Hubby was feeling good enough this afternoon that we went to see Marley & Me with my parents. I had read the book and I was fully prepared for the tissues that would be required; however, I was seriously sobbing as the end of the movie approached. Let me tell you, movie theater napkins just don't quite cut it in replace of Kleenex. It really was a very good movie and it reminded me so much of Bogey, which is why I think I cried so much. The only frustrating thing is that as a dog lover I believe in getting another dog soon after you lose one as there will be new memories to come with a new puppy--in the book this is exactly what the family did and they didn't portray that in the movie. I realize you can never "replace" a dog; but you can make new memories and new stories will come that will help you remember the fun you had with a previous dog.
Finally, Amy from Chapters requested a few of my favorite holiday pictures so here they are! Unfortunately I was always behind my camera so there aren't many of me.
