Sam is cautiously optimistic, because Sass is looping back to places - not just wandering aimlessly. She's got water and food sources, but I wish she'd stop crossing large, busy streets!
For volunteers who can flyer tomorrow: Once we have that map from Sam of tonight's route, we'll have a better idea of where to target, but we're headed to Chevy Chase.
And if you're wondering what a track is like, here's what Jeanne wrote about it:
It was a privilege to go on the track, to meet Sam and Salsa and watch them in action, and to learn from Lisa, who has lots of experience with dogs (and their people) through her work with Homeward Trails' rescues. It is quite exciting when Salsa picks up Sassafras's scent. What follows is a suspenseful adventure through some beautiful and upscale neighborhoods, thanks to Sassafras's champagne tastes. She, and consequently we, even made a stop at the Chevy Chase Country Club. All of this has the added benefit, if you are a walker and explorer as I am, of great exercise, education, and interesting encounters with helpful people. The best part, though, is knowing that Sassafras has been seen, can be tracked, has food and water sources, and remains safe to be found and returned to her family.
