- Brief Synopsis:
- True story of a family and their streamroller of a Labrador retriever. Marley crashed through screen doors, gouged through drywall, stole women's undergarments, and taught everyone about unconditional love.
- Long Synopsis:
- John and Jenny were just beginning their life together. They were young and in love, with a perfect little house and not a care in the world. Then they brought home Marley, a wriggly yellow furball of a puppy. Life would never be the same. Marley quickly grew into a barreling, ninety-seven-pound streamroller of a Labrador retriever. He crashed through screen doors, gouged through drywall, and stole women's undergarments. Obedience school did no good -- Marley was expelled. And yet his heart was pure. Just as Marley joyfully refused any limits on his behavior, his love and loyalty were boundless, too. A dog like no other, Marley remained steadfast, a model of devotion, even when his family was at its wit's end. Unconditional love, they would learn, comes in many forms.

Reviews of Marley and Me: Life and Love with the World's Worst Dog (1 review)
Growing up with a poorly behaved but lovable dog myself, I can relate to John’s experience with Marley. But this book also reinforced my belief that dogs teach us what is really important in life: not wealth or material possessions, but love and devotion. Whether you like dogs or not, everyone should read this book because it is so heart warming, and since I am a dog lover, I closed this book with a deeper love and appreciation for my dog.
