(Higher perspectives) Poh, a mix-breed dog and faithful companion from New York City was given a terminal illness. Instead of waiting for the end to come, his dad decided that they would take a trip and cross off as many places from their bucket list as they could.

“It was a great trip”, Thomas Neil Rodriguez, Poh’s dad, told ABC News. “I got to spend seven weeks with Poh. At first, I did not think he’d make it two weeks, but he did.” “I would say sometime in February he started to get sicker”, Rodriguez said. “I travel quite a bit but we came back from one trip and he was doing really bad. I’m unsure of how long [he will live]. Doctors are unsure. My assumption is that I don’t have very long with him and that’s what prompted the trips.”

Together, they visited 35 cities traveling 12,000 miles. “I initially wanted to get him to the Pacific ocean”, he added. “I have always wanted him to swim. He loved it, it was so healing for him. It was like he was five years younger. He was walking with a lot of energy.”

They made stops in North Carolina, Texas, Oregon, Arizona, and numerous other states. “We even stopped by Walter White’s house in New Mexico”, Rodriguez said. “I am super blessed that I have actually gotten to do this”, he added. “People think I take care of Poh, but Poh takes care of me.”
