    A Guy Took His Terminally Ill Dog On A Trip Of A Lifetime

    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."

    Poh got to see everything from an energy healing space in Sedona to Cadillac Ranch in Amarillo, Texas.

    He even got to see the bright lights of the Vegas Strip!

    He also made some furry friends along the way.

    Rodriguez knew that Poh loved being out and about rather than sitting at home waiting for the inevitable. "He has a lot of spirit. He does better on the road than when at home," he said.

    But his favorite place on the road trip had to be anywhere with a spot to swim. "He love, love, LOVES the beach," his owner explained. "Anything with water. In Austin he got to fully submerge for the first time."

    Poh has currently taken over New York and has been going on shorter trips to cities near him.

    Here's to the next set of adventures, Poh!
