Marvelous Marvin Goes to Heaven
My mom and I are sad today to have learned that Marvelous Marvin, a beautiful black lab who did lots of good in the world, has died.
Taken from Marvin's website:
Marvelous Marvin is based on the true story of an 3-year-old black Labrador who was relinquished by his original owner only to be rejected a second time because of a disability.
Despite his disability and rejection, Marvin never gave up hope and overcame his disability and rejection.
Marvelous Marvin has a happy ending, but getting there will certainly evoke your emotions.

Rest in peace, Marvin. Good dog.
