Nubs The Dog Travels 70 Miles To Reunite With Soldier In Iraq

This has to be one of the best stories I've heard out of Iraq in quite some time. A Marine named Major Dennis rescued a dog in Iraq who had been severely mistreated (his ears had been cut off and he had been stabbed with a screw driver by his Iraqi owners). Major Dennis nursed him back to health as best he could, but his troop was ordered to leave the area where they were, and they couldn't take Nubs with them. (He named him Nubs because of his ears.)

They traveled 70 miles away through the desert, and miraculously, Nubs found them. By the time Nubs found them, he was in bad shape again having traveled 70 miles in very treacherous terrain.

This time, Major Dennis knew he had to get Nubs out of Iraq. He started an email campaign and raised over $3,000 to get Nubs out of Iraq and to San Diego to stay with some friends until he can be reunited with him when he returns from Iraq himself. Nubs is supposed to be landing here in the U.S. any day now. I'll keep you updated as soon as I know he's here.

Here's the remarkable story.

Make it a great day!

    Major Dennis, YOU'RE THE MAN of the YEAR! As a widow of two officers in the military; and an owner of several dogs, I applaud you. I understand the stress you're under; and appreciate all that you do in Iraq and elsewhere. I thank God today for putting such a wonderful, compassionate, professional Marine in our services. You bring great honor just by being you. God be with you always. Grammie
