A 20 year old dog whose life is shortening is taken swimming in the lake by his owner until the dog falls asleep in his arms.
He had a good life
John Unger, a resident of Wisconsin, USA, adopted a stray dog, Schoep, when he was only 8 months old. Schoep grew up to the age of 20. He grew older, and his life was not getting any better. His master prepared for the inevitable.
John and Chopp lived together for 19 years. However, Schöpp had long suffered from arthritis and was paralyzed. The veterinarian suggested putting the dog to sleep, but John did not agree.
During the last two years of Schoep’s life, John took care of him as best he could, caring for him, holding him and being reluctant to leave him. John was with him every step of the way.
To relieve Schoep’s joint pain, John would take him to the lake to relieve the pressure on his joints and muscles. Sometimes the current of the water was too comfortable and Schoep would fall asleep in his master’s arms.
This heartwarming photo was taken by John’s friend Hannah, a photographer who posted it on the web, which immediately sparked a lively discussion and touched many people.
But in 2013, Schoep passed away!
At first, John met Schoep at a difficult time in his life. At that time, John promised to treat Xiaope well, and in the end, John kept his promise.
Even when Schoep was on the verge of death, John strove to keep him alive, insisting on accompanying him to the most important happy moments of his life.
In 2015, John finally came out of his grief over losing Schoep and brought in a new family member, Xiong. As soon as the news came out, many netizens cheered!
Many netizens are happy that John has finally gotten his life back on track and is ready to open his heart to a replacement dog.
Share the story of this warm friendship and send your prayers for Schoep, who is sleeping in heaven.
