Thursday sighting confirmed! Track now underway

Beth, Sam and Salsa are now on an active track based on a Thursday sighting at Colombia Country Club. This means that Salsa (the tracking dog) has confirmed that it was Sassafras at the club on Thursday.

The track has just started (and it sounds like they are currently headed toward downtown Bethesda on the Georgetown Branch Trail)... more details about where it went when it's over.

We're highly likely to be asking volunteers to help with flyering and other efforts tomorrow.... Fingers crossed, toes crossed that we might be bringing Sass home soon!


  1. Follow updates of the track on our twitter feed.

  2. Track call off at 2:00 PM because was walking on familiar territory (down Connecticut Ave toward Chevy Chase Circle)... area is well-flyered.

    Since we're 2 days since sighting, there's not much more to learn. (In other words, the track does not catch up with Sass, it just gives a sense of her territory... This track confirmed it was her and that she's in territory she's been in before).

  3. Can't wait until the day I come to this site and it says Sass found! Keep up the search! Amazing dedication!
