This Amazing Story About A Dog's Last Day Will Have You All Choked Up.

I Died Today, by Duke Roberts
 

This beautiful but heartbreaking set of images was taken by Robyn Arouty, a Texas photographer, who decided to chronicle a dog named Duke’s last day here on Earth. Robyn is an animal rescue advocate in the Houston, Texas area, and was given the chance to join Jordon Roberts as she said goodbye to her first “baby,” Duke. Diagnosed with a type of bone tumor called osteosarcoma one year after Jordon and her husband adopted him, Duke was given the best care possible to ensure his comfort and survival. However, even after amputating Duke’s leg, the cancer continued to spread. Jordon and her husband soon came the realization that he would need to be humanely put to sleep.

The whole family spent one last day with Duke, and on July 7th, sent him to a place where there would be no more pain. Look at these beautifully captured moments, and enjoy Duke’s last day from his point of view.
