We are Kait and John Seyal, and our dogs are Max, Grace, and Jenny. On March 1, 2012 we began our coast-to-coast walk in Lewes, Delaware. We walked 3,088 miles to raise awareness for pet therapy and animal rescue. On November 17, 2012, we walked into the Pacific Ocean, completing our journey in Long Beach, California.

Max and Grace were both adopted as adults from shelters, and we trained them ourselves to be certified Therapy Dogs. As we walked across our country, we stopped to volunteer at hospitals, nursing homes, children’s homes, veteran’s facilities, and anywhere else the unconditional love of a dog is needed.

Max and Grace are certified and insured therapy dogs through Pawsibilities Unleashed based in Frankfort, Kentucky.

The first few posts were pretty rough, but we promise they get better.

  1. I happened to see you folks walking near Shenandoah the a couple mornings ago and wondered what you were up to. Traffic was too heavy to pull over for a chat, so I just kept on wondering… Your story was featured this morning on our local radio stations website (KMA.)

    What a wonderful thing you are doing! Thank you so much for raising awareness for adoption and for therapy dogs. Too many people do not understand how important therapy dogs are in our society.

    Have a safe journey!

    Sending you huge love, encouragement, and hopefully a warm meal from time to time. I so wish that I were on the route to provide you a place to stay! I’m actually hoping to see you on the west coast at the end of the trek. I’m following your stories, and am so very very proud to watch you grow and change lives through your love. Be well. Stay strong.
