Marley & Me

I finally watched Marley and Me. I was really excited about this movie when it came out, because I loved the book so much. I bought the book back when I was flying, I was a flight attendant at the time. I thought it would be a good read because I have a labrador, so I figured I could relate. It would also give me something to do during the down time on my flights. So there I was reading Marley and Me every spare second I had, I couldn't put it down. I don't want to ruin the movie/book for anyone who has not seen/read it yet, but I'm sure by now though you know the story. Anyway, I'm sure the passengers felt real safe or thought I was a lunatic when they looked up from their seats and saw me crying my eyes out in the galley as I read. Comforting. The book about killed me, so you can see why I was hesitant to see the movie, HELLO I don't need a visual! When I read the reviews I was scared to go see it in the theatre, balling my eyes out in public is not something I'm really into. It finally came out on dvd, so I had to muster up the courage to rent it last night. It was a great movie, it really made me want another labrador puppy. Half way through the movie I said to Justin, "Maybe we should stop it now", knowing what was to come. I did not know how detailed they were going to be. Of course it was heart-wrenching, I tried my best not to cry, no such luck with that. I'm pretty sure Justin was tearing up too, he really worries about losing Bleu. I really recommend reading the book though, there is so much in the book that was not in the movie. I love Marley, he was such a wonderful dog with such a great story. John Grogan did a wonderful job telling Marley's story. He really shows you how much love a dog can bring to a family. Ugh, it makes me want to cry just thinking about it. So on that note here are my babies, they mean the world to me!

I saw the movie & loved it too! And there wasn't a dry eye in the theatre either!

My heart aches to think of losing one of our beloved kids.
