Favorite Food:

Favorite Walk:
Lowenstein Park or around our neighborhood - definitely someplace familiar to her

Best Tricks:
Sophi knows lots of basics: sit, down, stand, stay, here, shake, wave, gimme five...but the one I like the most is sitting her dinner down and having her wait until I say "eat." I try to trick her by saying other words besides eat, but she is never fooled

Arrival Story:
About seven years after my Miniature Schnauzer, Samantha, passed away it was time for a new dog. I didn't want another Mini because I felt like it could never live up to Sam. I wanted a big dog but one that didn't shed...and so came Sophi. Sophi is my first dog that I purchased. Being a first time dog owner, I was clueless on breeders, good vs. bad. I found an ad in the paper and called, out of fourteen littermates, two were left. So I drove about 3 hours into Southern Missouri, heart of puppy mill country. When I got there and saw all these poor and helpless dogs in very small runs, some giving birth, all matted and smelly. The 'breeder' took me to the Airedales and between Sophi and her sister, there was something in Sophi's eyes that just told me she was the one. So, Sophi came home with me. She was four months old by then and lacked in socialization. So she is my 'trouble' dog, but my heart dog as well. I couldn't ask for anything better! She is, through and through, MY dog.

True to Airedale form, she is the biggest jokester and the biggest goofball that ever lived! She has so many funny antics and the laughter she gives me is so rewarding and meaningful. And the little stinker can survey what is on a counter and snatch it long before you are even clued into the fact that something is missing. She is a counter surfer extraordinaire! Her famous fiascos include a 6 lb thing of peanut butter, a newly filled cannister of sugar, a filled cannister of flower, a filled cannister of powdered sugar, coffee grounds, coffee filters, coffee creamer, fish oil capsules (NOT a fun thing to clean up what comes out of her!) and oh so much more! In a split second she can have something off the counter and on MY bed... she is good, really good!

My mom told me that tomorrow I have to be a very brave girl. I have to go to the vets with my sister, Scarlet. She is very, very, very sick. The vets think she may have a really mean cancer so time is of the essence. My role is that I will give blood to my sister if we match. So if you can, send prayers for me and send loads of them to Scarlet tomorrow. She is having her spleen removed and I will be giving her any blood she needs, if I am a match. I hope I am because I don't want to loose Scarlet. Please think good thoughts and send lots of prayers for us tomorrow. We would really appreciate it, more than words can say.



Someone new!

I got to meet another Airedale yesterday. My mom brought her home - she smelled a little, and her fur was long and shaggier and had stick-tights all in her but when she saw me, we immediately hit it off! We first did a little hello sniff and then we politely play bowed to one another and then we ran around all over! My mom called this Airedale Bonnie and she was really cute. She looked a lot like me! I guess someone did not want her cause she was in the shelter but now she is in the hand of Airedale Rescue, thank goodness!

Bonnie was going to stay with us but my sister Scarlet and my brothers Max and Samson were not happy. And we are so packed in our home now ... but shhh, mom really wants her to stay with us and I think she is trying to figure out a way how to make it work. I am totally fine with it so long as she knows that I get the bed!



My Tail of Devotion for Sophia Jewel, CGC

To my dearest Sophia,

I wasn't prepared for you but I knew I wanted you. That fateful February day in 1999 was the day my life would forever be changed. Between you and your sister, both looking so similar, I could not tell which one I wanted. But there was something in your eyes, and it was just the slightest glimmer of something that told me you belonged to me. We have been a pair ever since.

You have taught me strength, humility, have given me joy, sorrow, anger, laughter, and an undying sense of love. I truly hope I can live up to all that you desire from me and need from me and want from me.

We've traveled together, we've played together, we've worked together, we've trained together, we've snuggled together, we've soothed one another. And I have enjoyed and cherished every single minute of our journey together, and will forever continue to do so. I know at some point our paths will lead us in separate directions, but you will always be in my heart forever. Your place in my heart is embedded very deeply and it will never be covered because you, My Sophia, are my heart.

Love forever,

This is a special Tail of Devotion
