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 ᴅʏɪɴɢ 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 together.

Ten-year-old Monty enjoyed exploring hills and walking all over the country with his owner, Carlos Fresco. Fresco told SWNS that the pair has visited the Brecon Beacons — a mountain range in South Wales — many times 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 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. Many other climbers were surprised and after hearing the story they were touched by the affection between the dog and Carlos Fresco.

Fresco said: “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 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 a 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.

After the trip, a day later the dog was gone forever. Everyone in the Fresco family mourned the dog. He is a close family member. He is a happy, docile, and loving dog.

His ᴅʏɪɴɢ is a great loss to the Fresco family. But as Mr. Fresco said: ” Monty will always be in our hearts, and the family continues to adopt and care for another dog. That love will be maintained forever.”
