Poh the dog, 15, was diagnosed with a terminal illness a few months ago which prompted his owner, Neil Rodriquez to give his best friend the trip of a life time before it was his time to go.
Rodriquez has been sharing their amazing adventure with the Hashtag #PohTheDogsBigAdventure on Instagram.
Poh has quickly become a very well traveled pooch, with Rodriquez saying “We are going to go South to North Carolina, Texas, Arizona… All the way up the west coast to Seattle and back. This will be just like pee wee Herman’s trip without the bicycle”.
Although Poh may not have a lot of time left, he is using every spare moment of it to live it up on sunny beaches, faraway cities, and even famous theme parks. We love his photos.. check them out below!

I’m a bit sad in this picture. This is where the far rockaway boardwalk used to be. It was destroyed in hurricane sandy :(. They are working diligently to repair it and hope to be done next Memorial day. I hope I am strong enough, I really want to be able to walk on it again when it is finished! I hope they allow doggies on the new boardwalk 🙂 #pohthedogsbigadventure thanks @djneilarmstrong for bringing me here. Let’s come back when it’s done ok? 🙂
My most favorite thing to do is to dip my paws In the ocean. The West coast is too far though 🙁 With all my new followers, can you guys suggest a really nice dog beach here on the east coast? Within 3 hours of #nyc area? We already know about Asbury Park down the Jersey Shore, and I think we will be heading there today around 1 pm until about 2:30.

GOOD MORNING everyone from #nyc. I am still here ready for another day:) I wanted to let everyone know something. As my story has started to spread far and wide, there has been much concern about me and my health. There have been comments on here and on Facebook saying that I am suffering, that my parents are ‘selfish’ for dragging me around, that they don’t know what I want and that I should be home eating hamburgers and sleeping. Yes, that is an actual quote. Some people have even gone to my parents personal pages to chastize and shame them. Well, this was me YESTERDAY , right after a good swim, some beach yoga, getting to meet some new people and puppies and a nice long Beach nap. This is me smiling, sitting uprite, happy with my pup parents. Please understand, there are 24 hours in a day. Most of the day is spent with me eating, taking meds and plenty of SLEEPING. For a few hours my parents drop what they are doing, EVEN if they are working, and bring me somewhere beautiful to enjoy, whether it be a beach, or a walk in a new place in NYC. Many people have been saying ‘you need to put your dog down!’ making snap judgements, not even bothering to read my story. I STILL HAVE MY APPETITE, I STILL HAVE CONTROL OF MY BOWELS. I MOVE Very slow, but that is called OLD AGE. That does not mean suffering. If I was suffering I wouldn’t move at all, and that’s why my parents bought me a cart for when I’m tired and I do need to nap. MOST OF ALL, I STILL HAVE SPIRIT, I still have some time left to spend with my parents! That is what should be focused on. The LIVING, NOT THE DYING. I am hoping that this is what the world is reminded of when they are seeing #pohthedogsbigadventure . Put down your smart phones (after u like my picture of course 🐶) , go outside and enjoy your life. See something new. Put yourself out of your comfort zone, and be kind to each other and LOVE your pets!! I know that’s what my mom and dad are going to keep doing… And I’m going to keep smiling.
