Devoted Dog Dad Takes Ill Labradoodle on a Final Mountain Hike in a Wheelbarrow to Say Goodbye

These touching pictures show a man taking his dying pet dog up their favorite mountain in a wheelbarrow for one last walk.

 Carlos Fresco took his 10-year-old Labradoodle named Monty for a hike at the Brecon Beacons range in Wales, a site the pair climbed together several times




These touching pictures show a person taking his dying pet dog up their favorite mountain during a wheelbarrow for one last walk.



Ten-year-old Monty enjoyed exploring hills and walked everywhere the country together with his owner, Carlos Fresco. Fresco told SWNS that the pair has visited the Brecon Beacons — a range in South Wales — repeatedly over the years and have even summited the range's three peaks.



When Monty the labradoodle began to hamper and have become ill, Fresco decided to return to the Beacons another time together with his pet, staying with friends in Brecon, so he and his beloved pooch could share a final journey together.



Fresco and Monty recently traveled up to the height of Pen y Fan together, with the dog reaching the highest of the mountain with the help of a wheelbarrow. Numerous walkers stopped the duo on their trip up to mention hello and meet Monty.





Monty gave up the ghost on summer solstice , shortly after this final stroll, following an 18-month battle with leukemia. The canine responded well to chemotherapy initially but was unable to beat the disease when it returned.






Fresco said: "Although he was weak, he enjoyed all the fuss and a spotlight received by numerous well-wishers.




"People on the hills were so kind and equally so sad at his deteriorating condition. In fact, total strangers asked if they might share in pushing Monty on his last journey — many total strangers shed a tear as we all love our little four-legged friends dearly."




Fresco is grateful to all or any or any those that offered support on Monty's final hill walk and to all who treated the dog well in his ten years.





"That little guy touched numerous lives. He made everyone he came into contact with smile and take a flash to reflect how sometimes life's not that bad," Fresco said. "Our little companions are never judgemental, are always there expecting you, and offer comfort when things haven't gone well.



"The little fella persisted for Father's Day and is now asleep ," he added of Monty.
