Hundreds of people joined a dog owner for his whippet’s final walk in Cornwall yesterday after an invitation to do so went viral.

Before putting his pet of 18 years to sleep, Mark Woods used social media to encourage people to share Walnut’s last visit to Porth Beach by launching the “WalkWithWalnut” hashtag.

18,000 people have liked Mark’s Facebook post which explains his decision to have Walnut euthanized because of his deteriorating health.

Hours after his final trip to the beach, Walnut passed away.  His owner and friend has since taken to Facebook to thank those who supported him both physically in Cornwall and virtually from around the world.

“Walnut passed away this morning at 11.56am.  The family and our three whippets, Monty, Nelson and Charlie were also in the room,” wrote Mark.  “He went very quickly and in my arms.”

“Thank you to the hundreds of people that attended the walk this morning and to all those that had their own walks with their beloved pets at 9.30am all around the world.”

Those following the movement online have used Twitter to document the impact Walnut’s story has had on them.

“If #walkwithwalnut has done something, it’s restored my faith in the compassion of humanity, in a particularly dreary year,” wrote one person.

“Did our #walkwithwalnut in the mizzly rain, weeping for his family & others who know that pain.  Fly high sweetie,” said another. 




Not entirely sure why everyone is surprised by the latest dating app to hit the market.

There’s something for every kind of preference out in the big bad world of internet dating. From beard lovers to sailor lovers, even people with foot fetishes are being catered for. There was just one giant gaping hole in the market: a dating site for dog lovers.

Fear not! Tindog has arrived, and the ‘puppy love’ puns are only going to get worse.

Who hasn’t spent a Saturday night doing the Netflix and chill routine with their canine companion and thought, “If only me and Rover could find love online”.

Any good dog owner surely feels that obligation to ensure their four-legged friend finds their soulmate, did Lady and the Tramp teach you nothing?

And now, you can. Tindog is essentially the same as it’s more humanist sister app, except it’s targeted at dog owners. Get thee to the nearest Italian for spaghetti and meatballs, immediately.

Instead of spending hours swiping left or right trying to figure out who’s your match from a cryptic group profile photo, you get to stare at puppies all day. And night, if you’re so inclined.

Most of the users are going to be completely naked, fair warning. But that’s expected- they are dogs after all.

It feels like a winner for a lot of lonely souls with cute pooches out there, because who could swipe left on an adorable Husky pup? Or what about all the Pug lovers out there?

Doggie lovers are going to be all over this, we can feel it.

Founder and CEO (and absolute genius) Julien Muller said in a press release:

“Dogs bring so much joy and love, that they really have the power to connect us. That’s why we wanted to make it easy for dog lovers to meet new people.”

Just like Tinder, when Tindog users match, they can chat and arrange a pet play-date, or an actual date sans puppies.

But let’s be honest, there’s probably going to be a lot of guys borrowing their family pets for romantic strolls about town.
