The story of a dog’s last day with his family and friends is extremely touching.

Dukey, a labrador retriever from Texas, was euthanized on July 7. He suffered from a cancerous bone tumor and doctors had removed one of his front legs to save his life. But the tumor spread.

So, when Dukey’s owner decided it was time for him to go, she called photographer, Robyn Arouty, who put together a beautiful photo essay that will bring tears to your eyes. It’s called “I Died Today, by Duke Roberts.”

The following are some of Robyn’s photos of Dukey:
