Walnut the dog has had a good long life – but judging by the hundreds of fans escorting him down the beach, he’s going to have one last pawesome memory before he goes.

This 18-year-old whippet and his owner Mark Woods have had a quiet, happy companionship in Cornwall, England. Due to the hound’s old age, however, Walnut’s health recently started deteriorating.

Mark knew Walnut was going to be put down soon, so as a way of giving his beloved friend one last hurrah, he posted a note on social media saying that any dog lovers or locals were free to join him for Walnut’s last walk on his favorite route – Porth Beach.

When he showed up with his weakened pooch in his arms, however, he was shocked to see dozens of strangers from near and far ready to follow them down the beach.

Though Walnut didn’t have the strength to walk the whole way by himself, he was able to go for a bit of a jog and play with the other pups before tiring out.

Dogs may not have the same nine lives that cats do, but I think we can all agree that this whippet lived one to remember.
