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 has a difficult time finding toys that Sadie can't chew to pieces. She bought a ring for Sadie that she could throw like a Frisbee. The only thing was, Sadie couldn't figure out how to pick it up out of the grass. Here she is the first time she picked it up. She ran all over the yard like that. Donna was bent over double laughing at her. How could she even see?
Here she is guarding her new toy. Look at her tongue! You can tell she played really hard. See the black dot? That's so not a poodle thing, but the lab part of her.
Sadie played and played, and she did not want to come in. She's outside on the deck, exhausted, but refusing to let go of her new toy.
Donna couldn't get her to come in, so she stood at the patio door for at least a half hour. It's getting dark and Raleigh and Ariel want her to come in, too. Can you see how dirty that toy is?
Mama Donna's niece, Heather, is owned by a Goldendoodle, Henry. When she first brought him home, he was like Sadie. He didn't like having his picture made.
But now, look at him! He's eating up the attention!
Mama Donna tried to tell Leah that this was a blog for Oodles, but Leah wouldn't listen. She feels that Ariel, the Boston Terrier, should get her day in the spotlight. Since she's my bed buddy and lets me eat from her bowl, I'm agreeing with Leah. We play really well together because she's more my size. She headbutts me now and then, but I think that's just a BT thing.
Here she is sunning on the back deck.
He gobbles down his dinner.
He leaves an awful mess,
While I take small and proper bites
And I eat so much less.
