Bodie, a part pit bull, chow chow, and German shepherd mix, is on death row in a Los Angeles dog shelter, having been abandoned by his owner. Belinda, a heartbroken woman, is in a heap on the floor of her vintage apartment, having been dumped by the man of her dreams. Two lost souls ready to find a new life—together.
Belinda falls in love with Bodie the moment he sits down beside her and plants his furry butt on her flip-flopped foot. Soon, the two embark on a 2,000-mile West Coast road trip, taking in spectacular Big Sur, a pack run in the wilds of Oregon, afternoon tea at Doris Day’s dog-loving hotel in Carmel, a fragrant encounter with the creator of Kennel No.5 furfume, and a bar stop in a small town near San Francisco where a dog was elected mayor, two years running . . .
On the road to find happiness, and themselves, Belinda and Bodie travel the golden state on a soul-searching adventure along California State Route 1, one of the most iconic highways in America. Bodie on the Road will make you feel the wind in your hair and a wag in your tail, too.
