According to AOL News, when Thomas Neil Rodrigues found out his beloved pup only had a few more weeks left to live, he decided to give his dog, Poh, a trip of a lifetime.

In 7 weeks the pair took an epic road trip, visiting 35 cities along the way. Rodriguez told ABC News that “It was a great trip. I got to spend seven weeks with Poh. At first, I did not think he’d make it two weeks, but he did.”

Poh, who is 15, was adopted by his owner when he was just 8 weeks old. After doctors told Rodriguez that his friend of over a decade might now have much more time, he quickly took off on their last journey.

“It was a little bit for him, a little bit for me.”

Prior to their trip, Rodriguez documented the journey on an Instagram account created specifically for Poh’s adventures.

Since then, he said the positive comments on the page have been rolling in from pet owners everywhere.

“My life is kind of hectic,” Rodriguez said. “I’m always traveling, but Poh is my home, my child. I think this resonated with a lot of dog owners. They wish they could do stuff like this with their dog and spend these moments, but sometimes life gets in the way.”

“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.”
