Lessons from "Marley and Me"



A quote from "Marley and Me"

(by author John Grogan)

"What I really wanted to say was how this animal touched our souls and taught us some of the most important lessons of our lives. A person can learn a lot from a dog, even a loopy one like ours. Marley taught me about living each day with unbridled exhuberance and joy, about seizing the moment and following your heart. He taught me to appreciate the simple things. As he grew old and achy, he taught me about optimism in the face of adversity. Mostly he taught me about friendship, selflessness and above all else, unwavering loyalty."

My bookclub read Marley and Me this fall, in September. I had a really hard time with the end of the book, because I have an aging Brittany Spaniel, Molly, who is a 10 year old puppy.
I love these pictures of your pets! It's good to see another crazy pet family! The beagles in hats particularly made me laugh!
