Dukes the pup is brought to a rural island from the city. He is used to the glamor of city life and isn’t sure what to make of life in the country.

Over time, though, he begins to explore the fields and streams and finds that he loves it more than he could have imagined. When it is time to go home to the city, it is clear that Dukes is better off in his new home.
