Ever since this beautiful picture of John and his sweet dog Schoep became an internet sensation about a year ago, I've been following Schoep's journey to his 20th birthday. He celebrated it in June with thousands of good wishes and cards. John posted that Schoep had passed on July 17, 2013, and it has touched thousands of people. I just had to include it in our family scrapbook because I have loved Schoep and his wonderfully kind owner.
