John and Jenny were just beginning their life together. They were young and in love, with a perfect little house and not a care in the world. Then they brought home Marley, a wriggly yellow furball of a puppy. Life would never be the same.

Marley quickly grew into a barreling, ninety-seven-pound streamroller of a Labrador retriever. He crashed through screen doors, gouged through drywall, and stole women's undergarments. Obedience school did no good -- Marley was expelled.

And yet his heart was pure. Just as Marley joyfully refused any limits on his behavior, his love and loyalty were boundless, too. A dog like no other, Marley remained steadfast, a model of devotion, even when his family was at its wit's end. Unconditional love, they would learn, comes in many forms.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Dog lovers will delight in the antics of Marley, a yellow lab, as he happily terrorizes the Grogan household. John Grogan, columnist for the Philadelphia Inquirer, reads this account of life with, arguably, one of the world’s worst dogs…You can hear the affection in Grogan’s voice, even as he relates his frustrating, humbling, and humiliating experiences with such a lovable menace. Grogan starts out reading a bit stiffly, but he soon finds his groove and delivers a listening experience that will keep one wishing for a longer commute.”


  • “A humorous and loving tribute…Throughout, the family is steadfastly devoted to this badly behaved yet totally lovable and loyal pup…Readers…whose dogs would qualify for the ‘Bad Dog Club’ will delight in this tribute.”

    Library Journal

  • “A warm, friendly-memoir-with-dog.”


  • “If you know someone who claims there’s not a book in the world that can make him cry, give him this one. It won’t even matter if he’s not a dog lover. He’ll cry anyway. Trust me.”

    Chicago Sun-Times

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Susan Troiano | 2/14/2014

    " I loved this book and of course I cried at the end. I know many people may not read this knowing Marley died but he had a good life with a family that put up with his mischief ways that brought humor to the family. I had a Marley myself but not as funny as this Marley. "

    " I cried like a baby. I loved the way Grogan described his life before and with Marley. I laughed, I cheered, I felt badly, but loved it. If you read the book, don't see the movie. It vastly pales in comparison. "

    " This was a wonderful book that i would read to my little sisters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Kelly Eastman | 1/31/2014

    " I absolutely loved this book. Probably one of the BEST books I've read. If you have seen the movie, you have not even come close to knowing the real story of Marley and his family. I laughed out loud, cried out loud, and overall purely enjoyed reading this wonderful story. "
