This Story Of A Dying Dog’s Last Day Is Beautiful And Utterly Heartbreaking

Get ready for some serious tears.


Meet Duke Roberts.

Duke, a black Labrador living in Houston, was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in his leg a few years ago. Osteosarcoma is the most common bone cancer in dogs. The tumors associated with the illness are aggressive and readily metastasize.

Duke had his front leg removed, but the tumor only grew bigger and ultimately started to separate his ribs, making him increasingly uncomfortable.

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

And I laughed.


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


We told jokes.
