Susan's memoir, Lost and Found In Spain: Tales of an Ambassador’s Wife, focuses on her 2008 to 2012 post at the U.S. Embassy in Madrid, Spain, where her husband, Alan Solomont, served as Ambassador under an appointment by President Barack Obama. In Stella the Ambassadog, Stella Blu the cockapoo is on her way across the ocean to a city called Madrid. Stella’s father (a human) is the new U.S. Ambassador to Spain and Stella is going to serve as the Ambassadog. She will make her new home at the U.S. Embassy and represent the United States all across Spain, from parades and palaces to parks and parties.
