Meet Duke Roberts, a lovely black dog that was given the best day of his life before his final resting day. He was diagnosed with osteosarcoma and had his leg amputated successfully. Soon after his human mom, Jordan, had her second child, Duke had a swollen shoulder right at his amputation site.
The diagnosis was grim: hemangiosarcoma. With the tumor growing rapidly, the family was out of options. Instead of mourning his lost, they decided to celebrate his life and give him the best last day on earth filled with love and happiness, and in total peace.
Check out these beautiful photos of how the Roberts family celebrated Duke’s last day on Earth – full of smiles, memories and love. Please note the photos and captions are taken from the photographer, Robyn Arouty’s website
I Died Today. By Duke Roberts.
“God, I was lucky. Our time was short. But you both gave me a second chance and we lived it up together. You love when I look at you. I’ll never stop.
If you were like me, you probably have a pile of tissues beside you. This is Duke’s adoption video from a few years ago. Just shows what a truly special dog Duke was.
