Owner invites public to join him on dog's final walk

Walnut

A dog owner is inviting people to join him and his pet for their final walk together before his beloved pet is put to sleep.

Having taken the difficult decision to have 18-year-old Walnut put down, Mark Woods has decided to have a celebration of Walnut's life on his favourite beach in Cornwall, Porth Beach.

Mr Woods posted the open invitation on Facebook to let people know that the walk will take place this Saturday, November 12, 2016 and the pet will be put down later that day.

The post on Mark Woods' Facebook page read:

“Sadly I am having to have Walnut euthanised on Saturday 12th November and so we will be having a last walk together on his beloved Porth Beach at 9.30am.

“I would love it if dog lovers/owners and friends would join us for a celebration of Walnut on his favourite Porth Beach.

“He has had an incredible life and having reached the grand age of 18 is ready for his final sleep. Hope to see you on Saturday.”
