Tender Moment Between Man And His Sick Dog
Easing the pain of his dying arthritic dog 19-years after saving him as a puppy. Schoep is a 19-year-old shepherd mix with painful arthritis. He was 8 months old when Unger rescued him and named him after a popular ice cream brand in southern Wisconsin, The dog has trouble sleeping at night, because of the arthritic pain, so Unger, who lives outside of Bayfield, Wis., started bringing Schoep into the water in Lake Superior to soothe his bones ..
Every night Schoep falls asleep in Unger's arms.
"I just want to do whatever I can for this dog because he basically saved me after a break up with a girlfriend, I owe him that.."
