Man Takes Dying Dog For One Last Walk Up Mountain In Wheelbarrow

Monty the labradoodle passed away last Monday morning after an 18-month battle with leukaemia.

Before he died, his owner Carlos Fresco took him on one last journey together to the top of Pen y Fan, the highest peak in south Wales.

“He loved hill walks and we improvised and took him on trips around your wonderful beacons,” Carlos told The Brecon and Radnor Express. “Although he was weak he enjoyed all the fuss and attention received by so many 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.”

Carlos travelled 180 miles from London to Brecon Beacons for the final adventure.

“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 said.

“He was truly a special boy. God bless and goodnight little fella.”
