Last week, Mark Woods of Cornwall, England, shared a heartbreaking post on Facebook. On Saturday, his beloved Whippet, Walnut would be put to rest. But, before Walnut’s final sleep, Woods asked dog lovers to join him one last time in celebration of his best friend’s life as they walked along the dog’s favorite beach.
The Facbook post read: Walk with Walnut 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.”
Hundreds of dog lovers showed up to support Woods and celebrate Walnut’s life.
Walnut crossed the Rainbow Bridge with his family, including canine brothers Monty, Nelson and Charlie, by his side. “He went very quickly in my arms,” Woods wrote on Facebook, “I am writing this post because I owe it to everyone who has supported myself, my family and most importantly Walnut.”
Rest in peace, sweet Walnut.
