Wisconsin photographer's touching photo goes viral

Email

BAYFIELD, Wis. - It's an image that's hard to look at without smiling.

A dog sleeps in blissful repose, head rested against the neck and shoulder of a ponytailed man standing shoulder-deep in water. The man appears in profile, and he wears dark glasses, but his eyes seem to be closed. The smile on his face matches the dog's contentment.

The photo has drawn the attention of thousands of people since being posted on Facebook last week. The story behind the photo is touching.
