When U.S. Marine Rob Kugler returned from war, he had not only given up years of his life in service to his country, but he had also lost a brother in the fighting. Lost in grief, Kugler found solace and relief in the one thing that never failed to put a smile on his face: his chocolate lab, Bella. But then Bella started to get sick. It was cancer, and the prognosis wasn’t good. Instead of waiting at home for the cancer to spread, Kugler and Bella packed their bags and hit the road. A Dog Named Beautiful (Flatiron) is the uplifting story of a Marine, his extraordinary dog, and the road trip of a lifetime.
