Nubs- The True Story of a Mutt, a Marine & a Miracle - Authors

Welcome back to the Author's Arena. On Monday, I introduced you to the story about the Iraqi war-dog named, Nubs. On Wednesday, we had some Activity Adventures. Today, I will introduce you to the fine Noble-people who put this book together. Enjoy! 

BRIAN DENNIS is a major in the Marines who now lives in San Diego, California with Nubs. He found Nubs while on duty in Iraq, and after the two became friends, Major Dennis worked it out so Nubs could come live with him in California. Learn more about them in the picture book: Nubs: The True Story of a Mutt, a Marine & a Miracle.

Here is part of an interview with Nubs and Major Dennis on the Today Show.
