She's a Wanderer: A Quick Update on Tonight's Track to American University

We'll have the map of the track up later tonight or tomorrow, but we followed Sassafras' scent for 4.69 miles, ending up on the campus of American University. We stopped after about 2 hours, because the tracking dog was getting tired (she is being treated for cancer), and because we'd just figured out where Sassafras had found a water supply. It seemed like a good note to end on for the evening.

Step by step - each one bringing us a little closer to Sassy. We hope!


  1. I have been following your story for a while and am so excited about the recent developments. It all sounds so promising and I pray for good news soon. I also have a little girl (Gracie the puggle), so I can understand the love and commitment you guys have to finding her. Please let me know if you need additional help with volunteers. I'd love to do anything I can.
    Keeping my fingers crossed and prayers sent for a reunion very soon!

  2. Thanks very much for the offer to help. Please send us an email so we can contact you directly...

  3. It breaks my heart every time I go to American University and see your posters still up. You are very good parents to Sassafras and I hope you find her soon.
