Always Bite Off More than You Can Chew

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.

Moxie is adamant in her belief that only a special few humans – mostly athletes and dancers – are as agile and nimble as even the most common house dog. She has evidence too, including when Greg slices his thumb wide open while trying to start a fire at the campsite on the first night of their trip to Las Nubes Waterfall in Chiapas, Mexico.


Earlier that same day of Greg’s shockingly clumsy display of knife skills, Jessie’s motorcycle suffers a dead battery, and she heckles Greg for being too weak to bump-start it. Eventually the mechanic arrives but the bike’s wiring doesn’t reach the off-brand battery’s terminals.


The next day, the pack hauls most of the camping gear back up to their motorcycles but Greg insists they return for the rest down an easier trail. They wind up at a different part of the river and Jessie and Moxie have to perform an amphibious rescue of the camping gear while wounded-thumb Greg waits at the shore.


That afternoon they arrive at Lagos de Montebello, Mexico and the next day they ride on to Las Nubes Waterfalls. But, along the way, Jessie asks Greg to ride her bike across a difficult bridge and he has a nasty crash.
