    I read about this in the morning, and now it's already got 300,000 likes, 180,000 shares, and millions of views on facebook, and is the number 1 story on HuffPo.

    The dog is 19 years old, and he rocks it back and forth in Lake Superior to ease the dogs arthritis and help get him to sleep. He said the dog saved him from committing suicide years ago.

    Here's the news article on it. A nice story and a good example of the power of viral traffic from something so simple. The wedding photographer who took it has got it made for a while.

    Anyone have a nice sharp pair of scissors? I feel for the pet but that hair has got to go. Holy shit! Can we say 1970?

    Simply beautiful. Dogs are wonderful creatures and I love mine to bits. Words don't do it justice. Who cares about the hair, it has absolutely nothing wrong with it. I don't have long hair at all, nor do I particularly like it, but we should be looking at the beauty of reality. It's just magnificent!

    They must have a special bond. I just put mine down when they can't walk on their own anymore.
