Love begins at home. And it is not how much we do, but how much love we put in that action! John Unger put all his love in giving himself to Schoep, his faithful and loving best friend. Something for all of us to learn.

Not rich, not a celebrity, but a real person who is truly inspiring. This to me is what a role model, hero, and person of the year should possess and John is all of that. God bless you sir and Schoep will always be remembered.

John Unger is a saint. So many people need to take some lessons from him. No one on the planet deserves man of the year more than him. He was and still is so devoted to his dog Schoep. The world loves him. Check out Facebook and see for yourself. There is not a more caring man in the world. He lost his dear friend and understands how people feel.

John may not realize it but he has changed life. He has introduced a broad awareness of loving & dedicating oneslef to our pets, especially senior pets. He has created a greater need for fighting animal cruelty and cherishing God's creatures. He is THE MAN!
