A man and his aging dog are getting worldwide attention after a picture of them floating in Lake Superior went viral on the Internet.

John Unger and his adopted dog Schoep have been pals for 18 years, but time is catching up. The shepherd mix has lost his sight and suffers from arthritis, so man and best friend make regular trips into the shallows of Lake Superior, where the water offers some temporary relief.

Since the image of Unger and Schoep hit the Internet, people from around the world have offered to pay for the dog's medication and treatment.
