That is what I call a real man. Some one who shows his love and genuinely cares. Actions speak louder than words. He is the most deserving person to go on the cover of Time magazine.
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.
Very well said.
No one deserves it more!!!
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.
He is someone to be honored. The bond between them is so moving.
What a GREAT idea !! I couldn't see ANYONE more deserving if this recognition than John Unger !!Let's make it happen people !!! Do it for Schoep , do it for John , do it for your pet(s) !! What a loving tribute it would make !!
He is certainly much more qualified for the honor of "Person of the Year" than any of the other "celebrity" types or whomever else they could bestow the title. He is merely a representative for those of us who also loved and lost a dear, dear friend.
This story is so profound in its meaning.It makes me feel, that mankind still has a chance at getting it right.
There is life outside partisan politics. I would love to see a cover that didn't involve politicians, movie stars, or big business.
John is the very definition of compassion, what a beautiful heart he has. RIP Schoep, we love you.
