    Summary: 
    A fallen soldier, a grieving sister, two strays, and one question: how to extract the dogs from a war zone and bring them safely to a new home in the United States? In Iraq, Neesley's brother Peter was committed to saving a stray dog and its pup. After his death, she needed an unlikely network of heroes in order to bring Mama and Boris from Baghdad to Michigan-- and into the hearts of everyone they touched along the way.
