The bond created between a human being and a canine is one that often cannot be described with words.
Dogs are truly our best companions in life, and their loss is a scar that one cannot heal during his entire life.
Therefore, photos of a man taking his dying pet dog up his favorite mountain using a wheelbarrow for one last walk have broken the hearts of many!
Ten-year-old Monty enjoyed exploring hills and walks all over the country with his owner, Carlos Fresco, 57, from London.
Many times over the years, the duo has traveled up to the peak of Pen y Fan in the Brecon Beacons, Wales, and they even summited the three peaks.
After he realized the Labradoodle wasn’t very well, Carlos decided to return to the beacons so they could have one last journey together — with the help of a wheelbarrow.

Carlos explained that he knew his dog was nearing death since his cancer returned, and he began to decline rapidly. The dog passed away on June 21 after an 18-month battle with leukemia.
Carlos said that although Monty was weak on the trip, ‘he enjoyed all the fuss and attention’ from well-wishers.
‘People on the hills were so kind and equally so sad at his deteriorating condition. “ Carlos added:
‘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.’
He added that Monty died at the foot of his bed but added he held on so the family could celebrate Father’s Day. He continued:
‘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.’ Monty passed away after an 18-month battle with cancer on June 21
