Nubs: The True Story of a Mutt, a Marine and a Miracle by Major Brian Dennis

NubsThe very title of this book immediately sparked my interest and I am certainly glad that it did! This book tells the heartwarming bond between a dog and a man. Be ready to feel moved – whether you are a dog lover or not.

While stationed in Iraq, Marine soldier Major Brian Dennis probably never expected to form a bond with a dog. In camp there was a pack of wild dogs hanging around, with a mutt of a dog as the leader. His ears had been cut off to show that he was a dog of war. Of course, he had never had an owner or knew what it was like to be loved. That was all about to change when he met Major Brian, who named him Nubs because his ears looked like little nubs. Brian also gave him food and wonderful belly rubs and taught him some commands. A bond between the Marine and Nubs was formed. When Major Brian and the Marines were relocated, Nubs did something unbelievable. He journeyed 70 miles across the frozen desert until he found where Brian was. The exhausted dog was in poor health, but Brian, along with the other Marines, gave him food and tender loving care. The bond grew stronger. Unfortunately, working Marines are not allowed to have dogs and Brian was told to get rid of Nubs, or else. By now, the bond was so strong between Major Brian and Nubs, that what happened next is truly heartwarming.

I hope you are inspired to read this book to find out what happens to Nubs and to enjoy the many photographs of both Major Brian Dennis and the special dog he met while serving our country in Iraq.
