I don't mean to make us all bawl our eyes out on a Sunday Funday but like... I have to share this. 

A photographer captured the final day of a beautiful dog, Dukey, before they had to let him go due to a large tumor/disease. 

The captions are what ripped me apart. Here are some of the pics [and the captions], but click through to see all of it. 

[I ate a lot of hamburgers. We had a party.]

[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 CAN'T HANDLE THIS IN THE STUDIO RIGHT NOW. Oh my goodness. If you've ever lost a dog, the pain feels so real and fresh and personal.... but this really was beautiful.
