A cancer-stricken dog’s last day captured in blissful — and heartbreaking — photos
HOUSTON — The family of a Labrador retriever wanted to provide as many joyful last moments with Dukey before having to put down the cancer-stricken dog.
Robyn Arouty documented the farewell with photos that included a hamburger party, tearful goodbyes and a trip to the park in a blog post that was recaptured on Buzzfeed. Arouty wrote on Facebook that her site was experiencing technical difficulties.
A photo of when Dukey fell asleep is added, and the photos include captions written in the dog’s voice. A family friend took the photos and the blog post was titled “I died today.”
Dukey was adopted three years ago by the family and was captured in a video.
