Nubs: the True Story of a Mutt, a Marine (Hardcover) by Brian Dennis
about this item
The last thing Marine Major Brian Dennis expected to find while serving in Iraq was a furry new best friend, but find one he did in the form of Nubs, an abandoned dog living on the streets near where Brian was stationed. The friendship started slowly, but over time Nubs grew very loyal to Brian and so, when duty called Brian to serve in another party of the country, both man and dog were heartbroken. Not willing to wait for a reunion, Nubs took it upon himself to travel over 70 miles (some of it across a freezing desert) to be reunited, once and for all, with Brian. Maps and photographs accompany the text of this true story.
Tells the true story of a mutt named Nubs, who was befriended by a marine on duty at the Iraqi border and became so devoted to the marine that he followed him on foot to his next post more than seventy miles away.
