Book 1 in the Survivors series introduces us to Lucky.  Lucky is a Lone Dog.  He has been caught and is in a kennel when a major earthquake hits.  The story is told from Lucky’s point of view and he uses his words to describe his environment.   Humans are longpaws and the earthquake is the Big Growl.  Only one other dog survived in the kennel.  Lucky is a Lone Dog but he takes Sweet into the city in search of food.  What they find is total destruction.  The buildings have collapsed and the longpaws have run away.  Sweet decides she needs to find other dogs but Lucky wants to go it alone.  When he is attacked by a group of foxes in a mall, a small group of dogs comes to his rescue.  What will Lucky do now?
