Marine reunited with his war dog > In Iraq -- Marine reunited with his war dog: "They spent months in an Iraqi war zone cementing a special bond.

But after more than a month apart, Marine Maj. Brian Dennis began to worry if Nubs the dog would still remember him, especially in a new place like San Diego.

Their reunion before dawn yesterday at Camp Pendleton clearly showed otherwise.

The 2-year-old dog, named for his two nubby ears, drenched Dennis' face with doggie kisses and said hello with excited whimpers.

“You remember that, huh?” Dennis said as he rubbed the dog's haunches."

I remember hearing about this story a month ago - it brought tears to my eyes. I'm so happy that they were reunited! Read the story... it's so sad. The dog was stabbed with a screwdriver and Maj. Dennis brought him back to health.... among other injuries and such. Great story!

Major Dennis it looks to me that Congress was only able to make you an Officer as your parents had clearly already made you a Gentleman. My congratulations to them for a job well done!

You action just reaffirms that the sovereign dignity of the United States continues to be well represented by those men and women in dirty camouflage no matter how far from home they are, and no matter how hard and dirty the job handed to them is
