Marley and Me by John Grogan

This book has been on the non-fiction list for months for a reason: it's lovely. I was loaned a copy by my step-mother who has a healthy disdain for indoor pets. It was a surprise to me that she loved the book so much. I read it over the course of two evenings and found myself both laughing out loud and crying by the end.

In Marley and Me: Life and Love with the World's Worst Dog John Grogan recounts how he and his newlywedded wife decided to get a puppy. This one decision had tremendous impact over the next thirteen or so years of their life.

If you've ever:
  • killed a houseplant
  • had a dog afraid of storms
  • been a pet sitter
  • wanted a baby
  • had a miscarriage
  • changed jobs
  • out grown your house
  • had a dog who drools
  • or eats your furnishings

This book is for you.
