The last day of a Labrador retriever in Houston was documented by its owners who wanted to give their furry friend a joyful farewell. The photos, though bittersweet, have brought happiness to numerous pet owners online. Dukey, the dog, was suffering from cancer and was given a special goodbye party with hamburgers, tearful goodbyes, and a final trip to the park. A blog post was published featuring all the pictures from that day, including the exact moment Dukey passed away. The photographer, a friend of the owners, wrote the post in Dukey’s voice, and titled it ‘I died today,’ which is heart-wrenching.
On Dukey’s final day, Robyn Arouty, a photographer, captured the moments as he bid his farewell. Jordan Roberts, the owner, had to make the tough decision to put him down. The poignant photographs captured Dukey in his last moments, showcasing his love and devotion towards his owner.
A viral post by Robyn Arouty tells the story of Dukey, a three-legged dog who recently passed away due to cancer. In the post, Dukey narrates his last-day party where he ate an abundance of hamburgers. Despite losing one leg to cancer years ago, Dukey was always happy and still able to enjoy life until the cancer returned and began causing him serious discomfort. His owner, Jordan Roberts, made the difficult decision to put Dukey down as his tumor was growing rapidly and there were no other options available. The post has gained significant attention and touched the hearts of many readers.
Dukey indulged in a delicious feast of burgers and later visited a nearby park for some leisure time.
Ailing dog: Dukey had the opportunity to frolic in a water park designed for children, despite his sickness. With only three legs after losing one to cancer a while back, the tumor had resurfaced. Jordan Roberts, the owner, mentioned that “His tumor was expanding rapidly and we had run out of alternatives. Although he would recuperate during the day, his nights were getting increasingly difficult.”
Cheers to the final day: Dukey’s cancer was temporarily cured after his amputation, but unfortunately, it resurfaced again.
Dukey, the beloved dog, may have a bittersweet story, but it has gained significant attention from major websites due to the happiness he displayed in his final moments. Despite facing insurmountable odds, Dukey lived each moment with great enthusiasm, as seen in the viral photos shared on Buzzfeed, Reddit, and other sites. In one photo, Dukey is having a blast in a children’s water park, breaking all the rules. However, the joyful moments end when a veterinary professional administers a shot, and Dukey’s owner can’t hide her overwhelming grief as her faithful friend peacefully passes away. In Dukey’s final moments, he felt no pain and was surrounded by love, as stated in his voice.
In the near future, there will be an improvement in Dukey’s condition. The gathering concluded at a picnic spot located in a Houston park where Dukey was able to spend his final moments without any pain or discomfort.
Emotional moment: As the time approached for Dukey to rest eternally, those present found it tough to hold back their tears.
Last farewells: Eventually, it was time to bid a final farewell to the beloved canine, and everyone had to do so with a heavy heart.
Dukey was euthanized in the presence of his emotional owners and friends by a veterinary professional who visited the park, and according to them, no pain was felt during the process.
