A man named Joseph is cycling through Australia with his 15-year-old dog, Zeus. The best friends are touring the country together as a final adventure for the elderly dog, now deaf and turning blind.
"I don't want Zeus to just die, he has cared for me more than I have cared for him," Joseph told Ellie, who posted photos
of their encounter on imgur.
Zeus sits in a small blanket-filled cart attached to the back of Joseph's bike. See a video of the traveling pair here
People "just love Zeus," Joseph said of the new friends they've met on their journey.
Imgur users were moved by Joseph and Zeus' story:
"My dog is very sick and will most likely be euthanized today. I wish I could have done something like this for her!" wrote SilentAndDeadly.
"That is quite possibly the sweetest thing I have ever seen. There is nothing like the love between a person and their dog," wrote xroxy182x.
Joseph posts photos of their trip and his abstract pen art, which he freely gives away to friendly faces along the way, on flickr.
