(Update 9/25/09: You can read tmy recent interview with Maj. Dennis about Nubs here!)
Nubs landed in San Diego on Friday ready to start a new life. He sure seems to be an unflappable dog, happily wagging his tail even with all the people and cameras.
Nubs is the dog who walked 70 miles to reunite with the marine who had befriended him. You can read more about Nubs and Maj. Brian Dennis from my email with him.
Maj. Dennis did a great job looking after Nubs in Iraq and this lucky dog is already receiving excellent care here in the US. During his stop-over in Chicago, Nubs was seen by an American-Egyptian veterinarian so that the Jordanian vet’s report could be translated accurately. He’s clearly being very well taken care of.
Nubs will be joining Maj. Brian Dennis’ other dog Bogey (Dennis spelled it “Bogey” in the email we exchanged) whom he adopted from a shelter in 2000. We hope Maj. Dennis is able to come home soon too.
I’ve checked with Major Dennis and he said it was okay to post his email address. You can write him at:
He also said Nubs is doing great in San Diego. Yea!
