Man Pushes His Dying Dog in Wheelbarrow to Top of Mountain for "One Last Adventure Together"

Here's a nice breather of a story.

I really want them to figure out how to extend the human lifespan, and naturally, they'll have to test the procedure out on dogs first.

They die far too young.

A dog owner whose pet dog was dying from leukaemia pushed him to the top of Pen y Fan in a wheelbarrow for "one final adventure together".

Carlos Fresco, a hotelier from London, had owned 10-year-old Monty since he was a puppy and the pair had always loved going on long walks together all around the UK.

But, after the Labradoodle fell ill 18-months ago, he realised they only had a certain amount of time left and knew exactly what he had to do.

"At first Monty responded well to the chemotherapy, but sadly the leukaemia returned several weeks ago and he started fading fast," said the 57-year-old.

...

"The next day I put Monty in it on top of a load of blankets and started wheeling him to the top of Pen y Fan. He loved it and the reaction he got from other walkers was amazing.

"They all took turns in helping to push the barrow, and Monty really enjoyed that because he'd always adored people and being made a fuss of."

"I was bowled over by the kindness we were shown, to be honest - total strangers taking the time out to say 'hello' and lend a hand in getting him to the summit."

However, Monty's health continued to decline during their stay in Brecon and he finally passed away at the foot of Carlos' bed a few days later.
