    We watched the movie Marley and Me last night.

    Baaaaaaaaaad idea! The book ended with them picking the new puppy. The movie does not. Very very very sad. I did not realize that DD2 was getting sick. She was running a fever and I hadn't spotted it. By movies end it was cllear this was not going to go well.

    By 2 AM she had a 102 fever and she was freaking out about the dog. walking around her room saying, "I keep picking up dog hair!" Ranting about helping out the dog and her stomach flipping over.

    We did what we could to cool her down safely and I sept with her (if you could call it that.) on the sofa. This morning she is only slightly feverish, doesn't remember last night at all........ [​IMG] Who said raising kids would be boring?

    Oh my I am sorry. I hope she is feeling better now. My dd2 (who is 6) has night terrors and walks/talks in her sleep all the time. She has done this since she was very little. Can be very frightening sometimes. And I did notice that it gets worse when she's not feeling well.
    I had ordered Marley and me on netflixs and then Dh said it wasn't appropriate for the younger kids from what he had heard - basically the same thing you said - so I sent it back without ever watching it.
    I don't like sad dog movies.... [​IMG]

    I hope your dd gets better soon.
    MArley and me is such a great movie. I don't think it's appropriate for really young kids buy 10 and up can handle it. If you ever had a bad dog that you adored this movie is for you. Yes, it;s sad but unfortunately if you have a special dog, one day you have to make the choice of letting it go. marley lived to be an old dog and the writer by his compassion and love will meet him on rainbow bridge.

    I saw it and even tho it ended sadly I thought it was a good movie that dealt with a pet and the loss of that pet in a very real manner. Lots of us are forced in our pet's last days to make that same decision. We don't do our kids any favors by protecting them from the hard parts of life. Living on a working farm with a cow herd my kids grew up dealing with the death of pets and other animals.

    DD is feeling better today, not all better, but low grade fever and cranky..... but not too cranky to eat!~ Wheew can that child pack away some food when her body is burning up the fuel! Wow!

    I knew Marley and Me was sort of sad, but it saoid family comedy on it and I think it was as many said - more appropriate for ten or older. My mistake, I should have prescreened which I usually do. There was a decent amount of cursing and alot of innuendo which the girls didn't get and wanted explained....
