Duke The Dog: Final Days - PHOTOS + VIDEO

The Roberts family knew they had to put their beloved dog, Duke, to sleep after cancer ravaged his body. And so, they decided to make his final day on Earth his most special.

His owner, Jordan Roberts, scheduled his euthanising with a US, Houston veterinarian for Monday, July 7, according to this site, http://www.robynarouty.com/i-died-today/ - they took the pics.

Before saying goodbye to Duke, the family wanted  to take him out to enjoy special things Roberts asked her friend and animal lover, photographer Robyn Arouty, to capture the dog's final moments. Here is a tribute video, with photos below:

    And I ate a lot of hamburgers. We had a party.

    And I laughed.
  • Robyn Arouty Photography
    And I thought about how much I'm going to miss it here.
  • Robyn Arouty Photography
    We told jokes.
  • Robyn Arouty Photography
    We were serious.

    My friends from next door came to see me. They’re twins. When someone offered them one of my hamburgers, one said, “No thank you. I don’t want to take any from Dukey.”

    Kristen came to see me. She’s a hoot. She’s my groomer. And my buddy.

    While we were waiting for the vet to come, Kristen said we were going for a walk. Then someone said, “How about a play in the water at the splash park down the street?” So off we went!

    “You know I’m going to miss you, right?”
  • Robyn Arouty Photography
    "And you too, right?"
  • Robyn Arouty Photography
    “I need you to help me watch over my family.”
  • Robyn Arouty Photography
    “Did you hear me? This is all I want!”

    We got wet today.
  • Robyn Arouty Photography
    We smiled today.
  • Robyn Arouty Photography
    We felt grateful today.
  • Robyn Arouty Photography
    We broke the rules today.

    I listened to the kids play off in the distance. And thought about my two babies at home. I loved protecting them.
  • Robyn Arouty Photography
    I relaxed today.
  • Robyn Arouty Photography
    I felt no pain. Even though the tumor grew so big.
  • Robyn Arouty Photography
    I felt the love today.
  • Robyn Arouty Photography
    I said goodbye to my beautiful friend Kira. She “saw” me standing over everybody before the doctor said it was time. I was excited & jumping & happy.
  • Robyn Arouty Photography
    Well, I didn’t say goodbye. I said ’til we meet again.
  • Robyn Arouty Photography
    God, I was lucky. Our time was short. But you both gave me a second chance & we lived it up together. You love when I look at you. I’ll never stop.
  • Robyn Arouty Photography
    Always, Dukey.
