Her name is Mud

There are a handful of stray dogs (and a billion stray cats) in the Green Zone. Not many of them are approachable - raggedy scavengers that hang in packs looking for food of any kind. But, one puppy showed up a few weeks ago in the MNSTC-I compound. She had needy eyes and ran to anyone that accessed the open parking area, wanting attention. She had a thick layer of debris on her brown and black spotted coat. She is barely 6 months old, I would figure. Adorable still in her pitiful state.

She soon meandered to doorways to keep cool and to be closer to anyone carrying food. After a cook-out one night, she was given a large chewing bone, which she proceeded to attack and bury in one of the more maintained muddy areas. Her name is now Mud. She has been bathed and donned with a flea collar. She considers the MNSTC-I compound her home. And, we're glad. Many of us are grateful for her friendly, welcoming greeting every morning and every night.

It makes me miss my dog Spencer, but her presence does bring some normalcy and a feeling of home to this sand box.

Any PetCo donations are appreciated! :)

Tara,
First, I just want you to know that I love you so much. I have been thinking of you a lot today and I wanted you to know. Second, what kind of things would you like from Petco for little Mud. I will pick some up when I go to get Libby's dog food and I will mail it off with your birthday present. Let me know. I hope you are having a good day. Sending great big hugs to you! your little sister, Kaci xoxo

They forgive our transgressions, attempt the impossible and improbable to save our lives and sanity, and toil tirelessly by our sides when required.
