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

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

Carlos Fresco took his 10-year-old Labrador named Monty on a hike in the Brecon Beacons in Wales. The two climbed this place several times along each other!

These touching images show the man taking his dying pet dog on a wheelbarrow on their favorite mountain for the last time.

10-year-old Monty enjoys exploring the hills and walking around the country with his host 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 submitted the range’s three peaks.

When Monty, the labradoodle began to hamper and have become ill, Fresco decided to return to the Beacons one more time with his pet!

Fresco and Monty recently traveled together to the height of Pen y Fan, and the dog reached the highest point of the mountain with the help of a wheelbarrow. Many walkers stopped the pair during the trip, greeted and met with Monty.

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

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 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,”
