Watch: One Man’s Compassion For His Dying Dog Created A Miracle That He Didn’t Anticipate
2012, John Unger pulled the heartstrings of people worldwide, with a photo of himself and his dying, arthritic dog Schoep in Lake Superior. Unger would take 19-year-old Schoep out into the lake in order to console Schoep through his suffering. In addition, Unger would hold Schoep out in the lake until he fell asleep – even if it took several hours.
