Fascinating story of a Marine who befriended a dog in war-torn Iraq. The dog's ears had been trimmed, hence the name Nubs. When the Marines left that post for another one, the dog followed them for 70 miles to be with Brian. Unfortunately there are rules against Marines keeping pets. So, Brian figured out a way to get Nubs sent to CA to friends of his, to keep him until his duty was over.

Very sweet story; it's too bad there aren't happy endings for all the poor dogs over there living such a rough life scavenging for food, fighting, etc.
