Dog Save the Queen is an unexpected comedic tale of fantastic fortune, family, a boy and his dog. Back in 72, when the queen visited the Cook Islands aboard Royal Britannia, one of her corgis got loose and busy with some of the local mutts. With the royal corgi bloodline facing certain extinction, the palace is desperately seeking a descendant from that 72 romp. Nuka’s world is turned upside down when his beloved dog Cyclone is announced the winner of the million dollar corgi quest. Torn between his dreams and family duty, Nuka must face the heart wrenching choice between cold hard cash and mans best friend.
