R.I.P. Schoep

You remember Schoep, the dog whose photograph touched the world last year. After the image of John Unger and his dog swimming in Lake Superior went viral, people all over began following them on Facebook, and many contributed money for Schoep's medical care. Schoep died Wednesday at the age of twenty.

After Stonehouse Hudson's photo went viral, Unger's Facebook page was a way for animal lovers to keep up on the John & Schoep story. Unger frequently posted photos and greetings. The last update -- before the announcement of Schoep's death -- was on Monday. It featured a photograph of Schoep falling asleep in a sunny field of wildflowers. The status update was a happy one:

A fantastic day we had. Up early to walk and go to the beach, eat, nap, go shopping, eat, laundry, go to the beach, eat, nap and one more walk. All without the humidity, that's what made it fantastic -- especially for Schoep!
