Marley & Me

I finished reading "Marley & Me" on Wednesday - oh my GAWD!!! Why didn't you people warn me - I mean you warned me but really you should have WARNED me!

I cried from beginning to end. Now part of that is because I have slipped out of the comfortably-numb phase back into the crying-buckets-of-tears-spontaneously phase again.

But holy-schmoly that is one tear-jerker of a book - and my dogs were both curled up with me as I was reading the end of the book - well, we had a bit of a snuggle fest for sure after I finished! If they weren't spoiled before, watch out, they are going to be even more loved and cuddled than ever now! The cats too!

Pets, what would we do without them!

Awww... I really want to meet your dogs! I like cats too, and would own one, but unfortunetly being around them makes me sneeze, cry and have trouble breathing... so they don't like me!

Don't see the movie...I've heard it is a real sob fest. Love the pictures of your pets.

I still can't figure out how you got all your animals to pose and stay together, now you're one crafty mommy!!

I'm going to put this on my list of must reads but I'm not taking it to Africa. Only happy books allowed on that trip. I am, however, taking a supply of bengal spice. ;-)

I have not read this book but will have to put it on my list for when all the adoption reading I have lined up is done.

What breed are your dogs? I love the big ears, they are so cute.....

Your pets are so darn cute. I hope you don't shed too many more tears.
Warm wishes to you over the holidays

I read that book while I was waiting to travel and get Gabbi. I was an emotional wreck to begin with so ya.. I cried like a baby through the entire book.

i'm with you there, what would we do without them. I was so sad when I read the book, I cried like a baby. I was just telling Chris the other day that I don't think i'll be able to watch the movie. It will be way to hard.

great pictures of the pack... although I think the cats would be rolling their eyes if they could. ;)

Bruce refuses to read that book after witnessing my many sob sessions while I was reading it. It is such a good book and I am really excited to see the movie!

Yah I absolutely loved that book! I knew it would be good, but it didn't realize how good.
