Entering Lake Superior cold water at anytime in the year is a feat of bravery in itself, to do so for such a beautiful reason is more than brave it is selfless love for another life. John and Schoep deserve to be on the cover of Time because this man and his dog show the world what life and love is about. No politics, no anger, no bias just love and compassion, this is what is missing in far to many people.

The world should know how wonderful dogs are and dogs should all be treated how John treated Schoep. John truly cared about Schoep and in the picture of them in the water Schoep completely trusted and loved John.
