Marley Me Life and Love with the World's Worst Dog MOBI

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 wiggly yellow furball of a puppy Life would never be the sameMarley quickly grew into a barreling ninety seven pound streamroller of a Labrador retriever a dog like no other He crashed through screen doors gouged through drywall flung drool on guests stole women's undergarments and ate nearly everything he could get his mouth around including couches and fine jewelry Obedience school did no good—Marley was expelled Neither did the tranquilizers the veterinarian prescribed for him with the admonishment Don't hesitate to use theseAnd yet Marley's heart was pure Just as he joyfully refused any limits on his behavior his love and loyalty were boundless too Marley shared the couple's joy at their first pregnancy and their heartbreak over the miscarriage He was there when babies finally arrived and when the screams of a seventeen year old stabbing victim pierced the night Marley shut down a public beach and managed to land a role in a feature length movie always winning hearts as he made a mess of things Through it all he 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

    This is a mediocre book written by horrible dog ownersMarley sounds like an amusing guy but I think pets are like kids you don't get nearly as much joy from people telling you stories about their kids as you do from watching your own I have dogs whom I love very much and often things they do I find to be very entertaining even though others might not derive the same level of enjoyment if I were to tell them all about it For this reason there are no parts of the book that are truly funny Perhaps I would have laughed at some parts of the book if Marley was my dog or if I at least knew Marley but he's not and I don'tUnfortunately this isn't what I disliked most about the book What really stands out is that the author and his wife are horrible pet owners At best they are negligent parents More accurately I think quite a bit of their behavior borders on animal abuse In the half of the book I read they did the following Decided to get a dog for purely selfish purposes parental practice Read nothing about the breed before choosing to adopt a Lab Failed to do any research into the breeder Failed to seek out a trainer to work with Marley's quirks despite obvious behavioral issues Failed to provide Marley with adequate protection from storms which completely terrified him Used a choker with zeal while almost deriving joy from Marley's near self strangulation Allowed Marley to escape from a moving vehicle seemingly finding humor in Marley hanging out a moving car by his collar The worst part comes at the end During the last few weeks of his life Marley becomes very sick What does the author do? He leaves the dog at the vet's office and packs the family into the van for a Disney vacation Fortunately he gets back just in time to have Marley put down I then get the impression that he expects us to feel sorrow for his loss I can't imagine going on vacation while either of my pets are left deathly ill at the vet's office I had already developed a strong dislike for the author's idea of pet care This last incident really validated that opinion
