A Check of Chevy Chase Circle with Sam and Salsa

We asked Sam and Salsa to come check Chevy Chase Circle for us today, hoping that it was still an active enough site for Sassafras that Salsa could pick up a scent there.  Unfortunately, in three loops around the circle, Salsa didn't find any trace of Sassafras.

Sam was quick to point out that we've been having the coldest weather Sass has faced, and that the Circle is open and paved, making it a cold spot -- and thus sort of unattractive to a dog trying to stay warm.  It's possible that the cold will limit Sass' roaming a bit, if she's found a warm place to den for a bit (although it is unlikely to change her overwhelming pattern of movin' on all the time).

Sam, after finishing at the Circle with us, was on her way to check on a sighting of Olivia - so we really hope Salsa was able to confirm that sighting.

A bunch of volunteers took flyers today, and we're re-flyering and updating in the Chevy Chase neighborhoods where Sassafras gets spotted the most in addition to the eastern side of Rock Creek Park.  Thank-you!

Please keep thinking good thoughts - this would definitely be a week we'd be thankful to have our Sassy girl back home with us.
