Format: Hardcover
It was a good read and I liked many things about it, particularly pleasing to me was that the dog was well treated and loved as only a true dog lover can when faced with a neurotic, "untrainable dog". Only a true dog lover would have kept this animal because we all know that given half the obstacles the author faced, most would have brought this animal to the pound. Most dogs aren't perfect and this book breaks the myths around that, but they can still be loved and a wonderful part of your family regardless.

What a great book. Astute observations of mans best friend...it will make you smile...it will make you laugh out loud.

Similar to 'Shakespeare my b**t!' by the British author John Donoghue, this too explores the relationship of a wayward Labrador to his adopted human pack.

If you know anyone who is thinking of getting a dog...get them to read either of these books first. They will either rush out and buy one or never entertain the thought of a dog again!

If you already have a dog, you'll recognise the antics of these dogs only too well!

A 'must have' for any dog lover.

I loved this book. I was a little hesitant at first because I have an older dog and I thought it might make me too emotional. It is actually pretty funny and touching.

This couple are both saints for putting up with the psychotic behaviour of this dog and not giving up on Marley.

Highly recommended.

Format: Paperback
John Grogan tells the story of life with his dog Marley. Marley is an irascible lab that while lacking manners or a calm demeanor manages to steal the hearts of John and his wife. This is story that will touch your heart to its very core. All of the trouble and destruction that Marley manages to create makes you wonder how the Grogans managed to cope, but in the end it is the perfect love story, perfect, unconditional love. If you have ever loved a dog this tale will melt you. If you have ever lost a beloved dog, be prepared to feel the loss all over again. John Grogan writes with his heart and soul and the emotion will sweep you up and captivate you with it's purity. It is laugh out loud funny as Marley wages "innocent" havoc in his home and neighborhood and in the end.....with your heart. Would also recommend the novels "Cell" by Stephen King, "Katzenjammer" by Jackson McCrae, and "Time Traveler's Wife" for other excellent reads. --.

Oh my. If you are not a dog owner and are thinking about becoming one, read this book. Marley is a nightmare with a smile. He is the dog you see your neighbor being pull by on there evening walks. I don't remember laughing so hard I had to stop reading. My only request in my book reading life would be to find a book were the end is not the end of the dog. Love the book, love the dog. Very well put together. You will laugh yourself to the breeder to get your own Marley...good luck with that.

This was one of the few books that made me cry. People who don't have dogs wonder how those of who do, can put up with their antics. This book shows all manner of antics, but it also shows how important one dog can become. You share in the joys, the sorrows, and the disagreements Marley brings. If you finish the book though, you can see how a dog can win your heart, and how you can put up with the antics.

Format: Hardcover
Every dog owner has had bad moments. Perhaps your beloved pet snapped at a baby. Or ripped up the wallpaper in the living. Or teethed on an expensive shoe. Or ran in front of a car and was injured.

Well, nothing you experienced will probably approach the virtually non-step disasters that the loopy Marley brought to Grogan family. Unless you've also known a mentally imbalanced Labrador, Marley will make you count your blessings about your luck as a dog owner and lover.

Mr. Grogan and his wife had each had good experiences with childhood dogs. They were unsuspecting when they went to buy the cute purebred Labrador puppy that Mr. Grogan dreamed of showing. There was one little hint: The sire raced by them on the first visit in a particularly bizarre way. Well, the son was a true heir to that behavior.

I won't go into all of Marley's problems . . . but he had almost all of the bad habits a dog can have except for eating his own stool. To compensate for that one point of relief, Marley developed a taste for chicken droppings late in life.

It wasn't unusual to have to rebuild rooms, replace screens in doors, buy new furniture and drag valuable items out of his throat.

Even on tranquilizers a thunderstorm was a terrible trauma for poor Marley.

The remarkable thing is that the Grogans' love for Marley surmounted the inconveniences of living with Marley. As you read about their remarkable patience, you'll be reminded on many moments when your patience was also tried . . . and you'll relive the happy times in your life with dogs.

The book covers Marley's entire life . . . and the changes that occurred in the Grogans' lives because of Marley.

Mr.

I am a cat lover. However, I truly loved this book. If you have ever had a pet, you will understand the relationship between Marley and John. When I started reading this book, I had just had my first pet (my beloved cat, Sydney) put down after a brief but debilitating illness. I was feeling sad to say the least.

This book made me laugh and it made me cry. What a wonderful tribute to put into words all that your pet has meant to you without glossing over the unavoidable bad times. This is a charming and enjoyable story of a dog and his human family.
