Marley and Me
John Grogan is a very young man when this book starts out. He'a just gotten married to Jenny Vogt. Both of them are journalists. They're living the sweet life in Florida when Jenny becomes so upset after she kills a houseplant (she worries that this means that she's incapable of being a good mother) that they decide to buy a dog, to give her the nurturing experience she so desperately wants.
They pick out a yellow lab puppy whom they'll name Marley...
