TODAY show web site - "Is their lost dog a lost cause? Internet cries no!"

Hard to fathom that our Sassafras is garnering national attention, as in the new (and very well done) TODAY show web post.

Author Laura T. Coffey asks a great question that hints at how we've been able to go on:
But even though they’re exhausted, how can they stop searching for Sassafras when so many big-hearted strangers haven’t?
We just want Sass back and everyone's support has been so appreciated. Please do read and circulate the article. It does a great job of highlighting the efforts of those involved in the search!


  1. Oops!My comment was just deleted!

    I just wanted to tell you that while I don't live in DC, your story is getting out there and I'm sending you well wishes and prayers all the way from Cincinnati OH!

    We just got a pup at the end of April and I can't imagine how you all must be feeling. I hope that your family is reunited good it is going to feel when she is back home where she belongs!

    Wishing you all the best and I am going to keep checking for good news!

  2. Your story has also reached us in St. Louis. We send our prayers and hope for the best!

  3. Here in NY and read about your story.
    Do you have a FB page? If so, hat is it? There is a cat lost at the airport and they have created a FB page, "Jack The Cat is Lost in AA Baggage at JFK" that's why I thought to ask. Good luck!

  4. Everyone here in Maryland knows about Jack the cat also!

  5. Oh, this is a fantastic article! I'm so glad the story is getting this attention, and I SO hope that Sass comes home soon. I want to see pictures of that bonfire. Much love to you all!
