One last walk: A man took his dying dog up to his favorite mountain with a wheelbarrow for one last time.
Carlos Fresco, 57, from London, took his four-legged friend Monty, who was dying of cancer, on one last walk. The 10-year-old dog’s favorite activity was going on long mountain walks and exploring the hills, so his owner wanted to surprise him with one last journey before he goes to a better place.
As Daily Mail reports, Carlos and Monty traveled up to the peak of Pen y Fan in the Brecon Beacons, Wales. The pair had visited the place many times before, as it was the Labradoodle’s favorite spot.
With the help of a wheelbarrow, Carlos took Monty to the beacons for their last adventure together.
Sadly, the 10-year-old pupper passed away on June 21 after suffering an 18-month battle with leukemia.
But during his last days, Monty was overwhelmed with “all the fuss and attention” from well-wishers.
“People on the hills were so kind and equally so sad at his deteriorating condition. In fact, total strangers asked if they could share in pushing Monty on his last journey – many total strangers shed a tear as we all love dearly our little four-legged friends.”
“I would like very much to thank them all for their support, encouragement, and genuine concern over Monty. That little guy touched so many lives. Made everyone he came into contact with smile and just take a moment to reflect how sometimes life’s not that bad.”
Expressing his love for dogs, Monty’s owner said:
“Our little companions are never judgemental, are always there waiting for you and offer comfort when things haven’t gone well. I would like to thank all the wonderful people that we met in Brecon and on the hills for their true kindness and genuine sympathy.
He was truly a special boy. God bless and goodnight little fella.”
