This Guy Took His Terminally Ill Dog On An Epic Adventure Across The Country

From New York to California, this dog had the trip of a lifetime.

Meet Poh, a wonderful, adventurous dog who has recently been diagnosed with a terminal illness. His owner, Neil Rodriguez, decided Poh needed one last hurrah, so they completed an epic bucket list together.

The 15-year-old dog and Rodriguez were ready for an adventure after discovering Poh had inoperable tumors. He introduced himself to the Instagram world and was off from New York to the West Coast.

The veterinarian told Rodriguez that Poh could have as little as a few days left, but Rodriguez had an upcoming DJ gig in Arizona. He told BuzzFeed, “I didn’t want to leave my dog, and I was like, you know what, I’ll just drive to Arizona.”

This one trip ended up turning into a 46-day tour around the U.S., where they visited over 35 cities.
