Watch PBS Online Film Festival Entry Dog Save the Queen

Dog Save the Queen is the title of an adorable entry in the 2014 PBS Online Film Festival.

In the short, residents of the idyllic Island of Rarotonga, Cook Islands are excited over the news of “the Million Dollar Corgi Quest.” The contest, run by Buckingham Palace, aims to find the descendant of the Queen’s corgi who visited the island back in ‘74, got loose and procreated with some local mutts.

The contest could have an impact on a boy, his dog and his family, being pressured to sell their land to hotel developers at a pittance.

Watch the film below - it will definitely take you to beautiful lands faraway. If you are inclined to, vote for it here. You can check out and vote for more entries in the festival until July 31.
