Dying Dog Goes On an Epic Adventure Across the Country

Meet Poh, the 15-year-old dog from Queens, NY. Poh's faithful owner, Thomas Neil Rodriguez, found out a few months ago that the dog didn't have much longer to live, so Rodriguez and his fiancée took off on a road trip across the country. Rodriguez told ABC News, "I initially wanted to get him in the Pacific Ocean. I have always wanted him to swim."

Rodriguez said he adopted Poh back in 1999 when the dog was just 8 weeks old, and they have been the best of friends ever since. "I am superblessed that I have actually gotten to do this," he said. "People think I take care of Poh, but Poh takes care of me."

The group set out to cross the country on March 6 and traveled 12,000 miles and visited 35 cities. Rodriguez documented the trip on Poh's very own Instagram account, and we rounded up some of our favorites here. Check them out in the gallery, and make sure to follow Poh to see what he's up to back in New York!
