James got Elmo’s diagnosis two weeks ago.

When James Garcia found out his dog Elmo only had a few months left to live, he made sure that they were the best months of Elmo’s life.

The vet diagnosed him with liver cancer, bladder disease, and renal failure.

“The vet has given him a couple of months,” said James. “So I decided not to sit and cry but to make the moments together matter and decided to take him to every one of my favorite NYC spots.”

“I never wanted him to feel lonely in the apartment and he loves the outdoors so much,” said James. “He goes with me to restaurants, grocery shopping and naps in the park.”

It’s the only real path.

James says he wants to eventually turn his experiences with Elmo into a book to teach people about saying goodbye to a pet.
