B and I watched Marley and Me on Saturday, and I thought it would be another Woen Wilson goofy movie but no, oh no, oh no no no. I cried for the last 30 minutes of the movie. I had forgotten its a true story. I was not expecting the ending. Oh man oh man oh man.
It was really cool in the beginning of the movie, because I’ve learned a lot about labs from all my reading about guide dogs. So I got a kick out of Marley trying to eat everything lol! Gave me even more respect for puppy raisers!
I posted to my email list while recovering from the ending of the movie, and it was recommended to me to read the book, because the author narrates it, and he gets tearful at the end. Yikes!
So Marley and Me goes on the list of recommended books.
It also came out that Kean Koonz writes books about dogs. Here’s an excerpt from an email about him:
“Dean Koontz has also recently published a memoir of life with his first pet dog, a Golden Retriever named Trixie. The book is called A BIG LITTLE LIFE and is on BookShare. I truly enjoyed the book and it gives his insight as to how Trixie affected his writing of books he wrote during that time period. Koontz and his wife are big supporters of CCI of the South-West which plays quite a role in this book.”
“Dean Koontz, just came out with a fantastic two doggy related books.
One The Darkest Evening of the year is about Golden retrievers and rescue, and well Dean Koontz at its best.
he just wrote one about his dog Tricksie, smile, am thinking Little Dog Big Life, smile.
Both were good, as was Watchers, another good book.”
“Amen to that.
Another one of his books I like for the Dog character is Midnight.
Is abut computer possessed humans, but the dog character is a black lab named Moose I believe who is a service dog, and a good one. is a black lab and does a lot of things in the story. But loved Darkest Evening, just because of how he perceived Goldens. Smile.”
Man, these people really like Dean Koonz. I don’t think I’m spelling his name right. I get a pass. I’m sick and brain dead. Hence the copying emails 😉
