The Sidecar Dog Spirit A Success Story

I just found a video I wanted to share about the sidecar dog named Spirit a success story that appeared quite by accident. I’m of the belief that when things just appear they have done so for a reason.

That is why I want to share this video of Spirit with you. It goes along with another post I put up about the healing role of therapy dogs. No, Spirit is not a therapy dog but that’s what happened when Spirit was adopted as a rescue dog.

When his adult son died of cancer a few years ago, Ara was heartbroken, empty, and lost. And then he adopted a dog named Spirit. Spirit had had a rough go of it himself and had his own emptiness and emotional damage to overcome. Ara and Spirit have been inseparable since. They’ve traversed 140,000 miles by motorcycle together. As they zip along, Spirit sniffs the terrain in his sidecar, looking ever so happy to be with his man for this grand and healing adventure.

“Spirit is my therapy…His unconditional love is always there, lifting my heart,” says Ara.

There is a movie in this. For now, here’s a pretty awesome little music video.


If you would like a little more video Spirit here’s Spirit and Ara going to the mailbox.


I hope all is well with Ara and Spirit and that they are continuing the sidecar dog Spirit a success story. I hope the video moved you as much as it did me. All the very best to you both.
