About the Book

“A likable author makes for a likable, dog-centric travel book.” – Kirkus Review

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.

'This was a fabulous read with so much to enjoy – a travel journal with real heart. But this story was about so much more than just the travel... this book was about family (the human and furry kind!) with reflections on love, life and loss, all deftly interwoven into the narrative.'
