My husband still has not seen Marley & Me. It likely has something to do with how, on a road trip to BC two summers ago, I was in the backseat with the kids watching the movie and sniffling and sobbing quietly so they wouldn’t hear. In the review mirror, my husband just looked at me and shook his head. Having had a dog for 15 years of my childhood, I can definitely relate to that kind of love.
Now, fans of Marley & Me, and those who may have not even seen the movie, have the opportunity to meet Marley as a pup and see how this rambunctious, mischievous dog was as a…well, rambunctious and mischievous puppy.
Fall into puppy love with “the world’s worst dog,” who now has a frisky voice and an attitude to match. Join Marley for his mischievous puppy years, as he and his summer pal, Bodie Grogan, wreak havoc on a neighborhood dog contest. Marley outwits Dobermans, Shepherds and Collies, while stealing hearts in his own unique and lovable way.
Filmed here in Canada, in beautiful British Columbia, this movie is now on DVD and Blu-ray as of August 16th.
Following the box office smash hit of Marley and Me, the world’s most misbehaved dog returns in Marley & Me: The Puppy Years as a loveable pint size puppy. This time Marley spends the summer with his owner, Bodie Grogan, who has to live with his strict veteran grandfather while trying to prepare Marley for the neighborhood dog agility contest. This is a fantastic adventure filled with fun, laughs, and love.
The fire fighting Dalmatian isn’t the only working dog in town – there are many other types of heroic doggies, from the Seeing Eye dog to the St. Bernard Mountain Rescue ranger. In Marley and Me: The Puppy Years, the Marley saves his team by escaping the junkyard. We take a look at some well-known pet professions and pick up Marley and Me: The Puppy Years out on Blu-Ray Disc and DVD August 16th!
* Border Collies – Border Collies are often used for herding sheep and other livestock on farms because of their natural pack instinct. They take direction well even from a distance which makes them ideal for working. They will also protect their charges from predators like wolves and coyotes.
* St. Bernards – St. Bernards have a long history serving as rescue dogs, especially in the mountains. They are known for their size and strength which helps them rescue people who have been trapped. St. Bernards are comfortable in the cold and have a keen sense of direction so it is no wonder they were often used in avalanche territory.
* Newfoundlands – These dogs are also often used for rescue but are more suitable for doing so in the water. Newfoundlands are excellent swimmers because of their webbed feet and their water-resistant coats make them likely lifeguards. This makes them particularly common aboard lifeguard boats and out at sea.
* Dalmatians – Dalmatians are often associated with and were used in iconic imagery of the firehouse. They were originally engaged by firemen to clear the path for fire trucks that were pulled by horses because of the congenial nature of both animals. Even though horses are no longer employed the canines have stuck around to guard the house and the firemen.
* Australian Sheppard’s – like the Australian team in the movie, these dogs are fantastic farm animals that are known for their tremendous skills in herding. They are also known to be amazing search and rescue dogs, disaster, guide, and detection dogs.
* Beagles – These intelligent dogs may be small but don’t let their size mislead you. Because people aren’t automatically wary of them, beagles can be used in places like airports and train stations as detection dogs. Their sense of smell is excellent for uncovering drugs, explosives and other forms of contraband.
* German Shepherds – German Shepherds are extremely loyal and smart dogs that can be trained to do a number of tasks. They often serve as guard or enforcement dogs for the police by doing tasks such as hunting down criminals and sniffing for bombs and drugs. Though their size can intimidate this can be useful for cops and the military that need to instill fear in suspects.
* Golden Retrievers – Golden Retrievers like Marley are great dogs and make for even better work dogs. These dogs can be working in anything from sniffing out things like bombs or drugs for the police to being guide dogs for the blind. Also retrievers can track things like other animals extremely well, which is why they make for great hunting dogs.
