A wonderful scene: in this beautiful scene, a kind and caring man is rocking a sick dog to sleep
This dog’s stage of the disease has made it difficult for him to get relaxation.
A photograph of a Wisconsin man lulling his sick dogs to sleep in Lake Superior can be kept for a long time, in case you need another example of the amazing bond between man and dog.
Hannah Stonehouse Hudson captures her boyfriend John Unger in this picture on the Great Lakes holding his 19-year-old dog Schoep.
Schoep has joint pain and the severity of his illness makes it difficult for him to rest.
Unger began taking his best friend into warm water to help him relax and ease his agony. Schoep can get some much-needed relaxation with gentle rocking that acts as a form of therapy.
“People claim to see everything in this frame, from pure love to faith in the future. They perceive calmness, kindness and human-dog interaction,” he said.
“I want everyone to recognize themselves in this photo and remember a time when they felt safe, loved and cared for,” Hudson continued.
Schoep was rescued by Unger and his fiancee when he was an eight month old puppy.
It took about a year for the dog to start trusting Unger, according to the Duluth News Tribune.
