There are so many Marvins out there in shelters all over the country, waiting to be brought into someone's home, to be special. Lets hope they all find people who love them, like this wonderful dog.

So glad to see that Marvin was appreciated. Animals do so much for us, and in return they don't always get what they deserve. Those of us who are animal lovers will do our best for them, but so many people mistreat them. It's a sad thing. This story tells it like it should be.

Marvin sounds like an absolutely wonderful dog and I am sure he is missed by his owners and the people in the assisted living facilities and nursing facilities that he visited. Labs are such wonderful dogs. I own two myself and they are really precious and love and love and love. Their love is limitless and all they want is a little love and affection in return. It sounds like Marvin had a rough start in life, but he never gave up and found the forever home where he could be happy and have a useful and successful life. Would that more shelter dogs could have happy endings like Marvin? Of my 2 labs, one was a shelter dog and the other was a free puppy ad. My free puppy ad dog, was emaciated and looked terrible. He was being eaten alive with fleas and you could see all of his ribs. Now at 90 pounds you would never know it, but alas he suffers from hip dysplasia. My shelter dog was much better off. She was the last of her litter and the only one not adopted, and we got her the day she was surrendered to the pound, so she was hardly there.
