A devastated pet owner carried his dying dog for one heartbreaking final walk before he was put to sleep.
George, the 15-year-old pet , was too ill to walk around the beauty spot where they have enjoyed thousands of trips together over the years.
So owner Dave Wright carried his loyal dog to make sure George enjoyed one final outing.
Holding back tears, Mr Wright said: "We have had 15 great years together and as he is getting put down this week, I thought it only right that we take one last walk together."
Mr Wright took his beloved dog everywhere with him - even on motorbike trips.
When Mr Wright visited his girlfriend in Belfast, and left George with her for a while, the pooch waited for a good time to say his goodbyes and hightailed it back to his owner's home in Thornfield, Carrickfergus.
