Hundreds join in on #WalkwithWalnut for last dog walk

07/11/2016
Hundreds of people have joined an English dog owner as he took his whippet on a final walk before the dog was put down.
 
Walnut's owner Mark Woods put the call out on social media with the hashtag #walkwithwalnut, inviting anyone to join him and his dog on their last walk on Porth Beach in Newquay.
 
Mr Wood's whippet lived to the "grand age of 18" as his owner put it, but had to be euthanised on Saturday.
 
Little did he expect hundreds of people to turn up with their dogs at the beach that morning.
 
Sadly Walnut was put down at 11.56am on Saturday. He was surrounded by his loving family and their three other whippets - Monty, Nelson and Charlie.
 
"He went very quickly and in my arms. I am writing this post because I owe it to everyone who has supported myself, my family and most importantly Walnut," Mr Woods wrote on Facebook.
