BAYFIELD, WI -- It's a story that's taken Facebook by storm -- an image of John Unger and his dog, Schoep, has been viewed by millions online, touching the hearts of people around the world.
Almost 20 years ago, John rescued Schoep as a puppy and they have been inseparable ever since.
But it has not been an easy journey; Schoep suffers from arthritis and has trouble sleeping.
To ease his pain, John takes him swimming every day and Schoep falls asleep in John's arms.
