About Me!

I'm Angel, a purebreed poodle. I know the book is called Poodle AND Doodle, but this blog should be all about ME. I'm the true star in the family, you know. I go every few weeks to the groomer to get beautified, and I do my nails every morning. The other dogs don't even go to the groomer. Mama Donna adopted me after my first owner's cat tried to treat me like a mouse. After getting shook around a few times, I was ready to leave. At the time I only weighed about three pounds. I'm up to about twelve pounds now, so that makes me a lightweight in this house, but I'm still the boss. Just ask me.

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!

Sadie's New Toy

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?

Henry - the Goldendoodle

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!

Not One Bit Poodle or Doodle

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.

Excerpt and Sneak Peek from Poodle & Doodle

Okay, normally I'm kinda cool about all this book stuff, but Mama Donna is excited to share another illustration from this book she wrote about Sadie and me. In the book, Sadie is a boy named Scruffy. Thankfully, she left me alone. I'm still a female poodle, and that's a good thing. Why mess with perfection?

He gobbles down his dinner.
He leaves an awful mess,
While I take small and proper bites
And I eat so much less.

Sadie Looking Good

Sadie got all brushed out, and I must say, she looks good. So fluffy - not scruffy at all!

Raleigh - Goldendoodle

Remember how I said Raleigh follows Mama Donna around when she has the camera? Here's more evidence. He should be called Hamdoodle!

David Rocked Goliath

Mama found this video starring two Booples named Poodle and Doodle. Isn't that funny? They sure don't look like 'oodles to me!

Did you color the coloring page?

Mike did and sent his masterpiece to Mama Donna. Great job, Mike! I look good with dark hair, don't I?
