He sets the example of how animals should be treated.

The photo is so simple and true that it does need to be on time magazine. We are in serious need of something like this to show the compassion which is out there. Instead of glorifying bombers and sadistic killers. We need a picture like this to soothe our hearts and give us hope.

Better still let's each try to be our own positive story. Not just see isolated acts of kindness in others disproportionately whilst for many ppl little actually changes in their own lives. How many ppl will cry over John's sad loss but then tuck into their steak and chips without a care in the world. Perspective, perspective, perspective. ......

I think John and Schoep should be on the cover - so what if he helped "just one dog" ? If everyone helped just one dog, or cat or person think how much better this world would be! I would love to see them on the cover

Yes I agree Shirley that every opportunity to inspire kindness in others should be made as public as possible. My only question is. . which story out of all the untold ones that takes place all over the world is the most inspiring?

The more good that will result from being inspired to emulate a given individual's behaviour, the more we should all (hopefully) want that behaviour to be publicised. So try to pick the behaviour that has made the most positive difference to the most individuals and let that inspire people to match it. Helping one dog is a good thing to do and should be applauded. In an ideal world of course it would be nice if more animal advocates generally could be better represented in the media. ...

Sadly 'one dog at a time' will do nothing for the factory farms, the fur farms, the bar bile farms or any of those other things.The a difference bergen,'heart rending' and 'deserving' that is easy to miss sadly.

Neal I completely agree with you about the factory and fur farms - unfortunately, I doubt very much that any mainstream magazine would have the guts to put either of those things on the cover Also, so many people refuse to take an honest look at those things

Amidst all the inhumanity that has become routine fodder in the media, this offers a breath and light of hope. The love, devotion and dedication portrayed in this photo and the events that surround speaks to our higher sense of being.
