Marnie the Dog

Marnie the Dog

Shirley Braha

Once an old, sick dog who was found on the streets and named "Stinky," Marnie the Dog got a second lease on life when she was adopted from a shelter at age ten. Soon, her signature looks and endearing personality would capture the hearts of not only her new owner, but nearly everyone she encountered. After photos and videos of Marnie started circulating online, Marnie began charming millions over the world. Whether you're a dog or human, Marnie proves it's never too late to start a new chapter of your life and live it to the fullest. Using a sophisticated creative process compromised of unlimited treats and lots of love, Marnie and her human companion have created their first book of never-before-seen photos--and a few classics, too.

  1. “Marnie the Dog” and “If it fits, I sits” are two of my favorites! I like to keep these kind of books around my house to entertain my friends (and their tiny humans) and they make my animal loving heart happy!

  2. True story – The Art of Racing in the Rain was my very first ebook purchase. Love it.

  3. If it fits, I sits was the cutest book! We have cats so yeah… true story…
