The photo and story of Schoep and John touched millions of people around the world, and filled our hearts with love.
Schoep is a 19 year old shepard mix, and suffers from arthritis. His person, John, takes him swimming in the evening when the weather permits, to relieve some of his pain. Schoep usually just falls asleep. This photo was taken by John's friend, and went viral.
Thanks to an outpouring of love, Schoep has received lazer treatments, some supplements, and is doing very well! At 19, he looks pretty good!
This is a nice little video of the two together:
Recently a TV station did an update, and I wanted to share it with you.
Just go here to watch it, it's worth it!
They have a facebook page too!
