I just finished Marley and Me last night. I picked it up last weekend at Barnes & Noble as I was walking near the CD books. The adorable photo on the cover caught my eye....they had a display of the CD book out in the open. Being an avid animal and cat and dog lover, I couldn't pass it up.

Needless to say, I devoured the book in two days. I loved it. To me it was so refreshing to see such commitment in another dog owner. I have always believed that when you adopt a pet it should be part of the family, and it is a lifelong commitment. You don't give up and get rid of them, just because of hard times or problems.

I applaud Mr. Grogan, and his family, for being the kind of people who love and care for their dog friends and for writing such a heartfelt tribute to his pal, Marley. Pets ask for so little and return so much.

I have had many cats and dogs and I always get a kick out of the commercial on TV for a new ziplock dog food bag for a certain chow...they use the expression "Dogs Rule". How perfect. There is nothing quite like having a pet cat or dog , whether they have impeccable manners or not.

I laughed and I cried and I understood everything that Mr. Grogan had to say. I have lived in Georgia and spent a lot of time in Florida so I felt a special connection to the Grogans when they were speaking of the culture here and the thunderstorms--and how dogs, cats and their people hate them.

All in all, Mr. Grogan's writing is clear and interesting and down to earth. I couldn't put the book down. It is a joy.

I even went so far and to visit the website he has listed in the book. There was an email address to write to him, which I did, and I was absolutely amazed when Mr. Grogan wrote back to me three hours later to thank me for my nice comments.

Do yourself a favor and read the'll close it in the end and your heart will feel like it is too large to fit inside your chest.
