Louie grew up among New Zealand's nature, surrounded by wildlife, birds and the unique flora found in those fertile soils. Ever since he was a little pup, Louie would run around the farmland, herding sheep, and venturing out and exploring on his own. Some days, he wouldn't come back until late at night, but he always made sure to be back around dinnertime. One day, Louie's owners hadn't heard from Louie for a while, so they started to get worried.

As Louie got older, his escapades around the farmland were few and far between. The pup was now thirteen years old, and he had slowly grown less adventurous due to his age. He still made sure to do a few runs across the farm, but he was more interested in lying on the grass, while he relaxed under the sun. But he took everyone by surprise one afternoon when he decided to venture out and leave, which raised some red flags.

Marolyn, who was Louie's human mom, was a bit taken aback. It's been years since she's seen him move that fast. “what’s gotten into him?” she said to herself. As soon as he crossed the farm's border, Louie vanished from everyone's sight. What could've caught Louie's attention to suddenly? The day went by, and Louie wasn't returning home. Marolyn's growing concern was started to escalate. Where was he?

It was a beautiful summer afternoon at Marolyn 's farmland. They were surrounded by nature, and wildlife, so it wasn't uncommon to see mice, foxes, and hares running around the land. Back when Louie was a vibrant and energetic puppy, he used to disappear for hours, chasing after critters, digging under the bramble. Now she was starting to wonder, had he had lost his way, chasing after something?

Louie was no longer the vigorous, lively puppy that used to go on adventures every day. It seemed a little far-fetched to believe the thirteen-year-old dog would suddenly feel like wandering off, when he hadn't done it in years. He loved nothing more than to lounge under the sun. All he needed was his porch and some food by his side. There was something off about Louie's disappearance for sure.
