->''A dog has no use for fancy cars, big homes, or designer clothes. A waterlogged stick will do just fine. A dog doesn't care if you're rich or poor, clever or dull, smart or dumb. Give him your heart and he'll give you his. How many people can you say that about? How many people can make you feel rare and pure and special? How many people can make you feel extraordinary?''

*** It ''was'' mentioned. Several pages are dedicated to John trying to figure out how to write a column about it.

* FirstPetStory

to:

* FirstPetStoryFirstPetStory: Played straight in the movie. In the book, however, Marley isn't John's first pet (that would be Shaun, who actually has the book's first chapter entirely devoted to him), nor Jenny's for that matter.



* {{Keet}}: Marley

to:

* {{Keet}}: MarleyMarley is a dog version, especially when he's a puppy and actually fits the "small yet full of energy" description. Though when he gets huge he still has all the trope's characteristics except the small size.



* TheNineties: The film's early scenes are set in the early '90s - note the outdated technology and the reference to Desert Storm

* BigNo: In the book, John had one when he witnessed Marley about to take a dump on the beach, something that could get dog owners forbidden from walking their dogs there.

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationExpansion: In the film, John writes lots of colums about Marley in the newspaper throughout the dog's life. In the book/real life, John didn't write about Marley until after his death.
** When John and his family are burying Marley in the film, Jenny gives up her necklace that Marley had once swallowed to bury with him. Whether she did this in real life or not is not mentioned in the book.
* AdaptationDistillation: Will naturally happen when you're adapting a book into a 2-hour film. Most noticable however might be how John in real life had a dog as a child and both he and Jenny were determined to have one together as they were both dog lovers. In the film, John comments that he's never had a dog before and he decides to get one on a whim, something he surprises Jenny with.

* BeautyIsNeverTarnished: A canine version. Although he's clearly an older dog, the supposedly dying Marley looks quite handsome and healthy, rather than the thinning, elderly creature described by John Grogan in the book.



* {{Bowdlerise}}: When numerous children expressed interest in the book, John Grogan put out a child- friendly version, eliminating the more adult content, namely the, er, frank discussion of marital relations (not just their sex life, but Jenny's miscarriage, problems with her second pregnancy and post-partum depression, etc.)

* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass[=/=]LetsGetDangerous: Marley is usually a happy-go-lucky, energetic, not-too bright dog. However, when a neighbor gets stabbed, he goes straight into guard dog mode. John Grogan later starts to wonder why he ever doubted Marley's protective capabilities

Added DiffLines:

** Similarly, with the book. Kids naturally gravitated towards it because of the picture of the handsome labrador on the cover, but it isn't geared toward children at all. John Grogan recalls cringing from the dirty looks parents would give him at book signings, prompting him to write the tamer version cited above.
