Old is inspiring. Old is beautiful. Old is character. Old isn’t dead.

Notice how distinct older dog’s faces are compared to more youthful ones. All the telltale signs: lumps and bumps, gray hair, chipped and missing teeth. Some had loss their eyesight, some were missing their eyes altogether – evidence of both a struggle with old age and of a life well lived.

In the pictures in Old Faithful, their lives are written all over their faces. Lifetimes of digging, barking, licking and loving. They’re the kinds of dogs who have comforted you, frustrated you, peed on you, and been your friend through it all.

This is a project of Pete Thorne photographing old dogs. The older the better.
