Heart-Gripping Photos Show A Man Taking His Sick Dog For ‘One Final Adventure’ In A Wheelbarrow

Carlos Fresco, 57, from London, took his four-legged friend Monty, who was ᴅʏɪɴɢ of ᴄᴀɴᴄᴇʀ, 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.


Carlos travelled 180 miles from London to stay with a pal in Brecon Beacons where he and Monty had previously explored the mountains. The hotelier knew that 10-year-old Monty was too unwell to make the 2,900ft climb up Pen-Y-Fan peak – so he helped by pushing him in a wheelbarrow. And just as incredibly, fellow dog-lovers offered to help the pair up the incline.

“I knew Monty was ᴅʏɪɴɢ as his ᴄᴀɴᴄᴇʀ had returned,” said Carlos. “He was diagnosed 18 months ago and responded very well to chemotherapy. But unfortunately his ʟᴇᴜᴋᴀᴇᴍɪᴀ returned eight weeks ago and he declined very rapidly.”

Carlos, of West London, said his pet “loved hills” so he had to improvise. “He loved hill walks and we improvised and took him on trips around your wonderful beacons. 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.”

Unfortunately, Monty’s health declined over the week and he died on the 21st of June. “Monty ᴘᴀssᴇᴅ ᴀᴡᴀʏ at the foot of my bed on Monday morning. Aged ten. The little fella hung on for Father’s Day and is now at peace” Carlos shared.

“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,” Fresco told SWNS. “He was truly a special boy. God bless and goodnight little fella.”
