    The story behind the photo:

    Bayfield, Wis., photographer's photo goes viral | Duluth News Tribune | Duluth, Minnesota

    Unger and his then-fianceé found the dog 18 years ago at a humane society in Ozaukee County, Wis., when it was an 8-month-old puppy.


    “We knew we wanted to work with an animal who was abused,” Unger said. “I just had a vision of working with an animal to bring out his full potential.”
    Testing suggested that the dog had been beaten by a male, and it took Unger another eight months to fully earn his trust.


    ---


    Unger, who found his way to Bayfield about six years ago, had a photo of himself with his dog in mind for several years. But that mission took on added urgency last week he said. Noticing Schoep limping, Unger took his dog to a veterinarian in Ashland. The vet prescribed pain-relief medication, but Unger doesn’t yet know how effective it will be. If Schoep isn’t able to get up without pain, it will be time to put him down, Unger said.


    Unger stopped the conversation to regain his composure.


    “What was going through my mind when Hannah was taking those pictures was that this may be the last time I’m going to be swimming with him,” Unger said.

    Let me guess. You think your dog is "disabled" because it's a Republican, right?

    Thanks for another great thread BB.

    Ten is considered old for a GSD. Shep is 19 and obviously the love of his owner has helped him achieve that age.

    Super pic and I hope Sheps around for a few more years.

    Schoep died last month, just past his 20th birthday. John is doing as well as can be expected.
