There is nothing more endearing than a pet owner calling his/her dog as the "world's worst dog". For me, it is a statement of love filled with a sense of pride and acceptance... of everything.
And that is what John Grogan did as he recounted Marley's antics and adventures.
I never thought that I could feel more love for my dogs, particularly my great black lab who, like Marley might probably hold a world title - as the most energetic dog.
This book showed that dogs doesn't need to be perfect and neither should any owner expect them to be.
They are loyal, affectionate, crazy, sweet, hyperactive, protective and very devoted. Which is surprising as it is very hard to find humans with all those qualities.
We are all very lucky to receive these gifts from these four legged friends. Without conditions and beyond everything else.
Who wants a well behaved dog when you can have a dog who shows their love in an adventurous and exciting way like Marley?
