My owner, Donna Shepherd, wrote the book Poodle & Doodle. It's about me (of course), but I have to admit, just as much about the 'new' dog, a labradoodle. In the book, she is a 'he' named Scruffy, but in real life, her name is Sadie. Just her head is almost as big as I am!Poodle and Doodle is published by Guardian Angel Publishing.

Mama Donna's Books for Kids:
Mama Donna took me to the doctor because I had a lump on my chest. The vet thinks it's a lipoma - a benign fatty lump. Older, overweight dogs can develop them, but I tell you I am NOT old and certainly not fat. I'm just right! Now I have to have it removed and the doc will clean my teeth, too. I want to keep my teeth nice and bright, but I'm not too keen on being sedated.
Here I am reigning from the middle of the queen-sized bed - perfect for a royal pup like me. Don't my ears look pretty?
UPDATE: I came through surgery fine. I have stitches on my chest and on my back, but I'm pretty sure my coat will grow out and cover them up. I hope so! I also had my teeth cleaned. No cavities for me!
Jack Foster sent Donna one of the first illustrations for Poodle & Doodle. Here I am trying to have a proper tea with Leah and who crashes the party? Scruffy (aka Sadie in real life)!
Unlike me, Sadie doesn't visit the groomer very often. She gets brushed out and that's about it. Oh, the horror of it all! Here's Sadie as a puppy showing off her wild look.
This is one of my favorite pictures because, as you can see from her profile, she really does have some poodle traits.
Mayra also wrote a book about her pet called Crash! You know the best part? She donates 50% of the royalties from CRASH! to Almost Heaven Golden Retriever Rescue and Sanctuary. Isn't that great?
Amigo has his own blog, too. Click HERE. In this picture, Mama Mayra says Amigo is trying to terrorize ducks in the local park. Oh, dear. We poodles wouldn't do that, would we? I wonder if Raleigh would since he's a goldendoodle - half golden retriever?
He's a mini toy poodle mix. His mama is Laura Weir. Mama Donna met her on Facebook after Laura posted some pictures of Rusty. He's 1 year and 4 months old and he's a very good boy. He was potty/grass trained in only 3 weeks (so smart — never soils the house), but he loves to throw the pillows off the couch.
Laura said Rusty only weighed 4 pounds when she got him, and now he's a whopping 12 pounds - like me! I bet we could play really well together, and he wouldn't run me over like Sadie does now and then.
Here he is now all grown up. He's a very handsome boy.
This is the picture that caught Mama's eye. With Rusty looking into the fisheye lens like that, he looks like his nose is almost as big as a labradoodle's!
One of Mama Donna's fellow Guardian Angel Publishing (GAP for short) authors has written a book called Tucker's Tale about a dog who is rescued. 100% of the author and illustrator proceeds from the sale of this book to be donated to animal rescues nationwide. That's a good thing, right? I have always had a loving home. I'm so glad!
Meet the author, Christopher Walsh, and see a video about Tucker. Click HERE.
It looks like Holly goes to the groomer, too. I always come home with a pretty bandana or pink bows in my ears. Here's a picture Cynthia sent. I have to say she's pretty cute, although not as cute as me. Close though!
Can you believe Holly has even done her own interview? She talks about the books that Mama Cindy has written like Kitty Kerplinking and Doggie Day Camp. Click HERE to read it.
Now we have photographic evidence!
Here Sadie is being a good girl, right? Nope. She's scoping out where Mama is!
Sneaking around the corner. Uh-oh. Caught!
Yep, that's how she does it. I wish I could reach that high!
At least they are both leaving me alone so I can finish grooming my nails.
Good grief. Is Donna ever going to give up on trying to get me to pose?
