>Nubs, an Iraqi dog of war, never had a home or a person of his own. But his
>life changes when he meets Marine Major Brian Dennis. The two form a fast
>friendship, made stronger by Brian's willingness to share his meals, offer a
>warm place to sleep, and give Nubs the kind of care and attention he's never
>received before. Nubs becomes part of Dennis's human "pack" until duty
>requires the Marines to relocate a full 70 miles away--without him.
>So Nubs sets out through the freezing desert to find his friend. Two days
>later, Nubs walks into the camp. But because Marine regulations prohibit the
>keeping of pets in a war zone, Brian and his men collect donations and
>arrange to send Nubs to live with friends in the United States, where they
>eventually reunite in 2008.
>"This is a wonderful story of the mutual devotion and the warm bond found
>between people and their pets... with a twist. My 7 year old son, as soon as
>we finished, said it best: 'Dad, that was a great story!'"
>-B. Franklin, Florida
