Pequena biografia
John Grogan is the Pennsylvania columnist for the Philadelphia Inquirer and the former editor in chief of Rodale's Organic Gardening magazine. Previously he worked as a reporter, bureau chief, and columnist at newspapers in Michigan and Florida. His work has won numerous awards, including the National Press Club's Consumer Journalism Award. He lives on a wooded hillside in Pennsylvania with his wife, Jenny, and their three children, and a surprisingly calm Labrador retriever named Gracie. [from Marley and Me, 2005]



The heartwarming and unforgettable story of a family and the wondrously neurotic dog who taught them what really matters in life. Now with photos and new material. Is it possible for humans to discover the key to happiness through a bigger-than-life, bad-boy dog? Just ask the Grogans. John and Jenny were just beginning their life together. They were young and in love, with not a care in the world. Then they brought home Marley, a wiggly yellow furball of a puppy. Life would never be the same. Marley grew into a barreling, ninety-seven-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. But just as Marley joyfully refused any limits on his behavior, his love and loyalty were boundless, too. Marley remained a model of devotion, even when his family was at its wit´s end. Unconditional love, they would learn, comes in many forms. Marley & Me is John Grogan´s funny, unforgettable tribute to this wonderful, wildly neurotic Lab and the meaning he brought to their lives.… (mais)

Esse livro ensina muito sobre o amor e a vida. Parece ridículo eu parodiar a título, mas é a mais pura verdade. Ele mostra como com amor e paciência tudo pode parecer uma grande brincadeira!
Só quem tem e ama um cão, nada politicamente correto, sabe como é maravilhoso viver ao lado dele! Eu me lembrei dos meus cães boxers... e é claro da minha Sophie, que depois de tudo isso que eu li, nem parece mais dar tanta despesa assim!!! :) E é claro, foi promovida a subir na cama do papai e da mamãe!
Cães são presentes de Deus para os humanos continuarem praticando humanidade! :)
