Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- Over 8,000 people have already signed an online petition to get John Unger and the late Schoep from Bayfield on the cover of TIME Magazine.

A group started the petition on Causes.com asking TIME Magazine to name Unger as Person of the Year and showcase a picture of him and his dog on the cover of the national magazine.

The group already exceeded their goal of 7,500 signatures.

John and Schoep rose to international fame last year after a picture of the two floating in Lake Superior went viral. Schoep recently passed away at the age of 20.

If you would like to sign the petition, you can head to the group's Causes page.
