As Christians, we don't always feel God's presence even though He is ALWAYS with us.  When hard times come, it's easy to feel abandoned by God.  Much like the dog in the video, usually that abandoned feeling accompanies some sort of pain in life, like a job layoff, a major illness, a loss of a loved one, etc.  Yet, the Bible is clear, we are never alone.  Joshua 1:9 says, "Be strong and courageous.  Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go."  Yet, we feel as though we're alone and the world is out to harm us.  Just like the dog in the video, we feel injured and abandoned.  Like the men in the video trying to capture the dog, we don't recognize that God desires to help us.  All we see is the world coming down on us and we're too busy trying to flee the mess we're in that we don't recognize that God desires to help us.  Just as the dog has to get a dart in the side, be chased and get medical treatment, God pursues us to rescue us.  In the end of the video, we see the happy results for the dog.  We see the dog getting love and attention, a forever home, something far from the place he was at before, wandering alone in pain.  We, too, have to experience hardship before we can be "captured" by the blessings God has for us.  If the dog had submitted to his "captors" in the beginning, he would have saved himself the extra days of wandering lonely and abandoned.  He would have made it into the loving arms of his new owners quicker.  We, too, can save ourselves grief if we'd just surrender ourselves to God during those times we feel abandoned.  It's important that we remember that God uses ALL things for His glory.  God is waiting with arms wide open, waiting for us to fall into His loving arms.  The time we spend in hardship will build our character and bring us closer to God.  Surrender to Him daily and save yourself the grief of wandering alone and relying on yourself.
