year with his beloved Schoep. Even though Schoep is gone now, the
love behind that photo can be felt around the world.

Be sure to spread that love
by sharing this video!
