"person of the year" for letting his dog suffer so much for so long? that's not "selflessness", that's the definition of "selfishness" - not doing what was right for his dog's wellbeing and being too concerned with avoiding his own pain and loss.

This story exemplifies the love between person and dog. This great dog was given the respect and comfort he/she deserved in the winter of her life. Bravo!

It would be great to recognize a GOOD person like John Unger for being so kind and caring for his dog while we are bombarded with horrible news and photos about MEAN people who torture innocent loving needing animals. Animals have feelings too and John Unger is the PERFECT EXAMPLE to everyone on how an animal should be treated. Please make John Unger Person of the Year and feature him on the cover of Time Magazine.
