Meet the Man and Dog Behind the Photo of the Week – John Unger and Shoep [Video]

Hannah Stonehouse Hudson captured the beautiful relationship between John Unger and his ailing dog Schoep (copyright2012@stonehousephoto)

The picture of John Unger cradling his dog Schoep as he falls asleep in the warm water of Lake Superior has captured the hearts of millions of people across the world.  Now, John is telling his story to the world.

The beautiful story of this wonderful man and his dog has touched millions, and a benefit fund is being set up in Schoep’s honor.  John knows he doesn’t have much time left with Schoep, that’s why the photos Hannah Stonehouse Hudson took that day are priceless.

A benefit fund will be set up in Schoep’s name in the next week or so. For now, the message on Schoep’s veterinarian’s facebook wall says it all:

As soon as the benefit fund is established I will publish it here.
