Now, ordinarilly, that would be tough enough, right? No one wants to see a once former cute puppy getting euthanized. And in this movie that scene is particularly wrenching, to the point where I was like, “Okay already — let me off the hook here!”
But the thing that makes it really tough is that we’ve got two aging pets of our own: Our dog Mona and our cat Lucy. And, of course, when you see a pet get put to sleep on screen, you can’t help but think about –
Now, I could take a positive side and think, well, at least the movie shows that others, like Marley’s owner, have been through this before. But then I think: Yeah, and then the guy wrote a book about it and became a millionaire.
That probably won’t happen when our pets die. We’ll just have dead pets and be really sad. If I were to try to write about it, publishing houses would be like, “Dude — have you read ‘Marley & Me’?”
I haven’t read the book, but the movie was actually pretty good. And though it reminded me that our dog will be dead someday, it also reminded me what a good pooch she is.
You think anyone would publish a book about a really good dog?
I can throw in some funny stuff about her being afraid of the wind and going down slides. And at the end, I can I have a really touching scene where she dies.
Okay, how about a book about a cat . . .
