Touching pictures show a man taking his dying pet dog up his favourite mountain using a wheelbarrow for one last walk.

Ten-year-old Monty enjoyed exploring hills and walks all over the country with his owner, Carlos Fresco, 57, from London.

Carlos and Monty travelled up to the peak of Pen y Fan in the Brecon Beacons, Wales, where they had visited many times over the years - and even summited the three peaks. After becoming aware the Labradoodle wasn't very well, Carlos decided to return to the beacons, so they could share one last journey together - with the aid of a wheelbarrow.

Carlos said he knew Monty was dying because his cancer returned, and he began to decline rapidly.

Monty passed away on June 21 after an 18-month battle with leukaemia. Carlos said that although Monty was weak on the trip, 'he enjoyed all the fuss and attention' from well wishers.

He said: '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.

'I would like very much to thank them all for their support, encouragement and genuine concern over Monty.

'That little guy touched so many lives. Made everyone he came into contact with smile and just take a moment to reflect how sometimes life's not that bad.'

Carlos added that Monty died at the foot of his bed but added he held on to the family could celebrate Father's Day. He added: 'Our little companions are never judgemental, are always there waiting for you and offer comfort when things haven't gone well.

'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.

'He was truly a special boy. God bless and goodnight little fella.'
