Pedigree pooch Cumberland lived with Granny Frannie who spoilt him to death and spent every last penny on him.

When Granny Frannie died, her house, beloved dog and vast debt was left to her estranged grandson: Colin.

Colin seizes on his inheritance, but his legacy is not what he'd hoped:

The house is crumbling, the dog is hostile and the bills ...! To make things worse, most of them are doggy-related.

Colin needs a job fast. Hearing of a vacancy at the local radio station he appies, dragging Cumberland with him.

pic 6
The interview's a success and Colin is left to his first broadcast. There's a catch: the slot's in Irish and Colin doesn't speak the language.

There's one thing to do: sell the house and send Cumberland to the dogs' home... leaving, he's stopped in his tracks ...

pic 8
A mellifluous voice greets the listeners in Irish. Colin turns to see - Cumberland can speak Irish!

They can survive: but they need each other. Cumberland is Colin's interpreter and radio voice, while Colin is Cumberland's meal ticket. But life is never going to be a smooth ride!
