Everyone is too emotional about Walnut the dog on This Morning - including Eamonn and Ruth

Both Eamonn Holmes and his wife Ruth Langsford broke down in tears as they interviewed a man whose dog is due to be put down on Saturday.

Mark Woods and his dog Walnut have been best of friends for 18 years, making cherished memories on their walks along the rugged coastlines of North Cornwall.

After poor Walnut’s old age damaged his health, Mark launched a Facebook appeal calling for people to join the pair for a final “Walk with Walnut”, hours before his pet is euthanised.

Mark spoke about the appeal on ITV’s This Morning on Friday, and the sad subject matter proved too much for the interviewers…

But they weren’t the only ones to be hit in the feels as dog owners everywhere posted pictures of their canine companions in solidarity with Walnut…

And there was this. Which is everything…

If you would like to join Mark and Walnut on the walk of a lifetime, see the Facebook appeal here:
