Dogs are known for their exceptional love and devotion to their human companions. They form strong, lifelong bonds with us and are known for their unconditional love. This is why they are beloved by people all over the world. As time goes on, their bond with us only deepens and becomes even stronger. Whether they are providing comfort and support during difficult times, or simply bringing joy and happiness to our daily lives, dogs are truly a special and integral part of our lives.

When you adopt a dog, and it becomes part of your family, anything bad that happens to the dog will also make you sad. This is what happened to Carlos Fresco, who had a special bond with his 10-year-old dog named Monty. Carlos loved Monty like a friend and family member.

Monty had leukemia and received chemotherapy treatment, but unfortunately, the leukemia returned and greatly affected his health.

Fresco noticed that his dear friend Monty was approaching the end of his life and was experiencing a lot of pain. As someone who deeply cared for Monty and loved him without conditions, Fresco wanted to make sure Monty’s remaining days were enjoyable.

He decided to take Monty to their favorite places and play with him. He put Monty in a wheelbarrow and pushed him to all the places they used to go. Monty was sitting in the wheelbarrow very nicely.

It was very emotional to see Fresco take Monty to places where they had shared happy memories. They went on hikes and mountain tops, and many other hikers and strangers joined them to keep Monty company. It was clear that Monty was very happy during these outings.

Monty liked going on hikes, and his favorite hike was to a mountain top in Wales. Fresco said this was his way of honoring Monty, who was a very happy person and made everyone around him happy too.

Old, I’ve lost my Bird Dog Pretty girl at only 7yrs old from cancer, I’ve lost my lil weenie dog BayBay at age 18yrs old from massive strokes.I miss them every minute of every day but I have great memories of them all. May you rest in peace Monty your Daddy truly loved you sweet Fur baby..

  4. So good to see a happy fur boy story and some one who loved his dog as they should be. Thanks for sharing.

  5. That was the sweetest thing, and you could see the bond between the two of them was a really tight bond. It’s so hard when a pet youve been with so long passes. Just like losing a family member.

  6. What a heart- warming story. You are a kind man, and I know Monty appreciates everything you did and do for him. Cherish all the memories you made with him.

    • Angela Borrelli:
      I totally agree. Our pets love 💕 us unconditionally losing a pet is like losing a child they have 4 paws 🐾🐾. My husband died a short time ago he had 2 that stayed in his computer room with him all the time rescue dogs Sandy a Labrador retriever and a Labrador/golden retriever mixed. They passed away before he did, I had them both cremated saved their ashes .2 days before his military funeral I believed their remains should be buried with him to rest Charles, Sandy, Sabrina I miss you very much but I am happy you are at peace ☮️ God be with you rest in peace.

  11. WoW!!!! This Is so close to home. Im a puddle.
    I’m greatful for this beautiful man with heart and soul larger than the universe.your
    Mum was amasing raising you
    I’m so moved that I’m actually!!

  12. Such a sweet puppy. I wish my dog could take me out and do such things during my final days. I love you Chauncellor!

  13. What an incredible relationship—such love is heartwarming! I love my fur babies like family as well. It is sooo hard to lose them—especially after living out such wonderful lives with us!!!!

  14. I love how humans have such a connection with their fur babies may you have fun at the rainbow Bridge, may your heart heal. God Bless.

  15. It touched my heart that as sick as the dog was his owner took his to his favorite places, that they shared together one last time! Thats what uncondiyional love is,, its a beautiful thing to say the least of how i describe it! R. I. P. BEAUTIFUL PUP

  16. What a beautiful relationship they had. I don’t think that they saw themselves as Man?Dog or Pet and Owner, I believe that they just saw themselves as “Related with Love”. They both gave to each other and received from each other. If there is anything that is “NOT RIGHT” with this relationship…….It is that it is hard as hell when it comes to an end. I know that I cried when I had to take my cat to the vet for the last time. It took me 2 hours to decide to go….half an hour crying in the car holding him……1/2 in the Vet room…..another 1/2 hour in the car without him…..2 months realizing that it was ME suffering NOT HIM! We had him for almost 16 wonderful years. Hope he knew how much he was loved and how many wonderful memories all our family carry in their hearts. LOVE TO YOU FOR BEING SUCH A GOOD FRIEND TO YOUR BELOVED DOG> JEAN

