You Are What You Do, Not What You Bark

Ruff on the Road


on 2 Wheels + 4 Paws

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

Dogs seem to have a natural understanding that they are as they do not as what they bark. Take for example, those little yappers who drum up such a huge ruckus when you walk by but then scamper off with their tails between their legs when you approach them. However, as the pack tackles their second leg of a Guatemala-Honduras-Belize trip, Moxie learns that questions of identity are more complicated for people than they are for dogs.


The pack crosses rivers and enjoys a dirt road through beautiful countryside on the way to Pico Pijol National Park. Eventually the road begins to climb the mountain and it becomes steep and rocky, which makes for some challenging riding for Mama Bear with a fidgeting Moxie on board.


Fortunately, just as the off-road and hours of exertion becomes challenging, the pack reaches the national park where they set up camp and visit the beautiful Cascada las Piratas (Pirates Waterfall).
