(WJAR) When Paul Heroux learned his beloved dog, Mura, had just months to live, he knew he had to make the time count.

"With chemotherapy, I have about a 50 percent chance of six months, I have a 10 percent chance of one year," Heroux says.

On October 28, the two embarked on a cross-country road trip, visiting 24 states, historic landmarks and taking plenty of photos and videos along the way.

"Several people that have gone through the same situation, losing their dog to cancer, said, 'Just make sure that you give her the best few months of her life left,'" Heroux said. "And I took that to heart."
