The result: improved quality of life for Schoep during his last year. Sadly, Schoep died recently. My condolences go out to John Unger who was a wonderful caretaker and friend to his canine companion. Schoep was lucky to have John in his life.
Are there life lessons to be learned from this? Most definitely there are.
- We should go to any lengths to help a friend, human or otherwise.
- The human animal bond can be strong and beautiful.
- Retelling Schoep's story is a wonderful way to teach children compassion and how to treat others.
- Pet parents should never be afraid to explore alternative therapies for their furry family members.
- All life is precious.
