In view of the current global condition, it's time for time to recognize the strength of the human spirit by choosing John for the cover. If we can treat animals with such respect and compassion imagine how we are capable of treating our fellow man!

They once graced the cover of TIME with Hitler. John Unger is the antithesis of evil. He's perfect for the cover of TIME'S person of the year! Love, trust, humility, care, companionship , and a friend til the end, to our dear 20 year old Schoep. He's brought people together from all around the globe, with his touching story of a "man and his beloved dog". We need to read about this!

John's love for Schoep is a shining example of Dogs' Best Friend. Our pets are our family. Just because it becomes difficult for them to see, walk, play, etc. is not a reason to say "good bye." Lots of love and lots of patience goes such a long way! Thank you, John, for showing the WORLD this wonderful example of compassion and love! THANK YOU!

The petition is still gathering signs and will not be submitted for a few months yet.

PLEASE help make this a reality.

WHY - well the picture and story of John and his amazing relationship with his beautiful late dog called Schoep says it all - doesn't it?
