    In loving arms: Man floats his sick dog to sleep. This story is beautiful and inspiring. He brings his 19 year old dog "Schoep" to Lake Superior and floats him in the water to alleviate his pain from arthritis and hip dysplasia so that he can sleep in comfort.

    Inspiring story of a man named John Unger who turned into an internet sensation because of this photo of him and his dog, Schoep floating in Lake Superior. Schoep is 19 years old and has severe arthritis--Unger floats with him in the lake to relieve him. Thousands of people world wide saw this picture and started sending donations and gifts, and thanks to the kindness of complete strangers, Schoep's health has made a remarkable turn around. Dogs really are a man's best friend :)

My girl reaches for my hand when I wake up, when I get home from work, and whenever she wants loving. I love it so much! #puppy

Golden Retriever - Awww. I want to throw my arms around his neck and hug him!

I dont know whether this particular story is true - but it is a great story to reflect upon if youve taken a rescued dog (or cat) into your home. I gave Storm a long head scratch after this.

I will wait for Christmas here!

"Sorry, I haven't seen your ball." this makes me think of Buddy and his never-ending hunt for the fish lol

Dog says to the child: "Please could you scratch my neck just a little lower down? Thank you kindly..."

Big Puppy - Either: "I don't feel good... Please HOLD me" OR: But, but, but I don't NEED any shots!!!!!!!!!!!

That's a face of a truly satisfied pooch. My dog Clinton had done this. He filled my den with tennis balls from a friends bag. So thanks for this photo says it all.

Too sad this is only the expectation of sleeping with a dog, they are actually big bed hogs!

This is an absolutely amazing story. ♥ I want this kind of love with any dog I'll ever own..wow.
