A 20-year-old dog from Bayfield made famous across the globe thanks to a touching picture with its owner, has passed away.
A Facebook post Thursday afternoon by John Unger, the owner of Schoep, states the dog passed away on Wednesday.
"I Breathe But I Can’t Catch My Breath. Schoep passed yesterday. More information in the days ahead," Unger’s post said.
The dog suffered from arthritis and had trouble sleeping, so to ease his pain, Unger would take him swimming.
