CD Audiobook read by John Grogan
Who can resist the adorable face of an 'innocent' looking puppy? Even if he turns out to be a bit mischievous, Marley is the warm and loving pet of the Grogan household. Marley manages to endure many adventures with his family, including a chain of unsuccessful dog training sessions, a burglarized neighborhood, numerous foreign objects in his stomach, and an acting role for a feature film. This touching story about the trials and tribulations of a Labrador retriever and his family will tug at your heart and pull on your laugh lines!
The author not only captures the antics of our furry friends with a light and humorous voice, but he lays the groundwork for the real meaning of those relationships between human and animals. The bonding and unconditional love that develops among family members - including the four-legged variety. As with most relationships, there are subtle lessons to be learned and memories to create. No doubt, this book is a must read for dog-lovers!
My recommendation: 4 out of 5 stars
