Most people know Neil Armstrong as one of Jay-Z’s former tour DJs and creator of the Dinner & A Mixtape series.

His friends know him as Neil, pet parent of Poh the Dog.

Sixteen years ago, Armstrong adopted Poh from the North Shore Animal League, and watched as the pup ate everything in sight, from 200 Euros to a roll of toilet paper.

“Despite his strange dining choices, I love him dearly and wouldn’t change a thing,” Armstrong said.

Two years ago, after Poh’s health took a turn for the worst, Armstrong and his girlfriend, Yuko, decided that Poh was going to be right beside them as they traveled the country for their respective jobs.

“I’ve always wanted to let him dip his paws in the Pacific Ocean,” Armstrong said.

So far, the pup has been everywhere from Phoenix to Las Vegas, San Francisco to North Carolina, and Washington, D.C., a journey that’s been well documented on Instagram.

“I’m hoping that by following along on Poh’s journey, people see how great having a pet can be,” said Armstrong. “There are lots of shelter pups out there looking for a chance to find a family of their own.”
