Every lost pup has it's own story and no two stories or endings are the same. Lost pups know about the unwritten foundation that is common among all the lost pups. Can everybody understand that foundation? Not likely, even for us lost pups, it's not truly understood. How can something so simple be known but not understood?
Where do lost puppies begin to search and what do they search for? Torn between finding themselves and surviving. Normal pups when searching, search in the brightest of light in the plushest of lawns, gaining confidence and identity. Lost pups must search in the darkness of night, afraid to take even the smallest scraps, easily jumping at the chance to call something their own only to loose it at the crack of dawn. Each day they are torn between the search for identity or their past. Can the journey start for one without the knowledge of the other? Which must come first in order to start the other? Downtime is the lost pups Achilles heal. Watching the outside world move about their day with happiness, fulfillment and purpose creates a sense of retreat back into the safety net of darkness. As normal pups grow to play in the clear meadows with bright blue skies and gentle breezes. Lost pups remain underground, blending in with their environment.
Even if the lost pup is rescued, it will never trust completely. It is always reminded of the scars it received while underground and asks, why was I chosen. Grateful to be rescued only to learn they will not be staying in the house. Grateful to be rescued only to be easily trampled upon and used. Why do the pups want to be rescued? Because it's our nature to want a better life. But is it really?
