I have seen this picture on Pinterest and do not understand exactly what the comments below are about except that someone said she would not "put her dogs down unless they were openly wounded"! I just put my dear Ladybug to sleep because her back legs gave out and she could no longer go to the bathroom. For me to do anything else would have been extremely cruel and selfish. It was very hard, heartbreaking and it will take a long time to get over it. I did it because I love her and she...

It was very hard, heartbreaking and it will take a long time to get over it. I did it because I love her and she depends on me to keep her safe, happy, and able to have a reasonable quality to her life. I say to Janet that she may find her position to be very unfair to her little dogs. Beyond that, I 100% support getting John Unger on the cover of Time magazine! Ginger Wirt

I am so sorry you had to say good bye to your sweet Ladybug! It is so hard to say goodbye and I have gone through it a few times. It takes time and a lot of crying but you will pull through. Just like humans they are always with us. And, we can feel them all around us :)

I followed "Schoep and John" on FB from beginning to the end and looked forward to John's posts every morning. You see, I rescued and then adopted a16 yr. old blind and deaf Rat Terrier with a heart murmur two yrs. ago; she died just this past May. Her story amazed everyone that heard it. Even though I have a beloved little Min Pin, my little Rosie left a huge emptiness; we came to respect and love her so much. When humans have the bittersweet opportunity to watch animals overcome hardships...

When humans have the bittersweet opportunity to watch animals overcome hardships in their lives, it is a humbling experience. Schoep had excellent care by the funds raised through Facebook and he did NOT suffer. He knew the greatest love to his last breath.
