Unhappy RIP Schoep

Remember the pic of a man standing in a lake holding his elderly dog to relieve the dog's pain from arthritis?

19 years old. He had a good run.

Yep, you know how it is. They aren't with us very long at all... Hard to fight back a few tears reading this one.

That's sad, but at least he had a great buddy to take care of him.

RIP Schoep.

I posted this original story last year because it touched my heart.

Rest in peace!

And I wish healing for that wonderful human, John.

I hope John has a strong circle of family and friends who understand the grief he will be feeling and don't say to him he was just a dog.
