Withnell Motor Company Youth Project Lost Dog by Deb Vaughn : A Play for Young Audiences Dog, Catilda and Birdy have a backyard friendship, despite the expected inter-species challenges. As one might expect cat endlessly stalks bird, dog barks frustratedly at being unable to climb trees and bird frets over the welfare of friends during the annual migration South. Birdy and Catilda rely on their instinctual memories to guide them, but Dog dismisses the past, choosing to live only in the present moment. When forgetful Dog escapes the backyard, the others fear their friend won't return. With the help of a new canine friend named Rusty, Dog learns that honoring past experiences is the only way home. Back in the familiar yard with loving friends, Dog begins to understand what unconditional acceptance means.
