'What a wonderfully captivating read! Destination Dachshund is a humorous, yet moving memoir of a three generational family's journey through Europe and the USA. As the family deal with the grief of death, there are moments that tugged at the heartstrings as well as a whole load of hilarious anecdotes, a bit of history and of course, the dachshund spotting! This book is a well-paced read and the rich descriptions captured the sights, smells and flavours of Christmas time in the northern hemisphere. We learn of the trials and tribulations of travelling with extended family, yet there are lots of special moments that make this book so complete. Destination Dachshund will make you want to grab your family and hug them tight...if only to make sure they don't spot a dachshund!' --Melissa Bromley, Sydney 'Destination Dachshund is a truly delightful read with many laugh out loud moments. And it isn't just a book about travel - even though the extraordinary array of travel experiences captured between the pages is epic. The author unpacks with warmth and humour the intricacies of family relationships, our love of pets, and the joys of travelling with dodgy-kneed grandparents. And then there's the hilarious dachshund spotting competition. I now find myself scanning walkways and parks for these spunky little dogs.' --Vanessa Bond, Sydney 'As a traveler, animal lover, mom, journalist, and voracious reader DESTINATION DACHSHUND really captivated my interest. Lisa's accounts of her family's travels, experiences, interactions, and feelings were all relatable. Sometimes humorous, sometimes sad, we as readers were introduced to all the family dynamics and the places traveled with a very descriptive, relatable writing style. Recommend the book to all who travel or who just like to read of travels.' -- Terri from San Diego 'A truly engaging read that is so much more than a travel memoir. Not only does Lisa take us on her 3 month trip of a life time- she also takes us into the heart of her family. While the Fleetwood's travel through Europe, they must also navigate their own grief. Destination Dachshund is a remarkable book- filled with honesty and humour, and the sights, smells and sounds of amazing locations. It will make you want to hug the ones you love, then book a flight somewhere!'---Sharyn Longdon, Sydney


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 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 5 STARS - Readers' Favorite Review Reader Reviews 'What a wonderfully captivating read!
