For pet owners, our four legged friends become family. We take care of them just as much as they take care of us. They wag their tails, show us goofy faces, and give us unwavering affection. But sadly, after years of treats and toys and walks in the park, we end up having to part ways.

When this family discovered they would have to say goodbye to their beloved dog Duke, they made sure to send him off in style. The emotional day was full of Duke’s favorite things, from hamburgers to water parks, and documented by photographer Robyn Arouty who shared the story on her blog. Due to the high volume of people wanting to hear Duke’s story, the site is currently experiencing some technical difficulties. Below are all the original words, written from Duke’s perspective, that go along with the photos.

Trust me — you need to grab some tissues before you scroll on…
