Hello, I have decided to visit with you more often, for one thing I need to keep you in the social flow. But before I go there I want to pass on to you the most incredible animal story I have ever read. It is about a 20 minute read and I guarantee you will not be able to read it without crying. I tried it on four people, men and women and they all cried.
The book is “Nubs The True Story of a Mutt, a Marine & a Miracle by Major Brian Dennis, Kirby Larson and Mary Nethery. It is published by Little, Brown and Company and sells for $17.99. Beautifully illustrated the book tells of an incredible dog who lived in a pack in the midst of the Iraqi war, who was befriended by a Marine Major who gave him both medical and loving care. The two bonded until duty relocated the Marines 70 miles away. Injured, half starving this little dog made his way across 70 miles of desert to find the battalion and thus began an amazing series of events that finally brought him to the states. Please let me know if this one doesn’t bring you to tears.
