If there is a sweeter, more tender image than the one shown here, then it has escaped the attention of this dog lover.

To be able to see the depth of feeling between these two is absolutely amazing. May God bless Schoep and Mr. Unger.

TY Dianne. The picture and article brought tears. I love animals and I have arthritis so I can imagine how much these swims must mean to Schoep both in relief from the boyancy but also knowing that he is so loved. Bless this kind man.

Simply breathtaking in its simplicity. No words needed, the expressions says it all. Unconditional love shared between man and his best friend. Priceless

That is truly lovely and full of such emotion.You can se the comfort in Shoep;s face and the love in John's. Nineteen is quite old for a dog, especially one who is not small. It;s probably the deepest and best relationship he ever had.

I recommend vegan nutrition for an arthritic dog but also for all dogs. Because vegan dogs are healthier and live longer.

Oh, if only, if only, if only.....all people demonstrated this kind of compassion, love, and kindness towards animals. And towards each other.

Precious & Priceless. Love is a gift and a choice. Some how man and dogs have always been met for each other from the Beginning. For God created the land animals and the dog and then the man on day 6. ironically precious.

I cried when I saw the picture. The love and trust between these two are priceless. The look on the dogs face tells so much. This is how God intended humans to treat animals.
