Eureka author Mary Nethery's latest children's book arrived today! Nubs: The True Story of a Mutt, a Marine, and a Miracle describes the adventures of an abandoned German shepherd in Iraq who adopted a major and followed his Humvee for 70 miles through the desert. When the marines said he couldn't keep the dog, volunteers raised funds to have his sent to live with Major Brian Dennis in San Diego. This moving story is illustrated with photographs taken of Nubs and Brian in Iraq and their reunion in the States.
