Dog, owner set record for world’s longest walk; pair travels across 38 countries

A dog named Savannah just became the first dog to walk around the globe. The four-legged adventurer was adopted by Tom Turcich from New Jersey. Turcich said he was inspired to walk around the glob after the passing of a long-time friend. Turcich started the journey in 2015 and adopted Savanah a few months later. Together, the pair walked across six continents and 38 countries. Turcich said they walked between 18 and 24 miles each day and spent most nights camping. The trip took a total of seven years with a few delays from illness and the COVID-19 pandemic. Turcich is the 10th person on record to walk around the world. He said he plans to write a memoir about the adventure. Savannah still walks at least four miles a day, Turcich said. Now she’s adjusting to staying in one place.
