Marley

I'm a crazy dog lady. In fact, I sometimes prefer the company of canines over certain people.

So when I received Marley & Me for Christmas about 3 years ago, I fell in love. It doesn't matter if you have a pooch, cat, fish, bird or like or hate dogs; the story will make you laugh out loud and cry all over the pages, I promise. Imagine my complete euphoria when I saw the preview for the movie. Once I get over the images of the famous actors ("What's Jennifer Aniston doing in normal clothes and walking a yellow lab?") I'm hoping the movie is as adorable as the book.

  2. I LOVED this book, and so did my husband. From the previews it appears that they've changed the plot quite a bit, but I'm still excited to see it.

  3. I'm too scared to read this book! I heard a grown man was reading this on a plane and completely broke down! I want to be in denial about my two dogs living forever! *sniff*

  6. Someone spoiled the ending of the book for me so now I can't bring myself to read it. Is it worth reading if I know the last part?

  7. I also think that our dog will live forever. *sniffle*
    Suzie & Mrs. L~ YES! So worth the read, tears and all and even if you know the ending. The ending was my least favorite part to be honest. The journey the rest of the book takes you on makes up for it.

  11. People magazine just did an article about Clyde, one of the dogs that played Marley in the movie. It was so adorable...definitely on my list of movies to see over Xmas break.

  17. Beer pong is definitely a good way to take advantage of my sensibilities and get that recipe. I'm scared to see Marley & Me...I haven't read the book, I don't know if I can handle the sadness.

  18. The book was great and I think Aniston will do a stellar job. I might cry all over again though.
