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!

Will You Pray for Me?

A prayer request from my Mama Donna: 

I have grave news. I took Angel for an ultrasound and she has a tumor in her bladder. It is near the urinary tract which is why she strains to urinate. Because of its location, surgery is not an option. She is going to be on treatment for the rest of her life to try to reduce the size of the tumor. If/when the tumor shrinks, it will give her relief. They are slow-growing, so if the meds shrink it, it won't grow back swiftly. If it does grow too large, it would, of course, block her from urinating at all, which would be terrible. So please pray for my little sweetheart, Angel. She's lying in her little bed a foot from my feet now and is never very far from me. I can't imagine losing her. Thank you so much.

Mama Donna

I am absolutely praying that the meds cause the tumor to shrink, and that GOD causes it to absolutely disappear!!! I know how much you love your Angel. God loves you even more. Praying He grants this desire of your heart. Love you.

Thank you, Elaine. I appreciate that. I took her back to the vet last Friday and the tumor had shrunk a little. They gave me a bunch of herbal meds to start her on, but I've been hesitant because of side effects. Pray I have wisdom on what to do. I surely don't want Angel's quality of life to suffer. Everyone at the vets' office loved her and talked about what a sweet dog she is. Love you, too! - Mama Donna
