Meet Tonino Vitale, an Italian dad who lives with his 13-year-old Labrador named Dylan. After noticing that his dog’s energy level was going down, he immediately brought him to the hospital. That’s when he learned that Dylan had arthritis and couldn’t run or walk anymore because of his hurting joints.
Vitale knew all too well that Dylan wouldn’t live long enough. So, he wanted to make the remaining years of his life to be as normal as possible. That’s when he decided to develop an ingenious plan to take him out for an everyday walk to get some fresh air.
The plan was to create a cart where Dylan could sit and be carried around by Vitale during their walks. Soon enough, his idea became a reality—Dylan got to go out for a walk and enjoy the scenery of the places they visit. The owner then realized that their everyday walks helped Dylan get back to being the usual happy dog.
Dylan means a lot to Vitale because he was the only one there for him when he was grieving after his father passed away. So, as his owner, he will also do everything to make life easier for his beloved dog. Dylan deserves only the best, and Vitale is bound to give it to him until his last breath.
During one of the pair’s walks, their neighbors decided to film them. The video went viral, raking thousands of views and comments. Those who have seen the video couldn’t help but adore Vitale for being dedicated to caring for his senior dog.
Dylan and his owner’s bond was unique and unbreakable. Even if Dylan was sick, Vitale thought of a way to make life easier for him. Indeed, the senior dog was more than lucky to have Vitale as his parent, and he couldn’t ask for anything more.

So you want to know more about me, eh? Well, I am a Canadian, husband, and father of two young men.
I would say boys but they are not really “boys” anymore. They are 19 and 17. But they will always be my little ones. :-)
And, of course, we also have a dog. He is an Affenpinscher. Also affectionately known as a Monkey Dog.
His name is Monty. Yes, it is after Monty Python as he is a funny, crazy character.
Dogs have always been a part of my life. My parents started and owned a Dog and Cat boarding kennel just 20 minutes north of Victoria, on Vancouver Island, in British Columbia.
I started this website as a way to give back to the dog community. Which is full of many extraordinary dogs and owners doing many different and exciting things.
I hope you come back often to enjoy the wondrous stories I find.
Thank You for your time and interest.
