Schoep And John have been best friends since David adopted Shep from a shelter 19 years ago. But in dog years, 19 is a long time, and so Shoep is feeling the aches and pain of age. When David realized how much pain his best friend was in, he decided to try something: He would take Shoep in his arms and walk into the water by his house, letting his dog feel weightless, and therefore pain free.
Shoep would fall instantly asleep once the two were in the water, so David started to do it everyday, sometimes for hours. If that’s not dedication, I don’t know what is! This man is an example to us all on how to love our animals!
