A lovely and uplifting story about the joy a dog can bring to even the most awful situation.

A wonderful story of how one little pup affected the lives of so many people, especially a lieutenant colonel in the US Marines, in war-torn Iraq. His antics(especially his roo-rooing) will make you laugh out loud as you follow his journey from Iraq to California.
