Marley story started here
Grogan started at the Sun-Sentinel as a reporter in 1987. He soon married, and he and wife Jenny Vogt, also a reporter at the time, bought a Labrador puppy to try out parenthood before they had kids.
Marley's antics were the stuff of occasional columns and newsroom lore.
The hyperactive hound got booted out of obedience school and barreled through Boca Raton's Mizner Park, a cafe table hooked to his leash.
But he also comforted Vogt after a miscarriage. He was Grogan's sole companion on his 40th birthday, and he was both a pain and a pleasure for the couple's three children.
"Marley was just crazy," said Jim Tolpin, a long-time friend and assistant general counsel for Greenberg Traurig in Miami. "Most of the time John kept him apart from people -- for their own protection."
