There was clearly a story behind such an extraordinary sight — but for a long time, Michael Fiala, the motorcyclist and dog dad of Sox, was more interested in living his story rather than posting about it.
"I purposely avoided social media for a long time for fear that people would think I’m doing it for social media," Fiala told The Dodo.
Fiala's relationship with Sox started eight years ago when Fiala's dad decided to surprise him.
"I showed up at my dad's house, heard a little noise in the back room, and I thought, 'What in the world is that?'" Fiala went into the room and there was Sox. "I fell in love."
