Author Milan Kundera once described dogs as “our link to paradise”, and that “to sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing was not boring–it was peace”.

The duo traveled across all lengths of the United States, stopping occasionally to immortalize the trip through film.
