'Mickey was very bright, curious, and above all else, exceptionally brave. He faced the world and his personal obstacles with outstanding courage, humor, and intelligence. If Mickey could have spoken or tapped out sentences on a keyboard, I am confident this is how he would have described his life.'
Mickey is not your average poodle-and he will tell you all about it. Mickey is hounded by his need to look good. Some call this vanity; poodles call this reality. From his sparkling teeth to his pristine hair, this poodle is proud as a peacock-nay, proud as a poodle-about his appearance. Mickey knows games and food, but he knows pain too. Mickey has several bouts with illness but overcomes with the love of his owner, Mom, and bravery of his own.
Author Toni Johnstone gives Mickey a voice while capturing all the idiosyncrasies and peccadillos that come from a relationship between animal and owner. 'Dogifying' is what Mickey does; he leaves his mark on every piece of furniture, every type of shoe, and every person in his life. Dogified: A Poodle's Memoir is just one story of one owner whose life was changed, or dogified. Mickey will no doubt train readers in the way of all things, the way of the poodle.
