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.

This Is What It Looks Like When a Blue Whale Capsizes Your Boat

Originally posted 07/08/2014 03:45PM

Photographer Dale Frink's whale-watching expedition ended with the surprise appearance of two blue whales in the one place he didn't expect – right behind his boat.

As he explained on his blog, Frink booked a one-man whale-watching trip outside San Diego on July 2, hoping to get some good shots of he whales in action.

After observing a pair of blue whales, as well as some bottlenose dolphins, Frink and the captain were surprised when one of the whales made a surprise turn, and then disappeared below the surface. Following guidelines, the boat's captain stopped the boat until the par could be sure of the whale's location.

"Unfortunately for us," Frink wrote, "the blue whales eventually resurfaced directly behind the boat without warning, mouths completely open in the middle of another lunge feed. We had little time to react."
