    John Unger with Schoep in Lake Superior (Hannah Stonehouse Hudson/StonehousePhoto.com/Facebook) This man is rocking his arthritic 19 year old dog to sleep in the lake. The water takes the pressure of of the dog's joints. This is so sweet.

    The image was posted to Facebook by photographer Hannah Stonehouse Hudson, who wrote: "This 19-year-old [Schoep is] being cradled in his father's arms last night 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 temperature of the water is perfect. I was so happy I got to capture this moment for John [Unger]... great photo and article. AMAZING. AMAZING!

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." Animals are my weakness.

    "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." Love is love. Truly touching, I wish every dog could have an owner as caring as this man.

No kind action ever stops with itself. One kind action leads to another. Good example is followed. A single act of kindness throws out roots in all directions, and the roots spring up and make new trees. The greatest work that kindness does to others is that it makes them kind themselves. ~ Amelia Earhart
