May make you cry!
But how touching! The water in Lake Superior HAS to be so cold!

Nothing makes a man a hero in our sight quicker than his kindness to a child or an animal.

Thank you for sharing this post.

A friend of mine sent that to me and I forwarded to several friends who in turn forwarded it to their friends. It's touched a lot of us; it's just beautiful!

Apparently, the water is warm at this time of year and he carries the dog in to relieve his arthritis. How sweet is that?

He's had that lovely dog for 19 years, he is so going to miss him when he's gone. I can almost feel his heartbreak already. That man really really loves that dog, what a wonderful relaionship.

This is a very touching photo but, the water in Lake Superior never gets very warm. I took a class on a research vessel out on Lake Superior out of Superior, Wisc. & they said the water is never any warmer then 40 degrees F. Maybe, because of our warm weather this summer & because he's in a shallow area, it's warmer where he is. It must be or he surely wouldn't take him in there for his arthritis.

That's dedication. Wish my Shiloh would calm down that easily! God bless him and Shep.

So touching :) what a story! I too can feel his pain when his beloved dog has to cross over to the other side. :(
