    Awww RIP Old Boy

    I posted the story of what this owner did daily to ease the arthritic pain of his dog Schoep. Their daily swims comforted him.
    He was 20 yrs old.

    I remember reading the original story last year. That old boy sure did hang on an incredible additional amount of time. Love truly does work miracles, doesn't it?

    RIP old timer. A dog was never more loved than you were.

    The clock of life is wound but once and no man has the power
    To know just when the hands will stop - on what day, or what hour.
    Now is the only time you have, so live it with a will -
    Don't wait until tomorrow - the hands may then be still.

    "That's the power of kittens (and puppies too, of course): They can reduce us to quivering masses of Jell-O in about two seconds flat and make us like it. Good thing they don't have opposable thumbs or they'd surely have taken over the world by now." -- Paul Lukas

    Swim free from pain in the waters up at the Rainbow Bridge, boy. All pain is over, and your love will be with us all forever.
