From Baghdad, With Love

Postby Andria » Tue Dec 26, 2006 12:03 pm

I got this book for Christmas and just finished. Really sweet story about a Col Lt in Iraq who finds a mangey flea ridden pup, adopts him despite military rules which states that's not allowed, and sets about trying to smuggle him back home to the States. It's half war-memoir (without being either pro or anti war - it's more just, how it is, in Iraq and not really political at all) and half dog-man love story, and talks about all the coordination and people who helped along the way and who were taken in by this sweet little pup who they name Lava.

A great read, with a happy ending, so any tears are relatively happy ones.

Highly recommended!
