About this deal

Signs that Marley may not be the ideal Labrador appear early, foreshadowing a series of ongoing debacles resulting from Marley’s unending energy and disobedience. God will send you help when in times of need, you won’t believe it because sometimes the help could be a four-legged mammal. We take it for granted, but it is fragile, precarious, uncertain able to cease at any instant without notice. John Grogan’s novel “ Marley and Me” is an autobiographical story about his childhood, his adult life with his family and beloved dog – Marley.

I have not had an easy life so my new family will need to be patient with me and continue to teach me my doggie manners. Marley was suffering for 1,5 years, trying on his last legs to be that, young Marley, but his time was out. of a dog that crashes and crushes everything that he feels like , drool on guests, stole women's undergarments, and ate nearly everything from furniture to expensive jewelry. The story was inspired by the overwhelmingly positive reaction to Grogan’s obituary for his dog Marley. Such short little lives our pets have to spend with us, and they spend most of it waiting for us to come home each day.

The title is borrowed from a chapter near the end of the story in which John and Marley share an evening together, just the two of them, unbothered by the expectations or weight of the world around them. The speaker wasn’t knocked over or in any way amiss; the paper cone was simply gone, as if someone had sliced it out with a razor blade. Jenny overcomes a period of postpartum depression during which John works with Marley to improve his obedience. He’s a praiseworthy man – loving husband and father, a good friend for other people and especially for his dog. Marley earns a nonpaying role as a family dog in a feature-length film and finally completes obedience school.

A bloated stomach sends Marley to the vet a final time, where John says goodbye to his beloved companion before giving the vet permission to put Marley to sleep. He taught me to appreciate the simple things- a walk in the woods, a fresh snowfall, a nap in a shaft of winter sunlight. As pathetic as it sounds, Marley had become my male-bonding soul mate, my near-constant companion, my friend.The Grogans try to get him in an obeidence school from which he is expelled from, when they seek help of a veterinarian,he is prescribed anxiolytic meds with the admonishment, "Don't hesitate to use these" but nothing happens, Marley remained same. Long after that Jenny saw, as she said, the “reincarnation” of Marley – eyes full thirst for life, and inscription – “Full of zip!
