Destination Dachshund: A Travel Memoir: Three Months, Three Generations & Sixty Dachshunds

Bookends Publishing

Narrated by Stephanie Macfie

6 hr 58 min

With teenage children and in-laws in tow, the Fleetwood family embark on their 3 month family vacation 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, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Hungary, Czech Republic, Germany, France, the UK, 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.

Winner: Gold Medal for ‘Non-Fiction – Travel’ in the Readers’ Favorite International Book Award Contest.

Editorial Reviews

"A likable author makes for a likable, dog-centric travel book." - Kirkus Review

"Fleetwood’s resulting chronicle of a multigenerational family trip—86 days, 15 countries, and 60 dachshund spottings—has an invitingly chatty tone that makes one feel like one is traveling with her." - Kirkus Review
