Paws and claws: Fluff alarm

Mambo is a three-year-old Goldendoodle
Mambo is a pup who knows how to live the life. This three-year-old Goldendoodle is even named for an East Dallas favorite. In honor of Mi Cocina’s famous frozen beverage, her full name is Mambo No-Salt Newman. Neighbors Ashley and Drew Newman brought her home just two weeks after marrying each other, and she has soaked in the lifestyle of our neighborhood ever since. When she isn’t patrolling the back yard for invading squirrels, she is saying hello to package deliveries and serving as a 6:15 a.m. alarm clock for her owners, bombarding Ashley and Drew with 45 pounds of fluff. You may see her strutting her stuff around town in an Alabama Crimson Tide (Ashley’s alma mater), a Texas Longhorn (Drew’s alma mater) or a Dallas Cowboys (one they can agree on) jersey.
