Holly the Boston (Terror) Terrier

25 Jul

Geeky confession:  I purchased an audio book for my drive to and from the beach last weekend.

Scoff if you will, but what else was I supposed to do on a 4.5 hour drive alone (well, kind of, I had our 6 month old puppy traveling with me)?  Anyway, I listened to Marley & Me:  Life and Love with the World’s Worst Dog.  And, I loved every dorky minute of it.  I giggled, smiled, belly-laughed and cried.

I’ve raved so much about it that my mom is reading the book now.  She has a “Marley” dog herself, named Holly.  Holly is a 10 month old Boston Terrier who gives Marley a run for his money in the “World’s Worst Dog” category.  As of late, Holly has eaten the entire arm off of a chair, and knocked out every screen on the back porch – to make it more exit friendly, I presume.  She’s also chewed a hole in the wall (twice), consumed a few razors, and destroyed many a shoe in her short 9 months in their home.

As horrible as Holly is, much like Marley in the book, my parents accept her for her faults – and love her anyway.  Dogs, after all, show us unconditional love…I guess it’s only fair that we do the same for them.

Give Marley & Me a whirl if you love animals, are a pet owner, or plan to be one!
