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. The publisher has a page for Poodle & Doodle. Click HERE. It's on sale on Barnes & Noble. Click HERE to order! To order directly from the publisher or get the eBook, click HERE.
Mama Donna's Books for Kids:
Two of my favorite furry friends, Frankie and Sparkles, have come together to help children in a fun way. Visit their blog here: http://www.frankieandsparkles.com/
Visit Frankie's blog and watch his video about his life. If you're like Mama Donna, you might need to have a tissue handy: Joyful Paws
In this one, I think Rudy is finally getting the hang of it!
For more fun, visit Doggy Dish Cam.
Poor Angel sees the worst in this "lesser" dog. First impressions did little to impress Angel. As Scruffy settles in, Angel begins to realize this dog may have a few beneficial qualities. Children can learn from Angel's example to search for the good in others. The reasons they have for disliking something may turn into the qualities they love. - J. Aday Kennedy, A Writing Playground
Mama Donna's first book for children, Topsy Turvy Land, was published by Hidden Pictures Publishing. Liz Ball has her hidden picture puzzles in newspapers, magazines, and publications all across the United States and internationally, too!
It looks like Beau has a "Beware of Dog" sign, but he doesn't look like he'd be too dangerous, does he?
*Click on the picture, then print! It will print out full size ready to be colored. If that doesn't work with your printer, right click on the picture, and then 'save picture as...' and then you can print it out using your photo program.
I'd like to thank all the little people that made this all possible... especially Jack Foster, who drew me so well in Poodle and Doodle.
First the rules:
1: Thank the person who gave you the award and link to them.
2: Add the award to your blog
3: Tell six outrageous lies about yourself and One Truth.
4: Nominate six creative liars... I mean writers and post links to them.
5: Let your nominees know that they have been nominated.
OK, Let's see if you can figure out which is the truth:
1. Mama Donna lets me sleep in her bed every night.
2. My favorite treat is banana slices.
3. Daddy (doggy daddy) was a champion AKC poodle.
4. Mommy (mommy mutt) was a Great Dane.
5. I've ridden in an airplane three times.
6. I love, love, love going to the groomer and being beautified.
7. And finally, Mama Donna tells everyone she sings, but she couldn't carry a tune in a bucket.
... and now for my six nominees:
1. Mayra Calvani - Pets and their Authors
2. Donna McDine - Write What Inspires You
3. Dayna Hilton - Sparkles, the Fire Safety Dog
4. Lea Schizas - The Writing Jungle
5. Shari Lyle-Soffe - Children's Books and More
6. Kathy Stemke - Education Tipster
I hope Mama Donna's friends join in the fun and nominate some of the ones she would have liked to add to the list. Have fun!
Now...which one of those things I listed is the Truth? Think you know? Betcha don't! Woof!
Great post on Paw Nation!
Mama Donna, Sadie, and I thank you!
PooPa, what do you have to say about us poodles?
"Thanks, Angel, for having me as your guest blogger today. For years, Poodles were the # 1 dog in America. But today, some people have replaced us with the following order:
1 Labrador Retrievers
2 German Shepherd Dogs
3 Yorkshire Terriers
4 Golden Retrievers
10 Shih Tzu
Number NINE? Us Poodles, and our owners, would disagree. Who are these people anyway?
And there are those who say that there’s not much you can do with a Poodle. Are they kidding? We can do all sorts of things, as evidenced by the following pictures:
Did you see me in the Super Bowl? Anytime there was a dog pile, I was there.
Everybody knows that Poodles make great hunting dogs.
Sure, we aren't the biggest dogs. Angel's Mama Donna says I look like a Half-Pint Dog in a Ten-Gallon Hat.
How many of those big dogs have ever been pirates? I have.
I graduated # 1 in my obedience class. Shoot, I could have taught that class with two paws tied behind my back.
Please! Poodles are much too good for such silly tasks.
Watch for me this weekend in the Daytona 500. They haven’t given my car a number yet, or I’d let you know now.
One day I might even write a book .
Angel here. Isn't PooPa a talented dog? I would expect no less from a poodle! Thanks, PooPa, for being my guest today and letting my readers know more about how great we Poodles are. I hope you do write a book like Mama Donna did!
Here's a fun one:
We have so enjoyed the book! My son's best friend's name is Leah and she is crazy about dogs. Perfect!This one made Mama Donna cry a little bit:
The story itself has touched a friend in a very unexpected way. They have a daughter and just adopted another girl from China, The story runs parallel with their biological daughter's initial response to the adoption and to her eventual acceptance of her new sister. Very cool!
