I followed their facebook page for quite a while and John's story and his devotion to his beloved dog was an inspiration. Schoepp was John's lifeline when things were not that great for John.
They lived up in Northern Wisconsin (I'm in Southern Wisconsin) and we all deeply mourned with John when Schoepp went over the Rainbow Bridge. He still has his facebook page, and will update every so often.
They were a remarkable pair, and Schoepp passed peacefully. I will never get tired of seeing this video... Credits: Youtube
If only all animals could have a forever daddy like you John. So much respect for you and what a wonderful life he's had with you :)
