Dogs are always there for you, no matter what. Sure, sometimes they bark really loud, pee on your carpet or get into heated scuffles at the local dog park, but you forgive these things because they’re friends, not mere pets. As humans, when things get old (whether they’re material goods, people or man’s best friend), neglect can set in. People call less, sweaters don’t get worn as often (or at all) and people can sometimes ignore their furry buddies because they’re not cute for Instagram anymore. That’s not a happy reminder of life, but it’s not not true.

That’s why the “Old Faithful” project from Toronto’s Pete Thorne is so magnificent. He photographs older dogs who aren’t show-ready or going to be in the next Purina commercial, and features them in all of their aged glory. He even writes up a back story for each featured dog on his community Facebook page so you can learn more about each furball. And now, he’s got a book coming out!

To mark the occasion, Thorne is holding a competition to see which precious doggy should be featured on the interior cover. The four finalists have been revealed, and one canine has a commanding lead.

We love Stanley, but show some love for Beulah, Colonel and Isis over on Old Faithful’s Facebook page.

As for the other doggies shot by Thorne? Well, we’re literally crying (tears of joy) looking at these majestic four-pawed friends, and we think you will, too:
