Marley and Me by John Grogan
Book DescriptionMarley & Me is the heart-warming and unforgettable story of a family in the making and the wondrously neurotic dog who taught them what really matters in life. John and Jenny were young and deeply in love, with a perfect little house and not a care in the world. Then they brought home Marley, a wiggly yellow furball of a puppy. Life would never be the same. Marley quickly grew into an uncontrollable 44-kilogram steamroller of a Labrador retriever. Expelled from obedience school, even the tranquillisers prescribed by the vet couldn't stop him. Yet through the chaos and the hilarity he won hearts and remained a steadfast model of devotion to his family, even when they were at their wits' end. Unconditional love, they would learn, comes in many forms. If you love Marley & Me, don't miss The Longest Trip Home, John Grogan's warm and moving memoir about the power of family and love. PRAISE for Marley & Me: 'Mr. Grogan knew the workings of Marley's mind. He makes that abundantly clear in Marley and Me, a very funny valentine to all those four-legged "big, dopey, playful galumphs that seemed to love life with a passion not often seen in this world." It's a book with intense but narrow appeal, strictly limited to anyone who has ever had, known or wanted a dog.' The New York Times 'A must for anyone who's ever had a canine pal - and even for those cat lovers who might be persuaded by the merits of man's best friend.' Sunday Herald Sun 'a sweet, funny tale' The Age 'Labrador retrievers are generally considered even-tempered, calm and reliable - and then there's Marley, the subject of this delightful tribute to one Lab who doesn't fit the mold...Grogan's chronicle of the...overly energetic but endearing dog is delivered with great humor. Dog lovers will love this account of Grogan's much loved canine.' Publisher's Weekly 'Grogan ...offers a humorous and loving tribute to Marley (after Bob Marley), his late 100-pound yellow Labrador ...Readers will delight in this tribute; recommended.'
