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.
If this doesn't make you smile I'm not sure you are capable :) when my twin siblings were babies our boxer Ginny would play with them like this. Don't be scared of the noises, boxers are just very grungy dogs because of their squishy faces aww!
