I saw this book on the bestseller list, and the animal lover in me said...."read this book". So happy I did....sniff sniff sniff". Nubs, is a story about an Iraqi pack dog, barely surviving, whose life was changed when he met Marine Major Brian Dennis. Brian and the dog (he named Nubs) formed a special bond as Dennis shared his meals, gave him lots of attention and a offer a warm place to sleep. Things changed fore Nubs when Dennis had to transfer locations some 70 miles away, and could not take Nubs with him. Nubs was not about to give up on Dennis that easy. What happened next, is a touching story that will surely bring tears to your eyes....but don't let that discourage you....READ THIS BOOK. (Ages 4 - 8 and the kid in us all).
You can watch the Brian Dennis (and Nubs) interview with Meredith Vieira on the Today Show (here).
