Synopsis

"Oh my. I don't think I've ever seen anything so cute in my life." Thus author Grogan's wife sealed their fate when they "just went to look" at a litter of Labrador retriever puppies and ended up picking out Marley.

Maybe their first clue should have been that the breeder had discounted the price on their puppy, or when they saw his father charging out of the woods covered in mud with a crazed but joyous look in his eye.

Despite these portents, Marley entered their lives, and nothing was ever the same again. Between careening through screen doors and swallowing everything that would fit in his mouth, Marley also managed to comfort these two when they miscarried their first child.

Although Marley got kicked out of obedience training after he dragged the instructor across the parking lot and terrorized his pet sitter, he also landed a minor role in a straight-to-video movie.




 

故事梗概

“噢,我的天。我从来没有见过这么可爱的小东西。”当格洛刚的妻子看见一窝拉布拉多小猎狗并从中挑选出马雷时,他们的命运就定了。




他们应该能够看出一些端倪,例如马雷的饲养者低价销售这窝小东西,或者小东西的爸爸浑身带泥地从树林中冲出来,眼神疯狂但很开心。




格洛刚夫妇对这些征兆视而不见,留下了马雷,从此一切都改变了。马雷经常猛冲撞破纱门,吞掉所有能塞进嘴里的东西。格洛刚夫妇宽容了这两件事,但是马雷又让他们流产了,失去了第一个孩子。




尽管马雷拉扯培训师横穿了一个停车场,威胁它的保姆,但还是在一部电影中出演了一个小角色,尽管电影并不在影院中放映,而是直接做成光盘出售。

 

Comment

Marley, incorrigible though he was, had inserted himself into the author's life in a way no normal dog could. A warm, friendly -memoir-with-dog.

评价

无可救药的马雷使作者的生活不同于任何其他狗主人的平凡生活。但这却是一本有关狗狗温馨、友好的回忆录。
