It's a picture that has changed the lives of a man and his dog.

Many have seen the heartwarming photo showing John Unger and his dog, Schoep, floating in Lake Superior.

In the summer months, the two wade in the water to relieve the dog's arthritic joints.

Now that picture has led to a healing no one expected.
