Ever since he announced his prostate cancer, we all knew about Ryan O'Neal's uphill battle.
Now that it turns out his condition a lot worse than he proclaimed, he's turning to his best friend to get him through it all.
O'Neal took his four-legged companion on a walk along the Malibu beach, putting on a brave face with his pooch.
We hope he's on the path for a full recovery!
