Owner Takes Dying Dog On Cross-Country Road Trip
Poh was diagnosed with cancer in February, so owner Thomas Neil Rodriguez is treating his furry friend to a bucket-list-style road trip.
"Poh's bringing us along on his adventure," Thomas Neil Rodriguez told WFTS.
This is Poh the dog. He's from New York City.
And this is Poh with his owner, Thomas Neil Rodriguez. He's also from New York City and works as a DJ.
The two, along with Rodriguez's fiancée, are journeying across the U.S.
That's because Poh, who's 15-years-old, was diagnosed with several health problems in February.
"We went in for a checkup and unfortunately they found multiple tumors," Rodriguez said.
So on March 6, the three took off on a sort-of "bucket list" road trip.
"The reason why we've done all this is to create memories that we can focus on so we can focus on the life instead of the death," Rodriguez said.
He kept up an Instagram page titled "Poh the Dog's Big Adventure" to let others keep up with their travels. So far, the page has garnered more than 112,000 followers.
According to his veterinarian, Poh still has a bit longer to live, so Rodriguez is hoping to continue their road trip. This time, they're heading to the Midwest.
