Eros is a poodle puppy, born in rural New Jersey. He is a prodigy when it comes to questions, although his prodigiousness ends when it comes to answers-for now. As just a puppy, there is much to learn before Eros can enter the wild, a fascinating and dangerous place for dogs and humans alike. He hones his skills for the sole purpose of survival. It takes time for young Eros to realize that life is about much more than survival; life is about finding happiness. However, to find happiness, it is imperative that Eros grows stronger, fights better, and finds time to play. There will be difficulties, of course, but the drive to survive inspires endurance in the young pup as he seeks purpose and love. When Eros believes happiness is out there waiting, it is! He discovers that finding happiness is not hard if he keeps his eyes open. In this playful allegory, there is much to learn from a poodle puppy, but the wisest thing Eros ever learned: "The purpose of life is to find happiness, and you can only discover happiness through the knowledge that you find."
