Toronto-based photographer Pete Thorne has a touching series of elderly dogs entitled Old FaithfulFor those of us who own dogs, the thought of our best friends growing old and dying in just a handful of years is tough, and a very sad fact of life. Sigh. Via Laughing Squid:

The Old Faithful project did its first house call yesterday to meet and photograph Mance here. Mance is a 13yr Old English Bulldog, a breed close to my heart. He has bone cancer that adds a lot of character to his face. He’s in a pretty fragile state so I made my first trip out of the home studio to photograph him, in all his asymmetrical charm.
