Every dog must have his day. For one black Lab, that day turned out to be his last.

When the Roberts family found out they'd have to put their dog Duke down, they decided to make his final day the best one yet, complete with burgers, a trip to the park and more snuggles than any dog could ask for.

The Robertses had adopted Duke three years ago, knowing he had terminal cancer. When the time came to say goodbye for good, they asked their family friend Robyn Arouty, a photographer who specializes in animal portraits, to create an unforgettable experience for Duke's last day.

A Happy Ending for Dolly Parton's Namesake Stray

Originally posted 07/10/2014 07:00 PM

Looks like there's a fairy tail ending after all for Dolly Parton's furry namesake, who was found alone in a tent at the Glastonbury Music Festival.

The pooch, nicknamed "Doggie Parton," is back in a fur-ever home – just not with Parton.

"In the last five minutes, we got a call from the main people with the government, and they told us that the true owners did come forward," Parton, 68, said in a virtual press conference on Thursday. "They had reported the dog missing. There was a language barrier; I think they were from another country. They got the dog back, and everyone feels good about it."

Adopt Us! These 'Chain Gang' Pups Were Saved from Neglect

Home. Some pets never have one to call their own. We'd like to help change that by introducing you to an extraordinary adoptable pet every week. Today, meet three: Manny, Troy and ShyAsia, 3-month-old pit bull mixes who were recently rescued from a neglectful home.

It's incredibly sad to think that the mother of these precious babies was, and still is, tied up on a chain outside her owner's house and has not been spayed. When she became pregnant several months ago, her owner didn't want anything to do with the puppies; they were tossed outside to die without food or water, says the Eleventh Hour Rescue of Rockaway, New Jersey.
