Publisher's Summary

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 wriggly yellow furball of a puppy. Life would never be the same.

Marley quickly grew into a barreling, 97-pound streamroller of a Labrador retriever. He crashed through screen doors, gouged through drywall, and stole women's undergarments. Obedience school did no good, Marley was expelled.

And yet his heart was pure. Just as Marley joyfully refused any limits on his behavior, his love and loyalty were boundless, too. A dog like no other, Marley 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.

What the Critics Say

  • 2006 Quill Award Winner

"Grogan's chronicle of the adventures parents and children (eventually three) enjoyed with the overly energetic but endearing dog is delivered with great humor. Dog lovers will love this account of Grogan's much loved canine." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Not for cat lovers"

    Okay . . . I admit I'm a cat person. I don't much like dogs. They smell, they bark, they drool, leave obvious "marks" in the yard, and other things of which I'm not particularly fond. My friend said I would love this book anyway. I didn't. The narrator, who is also the author, did not bring much to the story-telling. The repeated acts by Marly that were characterized as endearing in the book, would have resulted in a trip to the animal shelter if they had happened in my house. (Please! No hate retorts from dog lovers!!) I think if you truly are a dog-lover you would love this book. If you're into cats, stay away.

    "Annoying"

    The only reason I finished this book was my shear disbelief that it had become a best seller and that I had paid good money for it. The author's lack of common sense in dog-training has nearly tragic consequences. The dog comes close to destroying the family or being abandoned by it. It is not amusing to listen to the author sabotage his own dog's behavior by perpetually reinforcing his destructiveness. I don't get how he could persist in his ignorance for all those years. A visit to a good dog trainer could have saved the dog and the family a lot of pain and frustration.
