Chapter 1

My name is Rapherd. I don’t remember my litter mates. However, I do remember my humans, Ken, and Joan. They were kind, and I lived in luxury. My humans and I would take trips to various places in the world. This day was to be the start of another adventure. I will never forget this day, the day I lost my humans. We set sail on the family sailboat, heading into the open blue ocean. The atmosphere was filled with anticipation for this trip. Fate had other plans for me that day.

The voyage started great, and all was smooth sailing throughout the day. In the late afternoon, I began to feel tension in the air. The moods of my humans have changed to one of concern. A storm had appeared on the horizon, and they could not sail around it. Things on deck became frantic, and I hid under a deck bench. The skies turned black within minutes, and the sounds of the thunder were terrifying.

The storm was relentless, with the waves tossing the boat like a ragdoll. I have never felt fear like this before. The lightning lit up the sky and boat like broad daylight. It then plunged back into total darkness with the earsplitting roar of thunder. Terror gripped me. I saw large waves rise above the boat, and in the chaos, our boat capsized, plunging me into darkness.
