The Tracker Checks Two Possible Sightings: Glover Park & Jackson/10th

Yesterday, we asked the tracker to check two of our possible sightings.  Bottom line:  Both ruled out; neither was our Sassy girl.

I'm not sure how to describe the day.  I was something of a nervous wreck before meeting Sam and Salsa, because my mind was playing the "what if?" game with me.  After we were done, and knew that neither sighting was Sass, Jeff asked how I felt and I really didn't know how to respond.  Disappointed, of course.  But also numb to that disappointment.

Please keep watching for Sass!  We're still waiting for the lucky break that will bring her home!


  1. Sass....come home!!! My thoughts are with your family, I so hope you are able to find your beautiful little girl. Reiki sent!!! {{{HUGS}}}

  2. How are the trackers able to determine that it was not Sass? Did they find another dog instead?

  3. In case you didn't know about, I did a quick search on the rescues listed in DC (and a beagle rescue in Arlington) and sent them the info on Sass along with your website URL.

    I've also started walking from the L'Enfant metro to Union Station (where I work) and looking for her in park bushes along the way just in case. I will print out flyers to hand out to the people walking their dogs on the Mall as well. I learned about Sass from a poster down near Union Station.

  4. Thank you very much, rikkicat. Thanks very nice!

    On Darren's question, the tracking dog smells items with Sass' scent and then sniffs for that scent in the air/on the ground, as the human walks them around... If the dog doesn't find the scent, we determine Sass was not there...
