Pugs of the Frozen North

A wintry race to the Arctic wilds with 66 cute/ugly pugs! The Race to the Top of the World only comes around once in a lifetime. The prize? Your heart’s desire. Shen and Sika can’t resist. But the path to victory is littered with snow trolls, sea monsters, and a gang of very hungry yetis. (As well as fierce rival teams.) Luckily, Shen and Sika have something the other contestants don’t have. PUGS! No less than 66 pugs. That gives them a 264 paw-powered sled! Will they win the race and take the prize? Well, if there’s a prize for cuteness, we reckon they’ve already won it.
