Just Because Something Is Different Doesn't Mean It's Bad

It's Motorcycle Diaries + A Dog's Purpose. German Shepherd Moxie narrates her adventure travels and the lessons she learns along the way.

A couple days into a Guatemala-Honduras-Belize trip, Moxie’s prejudice against four-hooved creatures is on full display when a stubborn donkey just won’t clear out from the pack’s campsite at Lago de Yojoa. But, after she gnashes and barks and wears herself out, she discovers that paws and hooves actually have a lot in common.


After a stop at the BMW dealer in Guatemala City for repairs, an unplanned stop because of a mechanical problem, the pack cross into Honduras at the El Florido border.


Moxie’s anti-four-hoofer prejudice first appears at a campsite outside Copan Ruinas where Moxie agitates against a dispassionate, local horse who’s minding his own business in a field. That evening the pack arrives at Lago de Yojoa where they discover that their preferred campsite is beset by horses and a donkey.


After hours of barking, growling, and extreme alertness, Moxie finally turns over a new leaf and accepts the donkey as part of the pack, thus ending forever her baseless animosity towards four-hooved creatures.
