The dog did not understand when his people left him behind in the cold and the rain. He did not understand when the sound of gunshots echoed through the air. And he did not understand when the things came into his yard. Things that moved and moaned, and smelled very very dead.
With all he has ever known in tatters the dog is forced to forge ahead into an uncertain world where the dead-things roam.
