This heartbreaking video shows a beloved pet dog on his final walk to be put down at the vets.

Murphy the 14-year-old Golden Retriever is seen hobbling down a road as his distraught owner Dale Thompson documents his final moments.

In a moving series of posts on Twitter, Dale said Murphy had been battling cancer for months and managed to make it through Christmas.

But the cancer had spread to Murphy’s throat and nose and nothing more could be done to save him.

Dale said Murphy walked with ‘dignity, clarity and honour’ on his way to the vet for the final time.

He wrote: ‘He left this world the same way he came into it: With style, grace and happy. RIP my friend.

‘There’s not a word that’s been crafted or invented yet which could ever express how broken my heart is today.

‘Simply put, I am lost. My world and my heart has been left with a void that’ll never be filled.

‘Sad is something I’ll be one day after I’ve cried a million tears and walked a million steps but, right now, I’m many miles from sad right now.

‘The cruel reality of love is loss… and my heart just can’t contemplate that now.’

Dale, from Toronto, Canada, said that even at the end, Murphy was happy and tried to get up as he left him for the last time,

He added: ‘I couldn’t tell him enough how sorry I was for doing this and how I regretted every single time I got upset at him or didn’t spend enough time with him too. He was happy.’
