Marley & Me: Life and Love With the World's Worst Dog

Marley and Me is an incredibly cute book by John Grogan about a mischievous golden retriever that he and his wife brought into their home. They both had fond memories of dogs from their childhoods and were convinced that they would have the same experience with Marley. But they were in for a surprise. Marley was an incredibly hyper, curious, and playful dog who brought a lot to the life of the Grogans.

The book is full of funny and heartwarming stories about the dog and the family as they grew, from a tiny puppy and his newlywed owners to a full grown dog and an established family. Marley and Me is a touching story that even someone who doesn't like dogs will enjoy.

The book is also being turned into a movie starring Owen Wilson and Jennifer Aniston. The movie comes out Christmas Day.

Check out the page for the book and this page for the movie.
