"Schoep, a 19-year-old arthritic dog is being cradled in his father's arms in Lake Superior. Schoep falls asleep every night when he is carried into the lake. The buoyancy of the water soothes his arthritic bones. Lake Superior is very warm right now, so the temp of the water is perfect. John rescued Schoep as an 8 month old puppy, and he's been by his side through many adventures." Awwww!

John Unger cradling his dog Schoep, in Lake Superior. Schoep is 19 and has arthritis that prevents him from sleeping. John carries Schoep to Lake Superior and cradles him in his arms until Schoep falls asleep. John credits Schoep for saving his life and now John does all he can for Schoep.
Well...hello! I can't believe I found this online. I have this same picture cut out from our newspaper - dated June 1, 2001. "Unusual Friendship" "Three years of daily meetings have fanned an apparent friendship between Chino, a 9-year-old golden retriever, and his favorite fish, Falstaff. The pair live at the Medford, Oregon, home of Dan and Mary Health."
