Loving every page of this book: Marley & Me
A dog lover? You must read this book. A fellow Lab owner? You will relate to everything in this book.
I originally bought it for Brandon and this was probably the first book that he has raved on and on about. There are so many similarities between our story and the couple’s in this book.
Reading this book makes me constantly want to pet and cuddle with our pup Rocco. I’m amazed at how big he’s grown and all the memories we’ve had with him in the past two years. So very happy He chose this particular dog to be in our life.
Loved looking at some photos of when we first brought him home (boy did we have NO IDEA what we were in for…he was just a cute little fuzzy ball…)
A good sign of things to come:
We think this is when Rocco first started believing that he is actually a cat:
Our little man – the only male of the litter – on the far right.
Just want to add that now that I have you cooing over my sweet puppy photos….
I don’t recommend going out and getting yourself one of these fuzzy little balls of hell. Okay, maybe that’s harsh…but really, if we ever did or do it ever again, we will be finding ourselves a grown yellow lab – perferably a rescue. Puppies and dogs are SO much more work than they were years ago. There are so many fancy techniques and training that I certainly do not remember doing as a kid with my own childhood dogs…but they are the only way to go these days.
So please, rescue a dog if you can. Train your dog by taking him to Petsmart, etc. Socialize your dog. Exercise your dog by taking it on walks. Do not leave it in the backyard thinking that is exercise enough. And for God sakes, spay or neuter your dog! Too many rednecks around here don’t and the amount of strays I see daily is so sad and frustrating.
