"[He] loved nothing more than interacting with other people. He loved attention – if you stopped, he'd put a paw on you, or rest his chin on your thigh, looking at you as if to say, ‘stroke me again,'" Carlos shared.

When Monty’s leash of life grew short due to a battle with leukemia, Carlos refused to sit and stay idle. Instead, he embarked on a barking-mad adventure with his faithful pup, determined to make every moment count. Carlos opted to take Monty on one last hike–his favorite part of life.

With a wheelbarrow as their trusty chariot, his favorite blanket, and toy Tigger, they set off on one last paw-some hike up Pen Y Fan, Monty’s favorite mountain trail in the Brecon Beacons of Wales.

As they journeyed along the winding path, Monty’s tail wagged furiously, his eyes sparkling with excitement. Despite his ailing health, he remained a puppy in spirit, soaking up the scents of the great outdoors and relishing in the joy of the moment. Along the way, they encountered fellow adventurers who couldn’t resist stopping to give Monty a pat and a treat, adding to the paw-ty atmosphere of their final escapade.

With each step, Carlos and Monty forged paw-some memories, their bond growing stronger with every wag and woof. It was a testament to the unbreakable bond between human and hound, a friendship that transcended words and touched the hearts of all who witnessed it.

Saying Goodbye After Final Adventure

Carlos hung on for Father's Day.

“We were sleeping in my friend's conservatory,” Carlos said, “and I saw Monty in the garden in the early hours of the next morning. He came in and curled up at the foot of my bed – and when I woke next, he'd passed away. I think his little heart must have given out."

Monty may have crossed the rainbow bridge, but his legacy of love and loyalty will forever wag on in Carlos’s heart. So let us paws for a moment to celebrate the life of Monty, a doggo who taught us all that life is an adventure best enjoyed with a loyal companion by our side.
