A dog is always a man’s best friend- and the connections we make with one can never be emulated. And when they pass away, they leave a hole in our heart which, too, can never be filled. This is why it is particularly touching to know that a man took his dying labradoodle up their favorite mountain. Even if it meant taking him in a wheelbarrow so they could take one last walk together.
As it stands, ten-year-old Monty used to love exploring hills and used to walk all over the country with Carlos Fresco, his friend and owner. Fresco had informed SWNS that the pair had been a frequent visitor to the Brecon Beacons- a mountain range located in South Wales.

Labradoodle Takes His Final Walk With Owner
When the labradoodle fell ill and started slowing down, Fresco decided to take him to their favorite location one more time where he stayed with his friends. So he and his beloved pooch would be able to share a final journey together.
Fresco and Monty had recently walked to the peak of Pen y Fan together, with the dog reaching the summit using the aid of a wheelbarrow. Numerous walkers along the way stopped to say hello to the owner, and meet Monty.
Monty the labradoodle passed away on June 21st, 2021 after he took his final stroll. He had been in an 18-month-battle with leukemia. Although the dog did initially respond well to chemotherapy, he was unable to beat the disease when it came back.
Fresco stated, “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.”
Monty the labradoodle’s owner has thanked everyone for the part they played in his journey over the last decade
Fresco is absolutely grateful to everyone who supported the labradoodle on his final walk to the hill. He extended his thanks to everyone who treated the dog well over the last ten years, too. Fresco maintained that “the little guy touched so many lives. He made everyone he came into contact with a smile and take a moment to reflect how sometimes life’s not bad.”
