Well, that is no easy feat--it entails a year long process, including 6 months in quarantine. But instead of the dangerous streets of Afghanistan, Smudge now gets to live in the Dorset countryside. What a lucky girl! I bet Corporal Phillips feels pretty lucky too--he survived a war zone, and came home with a new best friend.

Surviving Afghanistan & finding a new best friend
Corporal Ashley Phillips of the UK's Royal Army Medical Corp spent three tours in Afghanistan. Something really special happened on his last deployment: He met Smudge. Smudge was just a stray puppy, the smallest in the litter, and had a tongue that just didn't seem to fit in her mouth. Phillips just fell in love with her, and decided she was going to come home with him.
