John Grogan page
Fix obvious vandalism, please
I noticed some pretty POV statements and some unverified claims in the article (which I have tagged as such). I am just letting people know here; it isn't overly imperative that it be fixed, there is no deadline, but it would improve the article. D4g0thur 07:48, 23 July 2007 (UTC)
Who is Mark Pina and why does it matter that this film is being shot behind his house in Miami, FL? I don't think this qualifies as notable data. I only mention this because it's been re-added to the info over and over again. Flibbert (talk) 21:23, 25 February 2008 (UTC)
After the wedding John and Jennifer Grogan move to Florida. John buys Jennifer a puppy, they soon learn to not like it as it is a pain and eats every thing and destroys everything it sees. Marley grows into a 100lbs dog, and has a dog attitude instead of a puppy one and thinks he is man of the house.
Marley has no respect for anything in the house, John is a newspaper editor, and he has a column. Marley the crazy dog he is and all the stuff he does gives John entries for his article. Marley soon begins to test everyones patients, but soon they realize how much they love the dog and how much it means to the family. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 17:35, 31 May 2009 (UTC)
Though Gastric Dilitation Volvulous is seen more often in older, large breed dogs, it is not limited to them as this article implies. Please see this citation and make the appropriate changes so the public will not read this and think their dog is "safe" because of its age. That simple is not true.
Thank you, Lisa P. veterinary nurse
- For anybody trying to follow up this comment, the technical name for "bloat" is correctly spelled: "Gastric dilatation-volvulus", or GDV for short. It means, approximately, "stomach swelling and twisting".
- Also, you can find the 'tilde' character '~' to the left of the exclamation mark '!' on the US keyboard. yoyo (talk) 18:56, 23 February 2012 (UTC)
Type of Labrador Retriever Marley Is
What kind of labrador retriever was Marley? English? American? I remember from the book that he was the type that should be used for hunting and is not the ideal "spoiled" family pet.Gatorgirl7563 (talk) 16:08, 25 November 2009 (UTC)
Subjective statements in summary
Statement "with a heart of gold" in the summary is totally subjective/POV. What is the source of this information? Rephrasing would be nice, to something like "described by the author as having a heart of gold" with proper references. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Victor Markus Purri (talk • contribs) 02:51, 8 April 2011 (UTC)
