duke’s last day

Our furchildren bring us much happiness and unconditional love but there comes a time when we inevitably have to say goodbye. This is Duke’s goodbye. It is the most beautiful yet heart breaking goodbye.

You have been warned, let the water works begin.

I Died Today. By Duke Roberts.

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

And I laughed.

hi

 

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

hi

 

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

hi

 

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!

“I need you to help me watch over my family.”

“Did you hear me? This is all I want!”

hi

 

We got wet today.

hi

 

We smiled today.

hi

 

I relaxed today.

hi

 

I felt no pain. Even though the tumor grew so big.

hi

 

I felt the love today.

hi

 

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.

hi

 

Always, Dukey.

hi

 

Give your furry one some extra love today.
