Destination Dachshund : A Travel Memoir: Three Months, Three Generations & Sixty Dachshunds
With teenage children and in-laws in tow, the Fleetwood family embark on their 3 month adventure just days after the tragic loss of their beloved dachshund, Coco.
When two miniature dachshunds in smart winter coats are spotted in Moscow, it's game on! A riotous, often hilarious dachshund spotting competition for the lovable, long-bodied dog ensues across 15 countries.
Filled with love, laughter, and sadness at times, Destination Dachshund offers a unique twist on the travel memoir with remembrance for those who have been loved and lost, at the heart of one family's extraordinary adventure through Turkey, Russia, the Baltics, Europe and the United States.
Through the wonder of travel, this remarkable travelogue explores the bond of extended family, the abiding love we have for our pets and the grieving for loved ones, both human and hound.

"With three generations travelling the globe this book was about family (the human & furry kind) with reflections on love, life, and loss all deftly woven into the narrative.' - Helen Petrovic, book blogger and reviewer
