My sister Luna, Mommy's lap, tummy rubs and the monkey toy.

Cold paws, anyone on the computer, Luna getting attention and her trick knee

Favorite Toy:
Anything that squeeks, including my sister Luna. I also like ice cubes and sticks in the yard.

Favorite Food:
Food, who has time for food when there are toys around? When I am forced to eat, I prefer chicken jerky.

Favorite Walk:
Aquilla Park, Lake Calhoun and all over Mommy

Best Tricks:
Every item in the house that is on the floor is now in my bed.

Arrival Story:
We put ourselves on a long waiting list for another Schnoodle at a better breeder shortly after adopting Solei's sister Luna. Just about a year later, Solei stole our hearts and we were fortunate enough to be high enough on the list to get her. All her other littermates are scattered about, but we were fortunate enough to only be an hour from the breeder. We are so happy to have two furry babies who are smart, fun and don't make us sneeze!

Solei has a large dog family, including sister Luna, Aunt Roxie, cousins Stella, Pijo and Buddy, close friends Sadie, Frosty, Manny and Kitty Kitty Snickelfritz, and her neighbors Bingly and Buddy.

Solei tore her achilles tendon in May of 2011 and had immediate surgery. The surgery failed in July and she had another. Unfortunately she is still not 100% and will likely spend the rest of her life in a custom orthopedic brace to keep her leg stable.

My mom has been spitting mad lately with all the news and images of the dog fighting that Quarterback Michael Vick and his "friends" are accused of running. She says that hundreds of thousands of animals are "adopted" every year for the sole purposes of using them to kill other animals or to be killed. Big dogs, like my Aunt Roxie, think they are being adopted to loving homes only to find themselves having to kill or be killed to satisfy their new owners who are looking to make money off them.

Mommy is starting to write letters to organizations urging them to stand up against animal fighting and wants everyone to do the same. I have attached a letter below that my Mom wrote to, who sells animal fighting magazines and books. Please tell your parents to take the time to cut and paste the letter and send it to Amazon to show them that animals should be lovers and not fighters, and to boycot amazon until they start respecting the animals. Thanks!


The following letter can be mailed to customer service through, through the American Humane Society at the following link, or directly to Amazon at 1516 2nd Ave., Seattle, WA 98101.

Dear Jeff Bezos , Founder & CEO;

Michael Vick’s career as an NFL Quarterback is over due to his involvement in an animal fighting ring. This should be a wake up call to all engaged in the support and promotion of these cruel and horrific acts against animals; the American public is not going to tolerate any person or company associated with torturing animals. The backlash against animal fighting and cruelty is not just directed at those running these fights, it also includes those who sell books and magazines aimed at promoting animal fighting, which includes

I was disgusted to discover that continues to sell publications that promote and support animal fighting, a practice that not only hurts and kills hundreds of thousands of animals but also puts adults and children at risk of attack. Despite repeated pleas from the American Humane Society to stop selling these magazines and books, will not take a stand against animal torture nor comply with federal laws banning the sale of such publications.

If a plea by the American Humane Society and threats of lawsuits for violating federal laws prohibiting the sale and distribution of materials aimed at promoting animal fighting is not enough, perhaps it is time for your customers to send an even louder message and stop purchasing from Amazon until these publications are pulled from your virtual shelves. Your online audience is your lifeline, and as this same audience learns of the support you lend to the animal fighting industry by continuing to sell these barbaric publications, your sales will surly start to plummet.

There is no First Amendment right to sell publications promoting and soliciting the purchase of fighting animals and weapons. These publications are as morally repugnant as child pornography and selling these publications makes you no better then those actually engaging in torturing these animals. I urge you to not only comply with federal law, but do the morally and ethically right thing by pulling animal fighting publications from your sales line. The community of animal lovers dedicated to stopping this practice by boycotting will hurt your sales much more then pulling animal fighting publications from your virtual shelves.

I was running around the backyard yesterday when something really, really scared me. I don't know what's wrong, I just know something hurts so bad it is making me shake alot. Mommy called the vet today who told her to give me a baby asprin twice a day for the pain. If I'm not feeling better by Monday I have to go see the vet. Mommy is really worried I tore something, like a ligament. I hope I'll be okay by Thursday when we fly to NY to see Grandma.

I have a new best friend. Her name is Kitty Kitty Snickelfritz and she is so much fun. Mom and Dad said we can't bring her home but I get to see her everytime I visit Frosty and Manny's house. Apparently Snickelfritz and I aren't supossed to get along, but we don't care, we love eachother to bits.
