Photos of a Dog’s Last Day on Earth Will Break Your Heart

Robyn Arouty

I don’t usually start my day with a good cry, but when I do it’s because of stories like this. Photographer Robyn Arouty’s account of Jordan Robert’s dog Duke’s last day is both beautiful and heartbreaking.

I can relate to this bittersweet story. My wife and I had to put down the best darn dog that ever lived some years ago, and to this day I can’t listen to “Winter Time” by Steve Miller and not get all sentimental over our last day with Fluke. (That’s the song that was playing as the drugs were administered and he drifted off to sleep.)

If you can make it to the end without ugly crying, you’re a braver person than I am. Or you have no soul. Kidding. But not really.

I Died Today. By Duke Roberts.

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

And I thought about how much I’m going to miss it here.
