Marine, Brian Dennis, finds a dog in the desert of Iraq. While Brian's team is working at the fort, the dog, Nubs, becomes his constant companion, but when the team has to leave, Brian must leave Nubs behind. It is against the rules for a marine to have a pet. Brian visits the fort several times and Nubs is always there waiting for him. One day, Nubs decides he won't be left behind. He follows the team 70 miles through the cold winter desert just to be with his best friend. Brian matches Nubs' determination and starts the process of sending Nubs to America and a new life.

A dog is too loud, a snake is too scary, a horse is too big. A guinea pig? Free verse poems tell us how Theodore the Guinea Pig got his name and how his new owner learns to care for him. Getting to know someone new takes time and patience, but friendship and trust are worth the effort.
