Wisconsin man John Unger loves his pup Schoep a lot. He’s had the 19-year-old Husky since the dog was a puppy. So when vets told him that Schoep was suffering from painful arthritis that made it impossible for him to sleep, Unger decided to help him in the only way he could — he took Schoep swimming in nearby Lake Superior. The calming water lulls Schoep to sleep. Unger does this every night. Explains photographer Hannah Stonehouse Hudson:

“Shep falls asleep every night when he is carried into the lake. The buoyancy of the water soothes his arthritic bones. Lake Superior is very warm right now, so the temp of the water is perfect.
