He Took His Dying Dog On A Bucket List Trip Across The USA. The Photos Broke My Heart.

Neil Rodriquez and his best friend Po made the most epic cross country journey together. Poh is suffering from tumors that are inoperable; his vet gave him, at most, weeks to live. Rodriguez had a DJ gig in Arizona so he decided to take his pup and fiancee on a bucket-list adventure.

The trio, who are from New York, wound up making it into a tour of over 35 cities in 46 days, all while sharing their experiences on Instagram. Poh got to visit the strip in Las Vegas, Elvis Presley's Graceland in Memphis, Tennessee, the steep canyons in Arizona, and the beach in Austin, Texas. Despite his vast excursions, Rodriguez admits that Poh was happiest when frolicking on the beach.

Now back in New York, Poh has lived past his prognosis. Although he is suffering from kidney failure and is on daily IV treatment, Rodriguez is planning another trip in the fall to celebrate his and Poh’s birthday.
