    Canine Friendship

    The balance of friendship can be a difficult one to understand. At times one may feel they are overshadowed by a friend and become frustrated. Poodle and Doodle by Donna J. Shepherd explores an unexpected friendship in this delightful rhyming story of two distinctly different dogs.

    What comes forth through the eyes of one fancy poodle pup, Angel, is her own insecurities of having another dog around. When Scruffy, a cross between Poodle and Labrador is brought home by their owner, Leah, havoc ensues wherever Scruffy goes. His less than stellar manners appall Angel until the "ah-ha" moment that Scruffy is not so bad and is actually fun to have around.

    Shepherd wonderfully brings to life real life issues all humans contend with in finding their place with friends. Most of all, we are all individuals whether canine or human and should appreciate the positives in all we meet.

    Illustrator, Jack Foster brings the canine characters to life with their young owner, Leah, making it an adventure to read over and over again.

    Charming children's story

    Poor little Poodle isn't too happy when his mistress brings Scruffy home from the pound. A huge Labradoodle, Scruffy not only is messy, but he is huge, eats a lot, drinks from the toilet, and even has fleas! Though he steals food from the counter, knocks things down while running through the house, and does not have the class of a pedigreed Poodle, he is good in some ways...he can chase the neighbor's cat up a tree, he offers shelter from the rain, body heat from the cold, and he does like Poodle!!!

    This charming children's story in delightful rhyme will amuse every reader as it shows there IS room for more than one dog in the family. Illustrations add to this giving the tale a heartwarming visual.

    Highly Recommended

    My Review: Angel couldn’t understand why Leah would bring home another dog. Her question was, “I’m a fancy poodle pup. Am I not dog enough?” She just could not understand why Leah needed a dog like Scruffy that gobble down his dinner while she takes small bites, or drink out of the toilet or roll around like a mutt in wet and weedy grass; this dog shows no doggie class at all (funny). But she discovers that there may be a reason for keeping him around after all.

    Some children find it hard to accept change for example; they can feel overshadowed by a new friend or a new baby. But the lesson in this book is about friendship and how to adapt to change.

    Whether you love dogs or not Poodle and Doodle is a cute story that children and adults will find funny. The beautiful illustration done by Jack Foster helps bring the book to life with its bright and bold colors. I highly recommend this book for you children home library and for classroom teaching.
