BAYFIELD, Wis. - A dog that captured the hearts of millions has passed away.

Schoep, the Bayfield, Wis. dog and his owner John Unger became internet celebrities last year because of a photograph of the two in the waters of Lake Superior.

Schoep was 20-years-old. Arthritis and hip dysplasia had settled into his joints. Unger often took Schoep into the lake as a way to provide comfort.
