Marley and me book characters
Marley & Me
Soon after their wedding, John and Jenny Grogan Owen Wilson and Jennifer Aniston escape the brutal Michigan winters and relocate to a cottage in South Florida, where they are hired as reporters for competing newspapers. At The Palm Beach Post , Jenny immediately receives prominent front-page assignments, while at the South Florida Sun-Sentinel , John finds himself writing obituaries and two-paragraph articles about mundane news like a fire at the local garbage dump. When John senses Jenny is contemplating motherhood, his friend and co-worker Sebastian Tunney Eric Dane suggests the couple adopt a dog to see if they're ready to raise a family. From a litter of newborn yellow Labrador retrievers they select Marley named after reggae singer Bob Marley , who immediately proves to be incorrigible. They take him to Ms. Kornblut Kathleen Turner , who firmly believes any dog can be trained, but when Marley refuses to obey commands, she blows her whistle and Marley runs at and tackles her, pinning her to the ground and humps her leg, which causes Ms. Kornblut to expel Marley from obedience school.
