    New York Man Takes Dying Dog on Bucket List Adventure Across the Nation

    Following a terminal diagnosis, Poh, a mixed-breed dog from New York City, has been living his dying days traveling the nation with his owner, crossing off many desirable destinations from their bucket list.
    "It was a great trip," owner Thomas Neil Rodriguez 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."

    Rodriguez said he adopted Poh from an animal shelter back in December 1999, when he was eight weeks old.
    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

    While I'm sure that this dude's heart is in the right place, I cannot guess how he knows that this is good for his pet. Just thinking about palliative care for humans, the way he has treated his pet is very cruel.

    I'm sure the dog loved being with him wherever they were. Most dogs love to go for rides. I wish all people cared that much for their dogs. If so, I wouldn't have had to rehome 51 foster dogs with more coming every time I have an opening.

    This I would not dispute for an instant. But it's not just like the rest of the story was about a dog able to feel the breeze while her head was out the window. I would again submit that this tour had more to do with the fantasies of the owner rather than the pet.