  17. I have read your beautiful true story and it has touched me deeply. Am finding it difficult to describe how I feel about beautiful Monty. I feel quite emotional because I too am an animal lover particularity dogs. I always have had digs. You did the most beautiful and amazing thing for Monty carrying him so gently and in comfort. The photo of both of you on top of the mountain is so touching . You have reminded me to try to give back to my 2 furry doggies Molly and Masie as much love and companionship as they give me so unconditionally. Thank you so much and thank you especially Monty. What a truly beautiful loving true story ❤️ 💖 💕

  18. A true earth angel ! You are blessed to have such love ! I know this feeling! To give unconditional love , knowing the end , is a blessing for this beautiful fur soul! My girls Coco and Mandy are my joy , everyday ! And I will do as you have done for Monty , be there till the end , and then some ! The memories are priceless ❤️🙏

  19. I’m sorry, but the last thing I’d want to do is subject my pet who was in great pain to an outing; the kindest thing would be to let it go peacefully with love and kisses. Maybe the poor dog in the story was taking pain medicines, I certainly hope so.

  20. I’ve had dogs since I can remember. When I was small (kindergarten age) I had a pack of dogs that followed me around. It was before leash laws and many other things society uses to take away your freedoms. I’ve loved them, relied on them, and trusted them my whole life. When I had to put my last dog down, I decided I couldn’t take the loss of another one. Haven’t had one in many years now and I miss the company, loyalty and love.

  21. What A touching story. I volunteer at the spca and it’s heartbreaking when folks bring in their dogs because they got too old or they just don’t want them. Thank God for loving people like yourself. I’m going through my fur babies twilight years and my heart is breaking. I’m not sure he’ll make it through the end of this year. May God bless all dog lovers and all the fur babies who need us.

  22. What a beautiful gesture for a dying friend and companion.I loved seeing Monty strapped to you on that peak. I lost my dog in December to old age and am only now feeling I could open up my heart to another rescue dog as I am lost without his presence. They do fill you with joy……

  23. The end is always the hardest, glad you had the courage to make his last few days happy ones for him because I know it had to be breaking your heart. You are an awesome soul.

  24. You did one of the greatest things you could have done for Monty, be with him during his last days. That’s all Monty would have wanted, is to be with you. I loved this story.

  25. I think that man loved his dog very much and what he did was amazing. He did the best for his friend. I cried for him and the dog. He will always love his friend.

  26. I think that man loved his dog very much and what he did was amazing. He did the best for his friend. I cried for him and the dog. He.will always love his friend.

  27. Dogs are very visible creatures. Site, sound & smell brings them great memories. At least with mine I have observed this. It brings tears to my eyes sometimes. Like the sound of a Harley that would perk my dogs up, only that wasn’t who they hoped and longed for.
    I remember the look in my dog face as she gazed at places she loved in her final week as i took her by wagon. Those eyes showed me happiness, gratitude, and thank you for the time is near. I’m certain Monty’s did as well. We keep those final memories also even though we lose our beloved doggos. Monty and his Kahu (kahoo) love is strong

  28. Dogs are phenomenal. all are beautiful pictures and gorgeous memories; I can’t just pick one!! I want to thank Fresco for giving an adventure of a lifetime to Monty. I am very sure that Monty remembers them all. May Monty rest in peace, be playing with my Delilah up in heaven, and again thank you so much Fresco, Love Leo & Delilah.

  29. So many beautiful stories about our best friends. We cat-lovers have similar stories. Although I couldn’t take my cat with me to places I love, he was my best friend and bossed me around for 13 1/2 years. At the end of each work day he watched for me through the side lights of our front door then followed and love me until I had to go out again. We beat cancer once, then God gave us 5 extra years of love before cancer overtook him. Master passed away 7 days after my loving younger sister and 1 month before my best human friend in the world passed away, all in 2020. My loss of him still hurts my heart. I keep thanking God for all the love and memories. If I wrote a story about him, I would entitle it Tears of Love.
